Instant Pot Steamed Vegetables

Sometimes your body asks you for something healthy. In those cases, I like to make these pressure cooker Steamed vegetables.

It’s really easy and can be added to any meal as a healthy side dish or even alone as a light dinner.

Feel free to use any other veggies you like : Bell peppers, broccoli, carrots etc.

If you gonna use carrots, add 1 minute for the cooking time. For a vegan recipe, just leave out the butter.

Usually, I’m using my steamer basket on these kinds of recipes. But I got some comments from users who are just starting out with the Instant Pot and don’t have all the fancy accessories yet. So I decided to make these veggies inside the pot, to show you that it’s possible.

If you DO prefer a steamer basket, you have a few options:
1. Stainless steel steamer basket
2. Silicone Steamer Basket (Use coupon code CSNR7OKG for 5% off)
3. Any steamer basket that fits your Instant Pot.
