In this instant pot round up I compiled 15 recipes that are easy healthy and delicious. These recipes include some classic family favorites as well as fresh new ideas and other recipes that are made easier in the instant pot.

In recent years with the invention of the instant pot many of us have successfully accomplished recipes that otherwise would be too hard to make or too lengthy to wait.

While the instant pot is really nothing more than a modern, fancier version of the old pressure cooker, it has certainly made folks feel at easy when handling this high pressure cooking devise.

I personally grew up cooking with the old noisy pressure cooker, but all I ever managed to make was beans. The electric multi-function pressure cooker, or Instant Pot has widen my path of experimentation.

This collection contains 15 easy and healthy instant pot recipes that I have made in the past few years. In this round up I included a wide variety of choices from your classic family favorites to new recipe ideas that you can try as well as recipes that perhaps you wouldn’t consider making if it wasn’t for the instant pot.

I hope you enjoy and try a few recipes!


NOTE: I always get asked which Instant Pot I own and recommend. This is the Instant Pot I have! and has worked well for my family of six for the most part.

  1. I have a mini Instant Pot, and I do not know how to adjust recipes. All I see are recipes for the regular sized Duo pot, so I do not use them. Is there some way I can learn how to adjust measurements for use with a mini pot?

    1. have you tried cutting down the recipe by half? I think that’s the easiest way to go about. So whatever the amount of ingredients the recipe as for, use half for everything.
