If you missed our popular June Instant Pot recipes post you can catch up with that one too. 😉 Make them in an IP, Crockpot Express or as an easy Ninja Foodi recipe. Any pot works.

Almost all of these use high pressure. Some in as little as 1 minute and others with larger pieces of meat may take an hour, a far cry from in the oven though so you’re still at a big win there.

If you are new to pressure cooking we have a lot of easy one pot meal recipes for you here. To begin with let’s start with a few basic tips:

Let’s use what’s in season right now shall we??!! That always makes the freshest and tastiest meals, with only 1 step necessary many times. Start with vegetables first, these are a must this time of year! If you’re looking for a low carb keto option, or just want to try an amazing side dish our cheesy Instant Pot cauliflower is it!

We love Instant Pot spaghetti squash because it’s a great alternative to pasta but tastes amazingly similar.

Instant Pot mushrooms really can be cooked year round which is great. Served with chicken or another protein, they’re always a hit around here.

Recipes that Really Showcase the Instant Pot?

Ok so we have to use the freshness of picked fruit this month for sure. If you have an orchard or blueberry picking in your city I would highly suggest going with your kids. Then make a treat later that night with all of it like our most popular Instant Pot apple crisp!! It’s to die for really.

Cook that down a bit further to make our homemade pressure cooker applesauce! Make a few large batches and store them in mason jars so you have a healthy snack for weeks in the fridge.
