Did you know you can cook two dishes at the SAME TIME in your pressure cooker? These recipes are written with clear directions to help walk you through the process step-by-step. That means you can cook a chicken & vegetable stir fry, along with a side of rice for serving it, all at the same time! Or, you can make the filling for Shepherd’s Pie, plus the mashed potato topping, all in the same pot. It saves time & clean-up!
You can also make a 2-layer cake, with a healthy frosting to go with it (all at the same time!), granola bars, filling salads and bowls (don’t miss the Cheeseburger Salad or Korean Chicken Bowls), brownies, and more. Whether you are a vegetarian or omnivore, there’s something here for everyone.
Frequently Asked Questions
The recipes in this cookbook are designed for an electric pressure cooker, but it does not have to be Instant Pot brand. There are no specialty settings involved!
If you do not have a pressure cooker at all, you’ll still be able to enjoy many of the recipes (especially the salads & dressings) but oven and stove top methods are NOT included in this book, so you’ll have to experiment with cooking times on your own.
There are gluten-free options included for every single recipe in this cookbook, but there are a few recipes that do call for gluten containing grains, including whole wheat flour, farro, and barley.
Be sure to look for the “Make It Gluten-Free” note at the bottom of these recipes, if you need to.
This is not a 100% vegetarian cookbook. Out of the 75 recipes included, 16 of them do call for meat or fish. (Most of these are found in the Protein-Packed Favorites chapter.)
With that being said, there is a tested vegan alternative for every single recipe in this book, so you can still enjoy those recipes if you don’t consume meat or dairy.
