Hey,
I just bought and instant pot to make it easier for me to make meals quickly. Im a very busy person and I dont have a lot of spare time. Im looking for recipes I can make in bulk or even just for one. If anyone has Ideas or simple recipes and care to share, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you
Kelley

Ps im allergic to Zucchini.

    I don’t have an instant pot, but Pinterest and All recipes are my go to sites for recipes. Skinny Taste too. I do know there are a lot of instant pot recipes on those sites.
    I made pork carnitas in my slow cooker yesterday. As I was cleaning it, I noticed a crack in the crock bottom both inside and outside so I’m in the market for an instant pot.

    its worth it so far for me. I love cabbage but hate how long it takes to cook. I made keilbasa cabbage the other day in 15 minutes. it was fantastic.

    My favorites in my instant pot:
    Meatballs, both Italian and BBQ are good
    Pulled chicken to then make chicken tacos
    Cajun pork loin

    I found recipes on pinterest and then I tweak them to suit our tastes

    And making hard boiled eggs is much easier in the instant pot!

    Cup of water in the pot, put the eggs on the rack, manual pressure for 6 minutes, quick release. That's its, easy peasy! For a softer boiled egg just cut the time down a bit.

    What’s an instant pot? Is that like a pressure cooker as we call them here in the UK?

    Instant pot is a brand here in the United States. And yes one of its functions is a pressure cooker.

    I love my electric pressure cooker. It's a Phillips brand one. Very similar to the Instant pot.
    This site is excellent https://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/

    black beans and chicken is ready in about 45 mins. dry black beans, frozen chicken, chopped onion, garlic, your fav taco seasoning (spice island is my fav), canned tomatoes if you have them, enough stock to cook the beans according to the package. when it's done shred the chicken with two forks. lots of protein and fiber, low cal for as full as you'll feel. Ideally it's a thick stew consistency. Eat it in a bowl or scoop it out with a slotted spoon and make tacos. top with fresh jalapeno, sour cream or yogurt. Can be vegan easily enough. Spice it heavily. I set my insta for 30-35 mins on high, let the steam mostly release on it's own.

    I've had my IP for a couple of weeks and have only done hard boiled eggs and oatmeal, so far. I did purchase a separate cookbook with it. I also joined a couple of instant pot groups on Facebook. One of them is a healthy instant pot recipe group. If you are on Facebook, think about joining one or 2!

    Poach chicken breast in IP - 5 cups cold water, salt, chicken breast. High pressure for 0 minutes and natural release. 3 ounces of chicken and 1 ounce of pepper jack is an awesome snack.

    Broccoli in IP - 1 cup water, steamer basket, 0 minutes high pressure, quick release.

    pressurecookrecipes.com They have the only chili recipe I can get my whole family to eat and it's easy to tweak.
