What side dishes can I make in an instant pot?
Electric pressure cookers can really cut down the cooking times of anything, making most recipes quick and easy! So, when deciding on what recipes to pressure cook on busy nights, always consider those that take the longest.
Send your partner out to grill some chicken breasts while you get busy making one of these sides:
Tada! Now, you have an easy weeknight meal without heating the kitchen!
You could even throw a main dish into your slow cooker, instead. Then, right before dinner, make up a side or two from the list above.
Can I put aluminum foil in an instant pot?
You can absolutely put aluminum foil in an instant pot. However, I’d ask why you want to…
I realize that many of us grew up watching our Moms put it around the traditional comfort food: potatoes. However, many of us didn’t actually pay that much attention to her, so now we are Googling “can I put aluminum foil in an instant pot”. LOL!
The foil is wrapped around a potato AFTER cooking to finish the cooking process and keep the potato piping hot. So, you would cook it without the foil, inside the electric pressure cooker, so that moisture can enter the potato and keep the cooking process quick.
Then, you could remove the potatoes and wrap them in aluminum foil to keep them while you finish your instant pot meal.
Everything below cooks up in one pot for easy meals that even your child can do!
Plus, with tried-and-true ingredients, the pickiest of eaters will actually enjoy the recipes!
We have included main dish, side, dish, and dessert recipes for your instant pot! Enjoy!
