January Theme – Instant Pot

I’m super excited to cook with Instant Pot during the month of January. Your meals are going to taste SO GOOD this month, pinky promise!

In September, I wrote 10 reasons I’m not buying Instant Pot. Black Friday – I bought it. At the end of January, I wrote 15 Things You Should Know About an Instant Pot.

Clearly, it has been a rollercoaster of emotions but so worth it. I love my electric pressure cooker!

Are your Instant Pot recipes healthy?

Absolutely. As healthy as they can be. Let’s be nice to each other and remember that everyone has their own understanding of “healthy”. #its2018

Is Instant Pot January family friendly?

Totally. I tested the heck out of Instant Pot during December and coming your way are our absolute healthy and delicious favourites – approved by 5 kids and 4 adults during family holidays. #kidseatrealfood

I assume some of you bought Instant Pot on Black Friday or got one for Christmas. Many of you already have one. I have 8 Quart Instant Pot (Model IP-DUO80). #itsbig

I will include 2 recipes each time: for 6 Qt and 8 Qt models. I recommend to buy 8 quart only if you feed 5+ people, love leftovers or cook a lot of soups. Otherwise, 6 quart Instant Pot will suffice. #trustme

All main meals that are warm and comforting (#janury), and that make sense to be made in Instant Pot. At the end of the day, it’s about saving time. #instantpoteggs

  1. So glad you are doing Instant Pot recipes! My main issue with my Instant Pot is how much liquid to put in when I’m trying to convert a traditional recipe to Instant Pot. Many times I end up putting too much liquid in and then it won’t come to pressure and cook properly. Very frustrating. Definitely a learning curve to this appliance.

    1. Hi Carrie. I recommend reading this article about max levels. You should have no issues with pressure afterwards. This appliance is mathematical haha. I found regular recipes need some adaptation because during pressure cooking many ingredients get overcooked and flavours intensified. So, really a mathematical approach by trying what works. I hear you. Well, you will enjoy this month’s recipes then.
