Never heard of a pressure cooker? It’s amazing! It’s more than a basic food cooker—it’s a machine designed to cook food super fast. Imagine a sous vide machine. Except not enormous and taking up half your kitchen.


The Pressure Cooker I Use: Instant Pot

If you’re at all considering buying a pressure cooker I recommend the instant pot. They go far and beyond a basic crock pot. Plus you can make all these delicious (and healthy) recipes! It’s a great purchase for so many reasons.

How I Use My Pressure Cooker

I find new ways to use my pressure cooker all the time but here are some of the foods I prep weekly for my family

Beans – Each week I make a batch of beans, either black or pinto. I soak the beans overnight (or during the day if I forget to soak them the night before) and pressure cook them on the bean/chili setting for 30-40 minutes. The beans cook perfectly on this setting and I love that I don’t have to have them cooking all day long like I use to with my crock pot!

Whole Chicken & Broth – I’ll cook a whole chicken in my pressure cooker, remove the meat, add veggies and make broth.

Steamed Artichokes – My family LOVES artichokes! One of the easiest ways to cook artichokes is in a pressure cooker on the steam setting. I trim the artichokes, add water and the steam basket, then steam them for 20 minutes.

Potatoes – I peel and cut my potatoes and cook them in water for 5-8 minutes. I store the taters in my fridge until I’m ready to use them. I’ll toss them on my salads, mash them and add butter (easy mashed potatoes) or toss them in my cast iron with coconut oil and make breakfast potatoes.
