Instant Pots have recently become quit popular in the kitchens around the world. These “instant pots” are highly sought after for their speedy cooking times. We are so busy these days that it becomes easy to run to the nearest fast food restaurant to pick up a quick dinner for the family. This is not only the least healthiest option out there, but it is also costly as well.
Breakfast, Lunch, And Dinner In The Instant Pot
One of my favorite things about the Instant Pot is how versatile it is. You can cook a wide variety of dishes in this popular new electric appliance. In this post, we’re going to take a quick look at how you can cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner in this electric pressure cooker. This will come in handy when your stove is out, it’s too hot to cook inside, you’re on vacation, or when you’re cooking with your Instant Pot in your dorm room for example.
Of course these aren’t the only times the versatility of the Instant pot will come in handy. I like to use my Instant Pot multiple times per week and cook a wide variety of dishes in it for any time of the day. Let’ me quickly run you through some family favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Breakfast In The Instant Pot
Let’s start with the first meal of the day – breakfast. There are all sorts of great dishes you can make in the Instant Pot. With the sauté function, you can even use it to scramble up some eggs or cook sausage in a pinch.
Where the Instant Pot really shines is with oatmeal. Some of the best tasting steel cut oats come from cooking them in this popular electric appliance. No constant stirring required for creamy and nutritious oats.
You can even hard boil a large quantity of eggs in your Instant Pot. Perfect for make ahead breakfast meals that last you all week long.
Lunch In The Instant Pot
Since the Instant Pot does such a great job at fixing soups and stews, it’s perfect for lunchtime cooking as well. With a quick google search you’ll be able to find plenty of yummy recipes to try as well as lots of directions for adapting your own favorite recipes.
It’s also a great way to cook one pot meals including pasta and rice dishes that are perfect for lunch. And let’s not forget about everyone’s favorite – Mac and Cheese. If on the other hand you’re in the mood for a nice salad, try boiling eggs for it in the instant pot, or even making an entire batch of potato salad in it from start to finish.
Dinner In The Instant Pot
Last but not least, let’s talk about dinner. This is where the Instant pot really shines. It’s great for easy weeknight dinners that can be cooked from start to finish in the instant pot like a nice big batch of beef stew, or your favorite chicken dish for example.
Pressure cookers have always been the best way to deal with large roasts and tougher cuts of meat. Cook your pot roast or a big batch of homemade pulled pork in the slow cooker for a nice Sunday dinner.
And let’s not forget about side dishes. From various rice dishes to mashed, or scalloped potatoes, the instant pot can take care of your main side dish for you while you’re busy cooking anything else.
Using your Instant Pot will help you to cook healthy meals for your family for a fraction of the cost of take out food. With it’s speedy cooking time, you will have a healthy meal prepared in less time than it takes to run out for take out anyways.
