The Ultimate Instant Pot Recipe Collection

Have you jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet? 

If you don’t really know what an Instant Pot is {I didn’t really know either}, it’s a programmable pressure cooker that can also be used as a slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté pan, steamer, and yogurt maker. It speeds up cooking and they claim that it preserves more nutrients in the food and saves energy as well. 

I will be honest, I was not an early adopter here. I kept hearing all of these people talk about how great they were, and I kept seeing all of these recipes pop up all over my news feed and on Pinterest, but I just didn’t get it. Not having a huge kitchen, I couldn’t really fathom getting yet another appliance.

Then, Amazon Prime Day came around and Dave, who cannot resist a good Amazon sale, ordered one. {This is the one we have.}

And now we’re kind of obsessed.

The Ultimate Instant Pot Recipe Collection -- 100 mouthwatering recipes for the Instant Pot.

It’s completely nuts how many different things you can make with them, and it’s also nuts how quickly things cook. We’ve made Chicken Tikka Masala in less than 30 minutes, and Pulled Pork in a couple of hours. 

I have been gathering recipes on my Instant Pot Pinterest page {make sure to follow it, as I’m adding new recipes all the time!}, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites here. 

I’ve compiled a collection of 100 amazing recipes, divided into four sections: Breakfast, Main Dishes, Sides/Snacks, and Dessert {yeah, you can make dessert in the Instant Pot!}. 

I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these, and if you have a favorite recipe that I haven’t included here, let me know in the comments!

NOTE: I have compiled these projects from some of my favorite blogs and websites. To pin any of these individual projects, please click on the link below each photo and pin from the original source. To pin the entire collection, use the photo above. Thank you!
