Instant Pot Index

In 2014, I pre-ordered the first run of Instant Pot DUO, and a new era began in my kitchen. At the time, oddly enough, I was just shopping for an appliance to sterilize substrate for growing my own oyster mushrooms (that’s a story for another day…) but I quickly realized that this multi-talented multi-cooker had a lot more to offer.

Instant Pot Healthy Recipes

I’m a registered dietitian, culinary nutritionist, and designated Food Captain of my household. I believe that cooking is an essential practice for anyone who wants to eat foods that are optimally health-promoting, sustainably/ethically produced, affordable, and enjoyable. Since inviting this pressure cooker into my kitchen, I have come to rely on its glorious set-it-and-forget-it convenience for many of my whole-foods home-cooking needs. I now consider Instant Pot a loyal sidekick in my kitchen adventures, and I made this page to serve as the home base for sharing all of those antics with you.

Double Decker Dinner! One-Pot Stackable Recipes

Double Decker Dinner is my personal favorite Instant Pot “party trick.” This recipe theme is all about finding the right combination of foods that pair together as a balanced meal, and that can be stacked and cooked at the same time in the same pressure cooker. Super efficient! With just a few simple tools (like steamer baskets and stackable insert pans) we can pair “pot in pot” (PIP) techniques with other recipes to put Instant Pot on double-duty. These Double Decker Dinner recipes are great for easy weeknight cooking, and ideal for meal prep too!
