Easy Instant Pot Side Dish Recipes
I am loving my instant pot! It truly has changed dinner time around here. In the past if I forgot to menu plan or take something out of the freezer, that meant take out or the dreaded drive thru! That can add up fast and it’s not even that good let alone healthy! Since purchasing my instant pot, we rarely get take out. I can whip up dinner in no time even if the meat is still frozen. You can see the instant pot I use here but there are tons of other pressure cookers you can use too.
Here are some of my favorite Easy Pressure Cooker Side Dish Recipes!
These are quick and easy and sure to please the entire family. You can also feed a crowd and have some for leftovers during the week.
From baked potatoes and rice to carrots and green beans, there is something for everyone! I could make a meal out of several side dishes! However, if you are looking for some easy ideas for main dishes try Easy Grilled Recipes, Easy Enchilada Recipes and Easy Chicken Pasta Recipes .
