I have to confess – I’m an Instant Pot newbie. I only JUST got one, and am a little confused on how to use it / am afraid I might blow the top off my new apartment (only kidding). I’d been wondering about them for a while since I devoured my way through Nom Nom Paleo’s first cookbook, and she had a couple recipes with an Instant Pot in them. To be honest, it looked like a scary kitchen tool (and you know me, I’m not intimidated by much in the kitchen!) But then, I got my hands on Nom Nom Paleo’s newest cookbook, Ready or Not…and I KNEW I needed an Instant Pot. But I’m not newbie to the Whole30, or making meal prep easy and fast. So I knew I had to get over my fear of pressure cooking and make some Whole30 Instant Pot recipes for you guys!
Fun fact about the Instant Pot / Electric pressure cookers – they can also double as a slow cooker, a sauté pan, steamer, rice cooker (for after your Whole30!), cook hard-boiled eggs for you…the possibilities are basically endless for this amazing kitchen tool. It will also not blow up like old pressure cookers (because they’re electric and self-monitoring) – for the win!
