Instant Pot 2 Minute Steamed Broccoli

Welcome to my Instant Pot 2 minute steamed broccoli recipe.

Welcome to my Instant Pot 2 minute steamed broccoli recipe. How about some delicious freshly cooked broccoli cooked in the Instant Pot in just 2 short minutes.

We all complain that we don’t have the time to cook fresh delicious food don’t we? That we have our super busy lives and the idea of cooking from fresh ingredients each day is just way too time consuming.

Then you spend 5 minutes reading a takeaway menu and another 5 minutes on the telephone ordering it, for a takeaway to arrive 30 minutes later and to your disappointment the delivery is all wrong and cold.

But what if I told you that the first recipe that I wanted to share with you from my brand new Instant Pot is actually some simple steamed broccoli that you can cook in just 2 minutes?

You would probably think I was crackers and that I needed shipping off the funny farm and when Dominic cooked it in our Instant Pot in just 2 minutes I thought he was crackers too!

Instant Pot Recipes – The Outtakes

I am sat in the lounge on the laptop watching TV while Sofia is playing with her new baby dolly. Dominic is about to use the Instant Pot for the first time and mentions that it better be good with all the money is has cost as he goes off to steam some broccoli.

He comes back 5 minutes later with the line “I just cooked broccoli in 2 minutes” and “this is some serious bit of kit”.

I think we are safe to say he is a fan!
