  • Add a cup of water to the bottom of the inner pot of the Instant Pot. Add the steamer shelf (trivet) and the steamer basket over it.
  • Peel and chop 4 medium sized parsnips.
  • Season the parsnips with salt and pepper.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 3 minutes on manual.
  • When it beeps manually remove pressure.


You can do up to 16 medium parsnips at once on this cooking time. It just depends on how many parsnips that you have. With a lot of Instant Pot vegetables, I cook them for 2 minutes, but parsnips can be hard like potatoes and need a little longer.
My Instant Pot parsnips is based on using them as either roasted parsnips, a side vegetable for your dinner or making them for veggie bakes. If you plan to use them for soup or mash, then I would recommend increasing the time to 5 minutes. This will then make your parsnips really soft and easy for cooking with.
