  • Trim down the very end of the asparagus so that you don’t have that incredibly hard end. Then look at how they fit in the Instant Pot and if they don’t fit properly, then take a little bit more off.
  • Place a cup of water (250ml) over the asparagus and place the lid on the Instant Pot. Set the valve to sealing and cook on manual for 2 minutes.
  • Use QPR (quick pressure release) to manually release pressure.
  • Drain the asparagus and place back in the Instant Pot inner pot on the keep warm function.
  • Add the garlic and the coconut butter along with salt and pepper.
  • Allow for the butter to melt and toss the asparagus in the garlic butter using a pair of tongs.
  • Serve with a sprinkling of grated mozzarella cheese.


The amount of asparagus we used was 232g after we had removed the packaging and trimmed the tails. We used a healthy combo of coconut butter and garlic.
You could of course use any butter you like. Even though we finished the Instant Pot Asparagus with garlic butter you can of course remove it and just salt and pepper it.
