Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 Medium Broccoli
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Chop your broccoli into florets and place it on the steamer basket on top of the steamer shelf (trivet).
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour ½ a cup of water over the broccoli or use vegetable stock.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot and set the valve to sealing and press steam for 2 minutes
  • Use quick pressure release (QPR) to quickly release pressure.
  • Serve immediately before it has chance to get cold.


See my guide above for cooking times based on individual taste. Though 2 minutes in my opinion is perfect for steamed broccoli in the Instant Pot. A good tip is to add an extra minute and do 3 minutes for a broccoli soup.
I use ½ a cup of liquid in this Instant Pot broccoli recipe as it then takes less time to go to pressure and means that your broccoli will not come out like mush, which can happen if it takes too long to go to pressure.
