  • Peel and dice your carrots.
  • Place them into your Instant Pot inner pot with 250ml of vegetable stock. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot pressure cooker. Set the lid to sealing and cook for 3 minutes on the steam setting.
  • Use QPR (quick pressure release) when finishing the cooking process.


We buy our carrots by the kilo from the supermarket. It gives us a big bag of them that we can use for whatever pressure cooker recipes that we have planned. You could cook more (or less) carrots and pressure cook them for the same time and to get the same results.
1 Kilo of carrots = 2.2 pounds.
If you want to use your instant pot carrots for soup or for mash then we recommend natural pressure release (NPR). But if you want them just soft then we recommend quick pressure release (QPR).
I cooked them for 5 minutes but did chunky chopped carrots. But if you wanted them thinner and still at the same softness then I would recommend 3 minutes on QPR. To make a vegetable stock I sprinkle a vegetable OXO cube into 250ml (just over 1 cup) of boiling water. Then give it a mix and you’re ready to go.
We used a Julienne Peeler in this recipe to make it easier to make. I recommend you check out our Instant Pot Accessories to see what accessories you need.
