You love to break out your Instant Pot when cooking meats, whole meals, and soups and stews. But, did you know that your Instant Pot can be used to prep a wide variety of foods, from eggs to beans and yogurt? Read on to discover a few things you may not have realized you could prep in your Instant Pot.

Hard-Boiling Eggs

One of the most versatile items you have in your fridge, eggs are easily hard boiled to perfection in your Instant Pot. Not to mention, your favorite cooking appliance can cook a large batch of them at once – meaning that you can have plenty on-hand for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between.

Hydrating Beans

In many cases, buying dried beans is way more cost-effective than the canned versions. But, who has time to soak beans before cooking? Well, you do, if you have an Instant Pot! Simply use the "Bean/Chili" function to cook any beans you like – like black beans for burritos or chickpeas for homemade hummus.

Making Yogurt

You might have noticed the “Yogurt” setting on your Instant Pot, but have you ever stopped to consider just how easy and cost-efficient making yogurt can be? Trim money from your grocery bill by using your Instant Pot to make your own Greek yogurt at home, and you’ll be all set to make a healthy breakfast.

Steaming Veggies

Vegetables are a cornerstone of many meals. Now, it’s even easier to make them in your Instant Pot. From carrots to cauliflower to squash, the steam setting is the way to go, if you want to soften veggies just in time for dinner. Just don’t forget to use the Quick Release valve so that veggies don’t get mushy.

As the saying goes, knowledge is power – and, at Westmount at Three Fountains Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, we couldn’t agree more! We hope that this blog has presented you with the valuable information that you were seeking out.
