Must-Make Recipes for Your Instant Pot

The Instant Pot has been a real game changer for at-home chefs with little time to spare. If you’re constantly on the lookout for new ways to use your Instant Pot, try these comfort food recipes.

Instant Pot Broccoli and Cheese Soup [Bless This Mess]
Everyone knows that the best way to get a picky diner to eat their veggies is to smother anything green with tons of cheese. This broccoli and cheese soup draws on this bit of time-tested wisdom. Hidden inside a creamy blend of half and half, gooey cheddar cheese, and chicken stock, four cups of broccoli and an additional cup of carrots bring the healthy nutrients.

Instant Pot Cheesecake [My Baking Addiction]
If you’re not already whipping up desserts in your Instant Pot, then you’re missing out on an entire world of fast-cooked fare. Break into the world of quick-baking sweets with this cheesecake recipe. The recipe instructs you on how to build the cheesecake (a pretty conventional approach) and fashion a “foil sling” that allows you to bake it in the Instant pot in a mere 35 minutes.

Instant Pot Lasagna [Campbell’s Kitchen]
Lasagna is a beloved dinner staple, but the conventional version can be pretty labor-intensive. This Instant Pot version only takes about five minutes to prep. Instead of creating careful layers of noodles, sauce, and beef, you break up the lasagna noodles and toss everything in together (after browning the meat). Then you simply set the Instant Pot for five minutes and wait for it to work its magic.
