I love simple and easy dinners. Often, I skip the side dishes altogether and throw together a one-pot family favorite. Sometimes, however, we just need a little more food. I have five kids, and they like to eat! I’ve learned to rely on my Instant Pot for quick and easy sides to keep my kiddos full (and sometimes get some good leftovers for lunch the next day). These Instant Pot Side Dishes are quick and fairly inexpensive additions to dinner.
It really takes just a few minutes to assemble these side dishes in the Instant Pot, and then I let the pressure cooker do the work while I’m preparing the rest of our dinner. It’s a win-win!
Below is a list of some of my favorite quick & healthy side dish recipes. I listed the recipes that have saved me the most time in the kitchen, and I keep this list handy to use frequently!
