Hello, my friends! Today’s post is a little different as I am sharing a Lifestyle post based on our newest kitchen gadget–the Instant Pot. This brand, from Canada, has taken the pressure cooker to a new level and people are going crazy over it!
While I made lots of use of a crock pot, I’ve never had or used a pressure cooker. My husband and I took the dive on purchasing the Instant Pot when Williams Sonoma had them on sale before Christmas. We are trying to cook and eat more healthily and this gadget gave us some incentive to try new recipes and ways of cooking.
The Story behind the Instant Pot
There is a great story behind the development of the Instant Pot. Two working dads from the high-tech field (one with two kids) who wanted to come up with a gadget to help families cook more healthy meals at home. So they wanted something that would cook quickly and easily. So they revamped the traditional pressure cooker, and the Instant Pot was born!
There are recipes in the thousands on Pinterest and even more all over the web, so it’s easy to find healthy recipes that are easy to prepare.
We bought the Instant Pot for Two cookbook and are enjoying the recipes. Our current favorite is Simple Seafood Bouillabaisse is loaded with seafood and contains very few carbs. It’s really good! We substituted some of the fish called for in the recipe based on wild fish that we had on hand and it was still very good! Healthy? Check. Tasty? Check, check.
This is another top-selling cookbook. Take a look here.
