Perfect + Tender Instant Pot Broccoli
Instant Pot broccoli is ready in under 10 minutes, and is perfectly tender, but still with a bit of chew to it. A great way to get broccoli steamed quickly, without the need to babysit a pot of water on the stove.
- 2 crowns broccoli (cut into 1.5- 2 inch florets)
- 1 cup water (1.5 cups for 8 quart Instant Pots)
- 1 lemon
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
Place 1 cup of water into the stainless steel insert of your Instant Pot (1.5 cups for 8 quart Instant Pots).
Place trivet on top of the water, and place a steaming basket (if you have one), on the trivet. Place broccoli into the steamer basket
Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the steam release handle to the 'sealing' position, and select 'pressure cook' (or 'manual' for older models) for 0 minutes.
Once pot beeps, immediately release the pressure by switching the steam release handle to the 'venting' position.
Remove steamer basket containing broccoli with oven mitts, squeeze lemon juice over top and serve with fresh parmesan cheese.
*serving size is an estimate
After cooking through, broccoli may be stored in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
