Instant Pot Mushrooms. Make the most of delicious in season mushrooms by cooking them in the Instant Pot. Instant Pot Mushrooms take just 2 minutes and taste absolutely amazing.
After carrots, mushrooms for me are the go to cheap vegetable. The one anyone can afford to buy in order to add some of your 5 a day into your daily diet.
Growing up I always remember mushrooms as the fill vegetable. You got a chicken and vegetable pie in a restaurant and you could guarantee that mushrooms would be used to fill up the pie and to keep it low cost. The same could be said for a vegetable bake, a beef lasagne, a shepherd’s pie or as a sauce to go with your steak and chips.
Mushrooms of course come in many shapes and sizes and when you cook Instant Pot Mushrooms you can add any types you like. You don’t even need to slice them up if you don’t want to.
For example, when we made ours we bought a mixture of breakfast mushrooms and button mushrooms. We paid just 99 cents for our breakfast mushrooms and 85 cent for our button mushrooms and they were just asking to be cooked in the Instant Pot!
I always go hunting in the supermarket for discounted/clearance vegetables that I can cook and save that would normally end up in the bin.
Then we gave them a clean and placed them in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker with the standard cup of liquid.
Though instead of just adding a cup of water we used 1 cup of vegetable stock, as then it helps enhance the flavour for whatever type of Instant Pot Mushrooms you’re looking to cook.
Another great thing to cooking mushrooms in the Instant Pot, is that you don’t need to chop them up. They cook perfectly whole and can save you your usual prep time.
