  • Peel and dice the rutabaga.
  • Place a cup of water in the bottom of your Instant Pot. Add the steamer shelf (trivet), then the steamer basket and then place your diced rutabaga into the basket.
  • Season the rutabaga with salt and pepper.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and then cook for 4 minutes on manual.
  • When the Instant Pot beeps manually release pressure.


We originally cooked our rutabaga in the Instant Pot for 3 minutes and found that it wasn’t quite soft enough (think hard carrots) so the next time we did it, we cooked them for 4 minutes and it was perfect.
When prepping your rutabaga make sure that you have a sharp knife. We recommend a good knife sharpener for this. Then chop off the root, peel the rutabaga and then chop it into chunks.
