I am going to LOVE this thing come summer.

Iím making potato salad.

Peel and cut potatoes. Put in pot with one cup water, place eggs on top.

5 min on high pressure, quick release.

Eggs are sitting it water cooking right now, so hopefully they are firm enough. Potatoes are perfect.

I do not have a steamer rack. I just used the trivet the IP came with. Some potato fell through, but seems fine.

No steamed up kitchen. No pouring of boiling water if you have an actual steamer...which I plan to get.

Hey SL - you can crack your eggs, put them raw in a safe dish and put that on top of yer taters

then you have an "egg loaf" that you just chop up - no peeling - even though it's usually really easy with the IP.

Made spaghetti squash tonight, which I then tossed with sautťed tomatoes and mushrooms, and sprinkled with some parmiagano reggiano.  Delish, and the squash came out perfect. Sometimes when I oven roast it is comes out a bit undercooked.

I considered trying that. Happy with how it turned out so will probably stick with this way.

I made stir fry beef and broccoli and it was really good and I wouldn't normally make it because the beef always comes out tough. So a win for the instant pot. The only thing I'd do differently is add the broccoli and then add the cornstarch to thicken. I got it thickened, but then it got watery after adding the broccoli. I used low sodium soy sauce and it actually could have used a bit of salt. I used "stir fry" beef from the store, so it was already cut up. Easy-peasy. Used my rice cooker to make rice and microwaved frozen broccoli. So not one-pot, but the beef came out perfect.

Now I want beef and broccoli...but that one has too much sugar for my nutrition plan.  Might have to try this one...

Had some chili lime chicken Iíd made, with some peach salsa as well on the making of it.  I decided I wanted hot food, so used it to whip up a chicken chili.  Iíve used a diced onion, 2 large garlic cloves, drained petite diced tomatoes, no salt added, a can of white beans, about 2t tsp ancho chili powder, some cumin, ground oregano, Goya seasoning, 1/2 cup uncooked white rice, and 2 cans water(14 oz can from the tomatoes).

I decided to do manual for 3 minutes, and NPR, so the rice cooks as it releases naturally.  All of these ingredients are 0 points on the new WW Freestyle, except for the rice and a dab of EVOO I used.  1/2 c cooked rice is 3 points.  Iíll have to see how many servings this yields, but probably about 2 points for a serving.  I might add some sweet corn, and spinach, also zero points.

Itís yummy!  I had cilantro, and we put some on top.  I did add some frozen corn and chopped spinach, doing a high pressure for 0.  There was a bit of sticking after that, but not scorched.  Iíd just add those with everything else next time, unless I had fresh spinach.  Dh just had a second bowl.
