When cooking vegetable, fresh or frozen, it’s recommended to use steaming to preserve vitamins and minerals to the maximum. Steaming also retains the natural look of the vegetables, adding aesthetic value to your dish.
When steaming vegetables, you need at least one cup of water (250ml), an ovenproof or steel bowl on a trivet. Due to short pressure cooking time leaving the cooker naturally cooling down without using the steam release will add some extra cooking time to the food.
Please note that the cooking time is pressure cooking time on Instant Pot or other electric pressure cookers operating at the preset pressure level. Cooking times are approximate. Please use them as a guideline only.
The cooking time is for small or medium amount of food. For large amount, please add more water and increase the time by 20~40%.
