Leeky Lemon Broccoli


  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 4 slices leeks
  • 1 large head broccoli florets
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Add the ghee or olive oil to the Instant Pot, hit Sauté, and Adjust so it’s on the More or High setting.
  • Once it’s melted and bubbling (about 3 minutes), add the leeks and sauté for 10 minutes. They will unravel while being stirred. (NOTE: Don’t worry if some of the leeks look burnt—they taste even better with a bit of a char!)
  • Meanwhile, put the broccoli florets in a microwave-safe bowl, add about 1/4 inch of water, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 3–4 minutes, until tender (if frozen, microwave for 9–10 minutes). Drain.
  • Add the broccoli to the pot and stir. Squeeze the lemon juice all over everything. Hit Keep Warm/Cancel to turn the pot off.
  • Add the air fryer lid, hit Broil (400°F) for 10 minutes, and hit Start to begin. Allow it to roast, stirring midway through. If you want it roasted longer, air fry for longer.
  • Transfer the veggies to a serving dish and enjoy.
