Free Electric Pressure Cooker Recipe Booklet & App

,

Since electric pressure cookers are a relatively recent invention, recipes for this miracle appliance can be rather scarce. Chefs and authors are just beginning to develop and publish recipes that are tailor made for the awesome advantages of cooking with an electric pressure cooker.

To help with that matter, we have invited five pioneer chefs and authors who have created a wide variety of delicious recipes in various cuisines specifically designed for your Instant Pot.

We have compiled an iOS & Android App together with a recipe booklet.  It include works by:

  • Laura Pazzaglia is an undisputed expert on pressure cookers and pressure cooking.  You’ll enjoy her fresh perspective on European and American cuisines at www.HipPressureCooking.com.
  • Maomao Mom is a scientist at National Research Council Canada and a food lover. She has turned traditional Chinese recipes into step-by-step guides that may be reproduced by everyone. You can find a huge collection of recipes on her bilingual site at www.MaomaoMom.com.
  • Jill Nussinow, known as the “Vegie Queen”, specializes in vegetarian whole food meals.  She recently published a popular book “The New Fast Food”  which can be found at www.TheVeggieQueen.com.
  • Barbara Schieving loves both pressure cooking and baking. Her site www.PressureCookingToday.com has recipes for every meal of the day.
  • Chef AJ, the author of a wonderful book “Unprocessed”, is a great educator of plant-based whole food. You can find more of her videos and recipes at www.EatUnprocessed.com.

We hope you enjoy the recipes and encourage you to visit their websites to explore a growing number of new recipes.

The Instant Pot® recipe app is available for both Apple and Android mobile devices. Download it from http://instantpot.com/app or scan the QR code from your mobile devices.

    Please consider posting the recipe book to iTunes Book store. iBook Author is a free program for publishing but would probably require some degree of reformatting from the current form.

    I would appreciate being able to download the recipe book for either my Apple iBook app or Kindle. I am starting to use my iPad more and more in the kitchen.

    Thanks!

      Hello Pat,

      We do notice that people take iPad/tablet to kitchen instead of their desktop/laptop. We’ll investigate how this can be done. Thanks for the suggestion.

        I saved the PDF file on my desktop. I opened the cookbook on my iPad and discovered I could save it to my iBooks library. Others, more clued into the ways of Apple and iPads may already know this was possible, but I did not.

        So I learned a new thing today

          Hi Pat,

          We looked into converting the recipe book to iBook and Kindle formats. It’s not possible with the current source format. The best approach is to import the PDF into iBook as you described.

    It appears the New England Clam Chowder recipe needs editing. The instructions do not say when to add the milk and cream. I followed the link to the author’s website (and her original recipe), so I’m assuming that in that last step, instead of “add butter, sprinkle flour” (which was already done in the roux), we should add the milk, cream and clams?

    We’re in the midst of 100+ Arizona heat, so for now I’ll dream of making this in the cool winter days to come. 🙂 Thank you for the recipe booklet! Keep those recipes coming!!!

      P.S. The InstantPot is fabulous for our hot climate. It’s a great way to make a meal without heating up the oven/stove and overworking the air conditioner. A cool, wet towel on the lid before quick release minimizes the steam and keeps the kitchen even cooler.

    Please consider publishing the Chinese recipes in English too! They look delicious.
    Maybe our Chinese cousins would like the English recipes in Chinese also?

        Thanks for that link. I came to the website to look for the Chinese recipes in English, too. Though I’m not of Asian heritage, I love many Asian foods. I live in near a major metropolitan city on the US west coast, so I can usually find just about any Asian ingredient I need at one of the city supermarkets that caters to Asian-American communities (or else I order online).

    Why is pasta missing in the Cookbook cooking timetables? I’ve never owned pressure cooker before, but wouldn’t these high-pressure cookers be great for unattended, less-mess, boiling of spaghetti — ready to quickly serve and eat once I get home from work and gotta rush out again, for example? Also, with the enviable new DUO model, would low- or high-pressure setting be recommended(or not) for cooking pasta? Thanks!

        I should get my Instant Pot tomorrow. I just read all these posts from people saying we can’t even cook rice, pasta, and NO GREASE? Does the no grease mean added grease and NOT the grease that will come from meats and roasts and Chicken? I sure hope not, or I’ll have to deny the pot at the door. I really wanted a cookbook on how to make things, some people are saying a book came with theirs. I bought the latest 5 qt. model and I hope it comes with something to get me started.. Please e-mail me about this soon ok? I can’t wait to cook with this machine.
        Thank you so much.

          Hi Mary,

          You can cook rice, pasta and grease in Instant Pot. You can basically cook anything in Instant Pot. The key point is to follow a recipe, so as to get the ingredients right, e.g. the water:rice ratio being right. It comes with a recipe booklet to get started and we have a ton of recipes on our website. Hope this helps.

      Looking forward now to the new InstantPot iPot model with built-in bluetooth wireless, hahaha!
      Hmmm, need a smartphone app to hold all these recipes here — to help in my meal & portion planning, nutrient intake & calorie counting, grocery deal & aisle shopping, tracking and remembering my favourite iPot settings & cooking tricks, and then also sync together with other appliances to serve entire meal all at once… Just suggesting a few potential fun cooking capabilities to explore.
      Can’t wait to buy iPot and starting with an app friendly Cookbook 🙂

        Hello John,

        Thanks for suggestion the features for the app. We’ll try to take advantage of the app and make cooking more convenient. The cooking time table will be in the app. After looking up the food material, you can program the cooker with one press.

    I’d like to cook a whole ham for Christmas dinner because my wife has to work. But I can’t find any instructions on pressure cooking a whole ham (4-5lbs) in the instant Pot. I just bought the Instant Pot and have no idea what I’m doing yet. This will be my first meal using it.

    Where can I find a chart that will tell me how long to pressure cook basic things like potatoes, brown rice, and different kinds of beans in the Instant Pot? So far I have had to look at recipes on line and guess. Thanks!

    Has anyone else tried the cauliflower citrus salad on page 13? If so, how did it turn out? I made it the other day and my fresh veggies were way over cooked and mushy. The 7 minutes of cook time is definitely a TYPO. They should not be cooked for >3minutes. Next time will only cook for 2 minutes.
