50 Must-Try Family Friendly Instant Pot and Air Fryer Recipes

Instant pots and air fryers have taken the culinary world by storm in recent years, and for good reason. An Instant Pot, or pressure cooker, uses steam pressure to cook food very quickly. That tender shredded chicken that you leave in the slow cooker all day? You’ll get the same result in just 20 minutes with an Instant Pot. Pressure cooking also preserves 90-95% of food’s nutrients — that’s higher than boiling, roasting and steaming! An added bonus is the pressure cooker’s ability to reduce physic acid and lectins in grains and beans, which makes them much easier to digest. This phenomenon was actually discussed in the latest Goop podcast (one of our favs!) if you want to hear more.

Moving on to air fryers. Well, there’s not much to say about an air fryer! What’s not to love? It turns your favorite deep-fried delicacies into healthier indulgences. It’s all the yum without the grease and fat. Sign us up!
