Instant Pot Steamed Green Beans

Steaming green beans or any vegetable is such an easy method of cooking in general, and making these Instant Pot Steamed Green Beans is a huge time savor (they only cook 1 minute!) and preparing them this way preserves the nutrients and color. Done perfectly every time! I’ve become a little obsessed with this amazing kitchen appliance, have you noticed? Well, I’m doing my best to eat healthy and not wait until January 1 to evaluate my food choices, and using the Instant Pot makes quick work of cooking healthy!  🙂

Place the washed green beans in the basket and set cooker to Manual high for 1 minute. Use the ‘quick release’ method to release the steam before the lid is removed. See tips page for release methods.
