The Instant Pot makes autumn meals easy! I’m sharing 10 healthy fall Instant Pot recipes that are comforting, nutritious, and delicious!
I got an Instant Pot five years ago and felt like I was one of the last people to jump on the Instant Pot trend. I was intimidated by it, and didn’t want yet another giant kitchen gadget that wasn’t worth storing in our tiny San Diego kitchen.
This little culinary wonder has changed my life. (And don’t be afraid — the lid locks into place before you can use it.) I’ll use the Instant Pot frequently throughout the week, and when fall hits, I use it even more often for comforting soups, chilis, and even pasta recipes. If you’re looking for Instant Pot recipe inspiration, here are some healthy dinner options!
