The Instant Pot is one of the most versatile tools in my kitchen. Though I primarily use it to create delicious soups, stews, and other main courses, the Instant pot is also handy for a myriad of side dishes. Everything from perfect jasmine rice to fresh veggies to beans are easy to prepare and require much less babysitting at the stove than traditional methods. Here is a list of more than 20 side dishes to match up with your meals. Enjoy!
