These simple Instant Pot mushrooms are so delicious! Perfectly cooked in minutes, yum!
With your Instant Pot, fancy restaurant-quality mushrooms can be had in less then 15 minutes. Best of all, you don’t have to deal with oil splatters!
These mushrooms make an awesome topping over steak or grilled chicken, or a complimentary side dish. If you’re vegan, they are also luscious as a main dish over rice, couscous, quinoa or pasta. And so simple and easy to prepare thanks to your Instant Pot!
And, these Instant Pot Mushrooms are even healthier than traditional sauteed mushrooms, which usually call for much more oil or butter when sauteing – and then you have to contend with cleaning up those oily spatters that escape your frying pan. Once you try them this way, you’ll never go back to the old way (if you even attempted it) – they are always perfectly done!
Make your next barbeque special with these Instant Pot Mushrooms – even if you’re just grilling hamburgers, think of what some sauteed mushrooms will do for that cheeseburger – elevating it to gourmet grilling fare! These are so simple and easy, why not?
You can use those lovely white button mushrooms for this recipe, or up your game, especially if you are grilling a premium steak or doing a vegan meal, by using baby bellas (small portabella mushrooms) which have an even more earthy, meaty, savory flavor.
And did I mention how healthy these Instant Pot Mushrooms are, in addition to being decadently delicious? Mushrooms are low in calories, and contain 18 vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant phytonutrients, including vitamin D and four different B vitamins. They are high in potassium and selenium. Mushrooms may even benefit your cardiovascular and immune systems, as well as fight inflammation and cancer.
If you see mushrooms on sale, here’s a tip – buy a couple packages, make yourself a BIG batch of these Instant Pot Mushrooms, and freeze several meals worth in freezer bags or containers . They will keep in the freezer in peak condition for several months, so when you need them for next weekend’s grill fest, all you will need to do is thaw and heat gently. You can thank me later :)
Do you like what’s on my plate on the photo above? It’s a complete vegan dinner! Instant Pot mushrooms are served with roasted broccoli and Instant Pot mashed sweet potatoes! And broccoli can also be made in the Instant Pot if you’d like (check out my Instant Pot broccoli recipe). Soooo yummy! I often use mushrooms as my main dish when I need a break from eating meat :)
