I’ve been hearing about the Instant Pot for several months, and although I’m willing to try new things and be a (fairly) early adopter, I’m not one to jump on fads. When I first heard about it, I thought it was going to be another fad/trend like the magic bullet or the dancing the Dougie. But I continued to hear about it – and since I’ve long been a pressure cooker cooker I decided I wanted to try the Instant Pot. And boy am I glad that I have!
My ONLY issue is finding recipes – or should I say ‘healthy’ recipes that suit the heart healthy/diabetic person. I can find plenty of meat, Keto and vegetarian recipes, but many are high in fat or sugar. I’ve also become frustrated with many of the sites because there are SO MANY ads that pop up all the time… and mailing list requests, and other pop-ups that seem to get past my pop up checker. I might have to explore this need and see if I can help fellow cooks resolve this issue.
Today, I’ll start with a nice and simple recommendation – fried rice. Please check this blog for more information about Instant Pot cooking and for the fried rice recipe, which has the following ingredients:
- 2 cups white rice prepared and cooled
- 1 T olive oil
- 1 small onion diced
- 1 T garlic minced
- 1 1/2 cups peas and corn frozen
- 3 T soy sauce*
- 3 large eggs
*My only changes would be to change to brown rice and to substitute the soy sauce for a product such as Naked Coconut Soy Sauce Substitute, to reduce the amount of salt in the recipe (they claim 65% less sodium than regular soy sauce).
