So far I have only cooked main dishes or meats in my Instant Pot. I know, I need to branch out. But honestly, we tried rice and it just didn’t work, so I make all of our sides in regular pots…for now. I have been browsing the internet and found some delicious side dishes that I can’t wait to try, so of course I had to share them with you.

You can make an entire meal in your Instant Pot, including side dishes. Here are some delicious ones to try with your next meal! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com
