Instant Pot Zero Minute Vegetables (video)
Steaming vegetables in the Instant Pot is so easy and some vegetables only require a ZERO minute pressure cooking time! Some great zero minute vegetables to steam in the Instant Pot are: cauliflower florets, broccoli florets, frozen corn, asparagus, zucchini slices and green beans. Are there any other zero minute vegetables that I missed? Leave me a comment if you know of one!
How to steam vegetables in the Instant Pot
- Add 1.5 cups of water into the Instant Pot liner. I use water straight out of the tap. It isn’t cold and it isn’t hot.
- Place your steamer basket into the pot and then add vegetables into the basket. I like to use this silicone steamer basket*. It fits perfectly into a 6 or 8 quart Instant Pot.
- Lock the lid into place and make sure the valve is set to sealing.
- Set the manual/pressure cook button to 0 minutes by using the – (minus) button to decrease the time down to zero. The pot will take up to 10 minutes to come to pressure. Then the timer will beep indicating the “time” is up.
- When the timer beeps move the valve to venting. Remove the lid. Your vegetables should be ready to go!
What should I serve on my steamed vegetables?
I like to serve with steamed vegetables with a little butter, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Some other good options are:
- Fresh herbs
- Sautéed Garlic
- Olive oil
- Soy sauce or tamari
- Cheese sauce or grated cheddar
- Pesto sauce
- Parmesan cheese
- Salad dressings
- Spike Seasoning

What Pressure Cooker Did You Use?
I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.
