The Essential Instant Pot Pantry Shopping List
We try to keep a full pantry stocked with nonperishable items that we can easily turn into healthy and satisfying meals.
To help you make sure your pantry is stocked, I put together a list of basic pantry and freezer items that I like to have on hand for our family’s meals. It’s not an all-inclusive list, but it covers the essentials.
This healthy grain recipe couldn’t be easier to whip up. Israeli couscous gets plenty of flavor from warming spices like turmeric and cumin. Frozen veggies up the nutrition content in this easy Instant Pot pantry dish.
This spicy soup is a stocked pantry’s dream dish. Salsa, diced tomatoes, broth, and chicken stock are the foundation of this flavorful dump-and-go dinner. Add chicken breasts, thawed or frozen, and you have a healthy and filling Instant Pot meal.
If you have a stock of potatoes on hand, this creamy and filling soup is not far away. With some chicken stock, cheese and a bit of crispy bacon on top, you’ll have a hearty Instant Pot soup in no time.
If you have boneless, skinless chicken thighs on hand, chances are you have everything to make this Middle Eastern-spiced dish. Plenty of dried spices and onion bring serious flavor in this easy Instant Pot meal.
If you have staples like soy sauce and cornstarch in your pantry, you can make this easy dump-and-go dinner any night of the week. Tender chicken and crunchy cashews are always a winning combination. (It's also page 193 in my Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook.)
