This is a quick way to put a side of vegetables on the table together with a main dish and rice or noodles. I’ve used cauliflower as an example.


  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 cup (240 ml) water
  • <


  1. Cut your cauliflower into large, equal florets about 1½ inches (3.75 cm) in size. Arrange the florets in your steamer basket.
  2. Pour 1 cup water into the pot and nestle a steamer rack inside.
  3. Lock the lid. Select PRESSURE COOK/MANUAL and set to LOW for 0 minutes.
