Instant Pot Side Dish Recipes
Recently I’ve been making A LOT of Instant Pot side dishes…I just can’t stop.
I have been trying to make Instant Pot versions of all of our favorite side dishes, just because I love using my Instant Pot (I recently bought a second one!), and I find myself often needing more oven or stove space than what is available when cooking…and the Instant Pot is the perfect solution.
This time of year, we have several holiday celebrations that typically are known for having great side dishes, so we thought that we’d share some of the best Instant Pot side dish recipes out there.
There’s very little you can’t do with the Instant Pot – and side dishes are no exception!
In this collection, you will find lots of great Instant Pot side dish recipes to make. Some are more traditional – like potatoes – while others are a little more unique.
We hope that this will help you find even more ways to use your Instant Pot in helpful and creative ways!

What Instant Pot is Best?
There are so many Instant Pot models out there – it can be a little overwhelming.
The first Instant Pot I got was the DUO 60 6 quart, and it’s worked wonderfully for me over the years. I think that both the 6 and 8 quart are excellent options for beginners and advanced users.
I recently got the Ultra 8 quart, and I’ve been really liking it. It’s got a few more bells and whistles, but when it comes down to it – they both cook about the same!
For side dishes, you may even want to consider the Instant Pot Mini. It’s a smaller Instant Pot that is perfect for smaller portions.
