Brussels Sprouts Instant Pot Side Dish

As a kid, I never liked Brussels Sprouts, but now as an adult I absolutely love them. My favorite is to roast them, but sometimes I need a different quick and easy option.

I often use my Instant Pot to save time when cooking the main dish, but it also works well to cook a side dish.

Sauteing Brussels sprouts for a few minutes before pressure cooking gives them great flavor like when I make them on the stove, but without the need to stand there with the skillet.

There are so many different ways to enjoy Brussels sprouts, which is why I love having a basic recipe to work with like this one. It’s easy to tweak seasonings and flavor.

Instant Pot Brussels Sprouts Ingredients

  • 2-3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 pound Brussels Sprouts
  • ½ cup vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • 2 TBS honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Yields: 2-3 servings (as a side dish)

How to Cook Brussels Sprouts in an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker

Secure the lid on the Instant Pot and set on manual high pressure for 3 minutes.

While the Brussels sprouts cook, chop almonds.

Once time is up, do a Quick Pressure Release.

Serve the cooked Brussels sprouts in a large bowl, sprinkle with chopped almonds, and drizzle with honey.

Serving Suggestions:

You can serve Brussels sprouts along side almost any dinner recipe, such as our Honey Garlic Chicken.

I love bacon with my Brussels sprouts. Add a cup or more of cooked bacon pieces before serving.

If you don’t like almonds, you can choose to leave them out, but they add a nice crunch texture to the dish.
