This stew is hearty and healthy. Perfect for chilly evenings when you want something satisfying, but don't have time (or energy!) to spare.   

Cauliflower Potato Soup

This creamy, simple, and hearty soup will warm you up and keep you coming back for more! If you skip the bacon, it’s vegetarian.

Potato Tacos

Quick Cooker Shrimp & Grits

When made in a pressure cooker, this classic Southern dish is easy enough for a busy weeknight meal—with an added bonus of fewer pots and pans to clean.

Chicken Satay

This easy, family-friendly dinner is packed with flavor, especially when served with the sweet-and-tangy peanut sauce. Also great as an appetizer.

White Pizza

Our white pizza is anything but boring. We’ve added a bit of sun-dried tomatoes for an extra flavor boost. Baking on a stone ensures a crispy, delicious crust.

Chili Lime Pork

This one-pot meal is all about big flavors. The pork is seasoned with a Latin-inspired rub that brings bright lime flavor and deep chili spice.

Stovetop Mac & Cheese

This is mac & cheese with hotdogs and peas for grownups. Hotdogs are upgraded to andouille sausages and Parmesan cheese makes an entrance. The peas stay.

Ginger and lime juice add just the right amount of tanginess to our pressure cooker version of tom kha gai which is a traditional Thai coconut chicken soup.

This recipe combines the flavors of the classic Caprese salad of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and balsamic vinegar with fried chicken and tortellini pasta.

This salad is the perfect combination of fresh, bright flavors and comforting crunch. It combines sweet grapes, creamy honey mustard dressing, with crispy air-fried chicken.

Crispy Air Fryer Cod

This recipe is a delicious place to start if you've decided to eat more fish. Cod has a mild flavor but is still full of healthy omega-3.

Cheddar & Chive Bubble Waffle BLT

This fun spin on a classic bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich uses a savory bubble waffle instead of bread.

Cuban Sandwich

This recipe is a fresh take on a classic Cuban sandwich. Grilling the citrus for the marinade adds deep, caramelized flavor that makes the pork taste like it was cooked over an open flame.

Quick Cooker Mediterranean Chicken & Rice Bowls

(3)

Using a pressure cooker to make these rice bowls means that your meal comes together with only a little hands-on time, but still delivers fantastic Mediterranean flavor.

Broccoli Crust Pizza
