I am always interested in making my meals healthier so I thought it was about time I got around to telling you all about my favorite instant pot pumpkin recipes.
As we keep hearing there are so many benefits of cooking using an instant pot. It uses less energy versus oven cooking, cooks your food faster (a must for us busy Moms who never get a minute) and it is way healthier! Cooking pumpkin recipes this way helps maintain more nutrients and vitamins versus other cooking methods.
Here I plan to cover how to make my favorite pumpkin recipes involving bread, soup, pies and desserts. If it can be made using an instant pot it will be here!
