Items You May Need In The Kitchen

Perhaps one of the best reasons for cooking with vegetables is that it doesn’t require much in the kitchen. I’m sure you have most of these kitchen items. If you don’t, no worries because you can always make the most of what you have. If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, I’d recommend grabbing one. You will get tons of use out of it:

Quick Release or Natural Release

Most recipes will tell you whether or not to use a natural release or the quick release on your Instant Pot®. However, if it doesn’t, here is how you can know:

Natural Release: This type of release is for tougher cuts of meat, recipes with high starch like rice or grains, or recipes that require a lot of liquid. 

Quick Release: You will use the quick release for delicate cuts of meat, vegetables, seafood, chicken breasts, and steaming. 

If you are using the quick release on your Instant Pot®, you will want to place a towel over the valve and use a wooden spoon to manually turn the valve from seal to vent. The towel will help prevent you from getting steam in your face.

What can I serve with these Brussel Sprouts?

Don’t know what to serve with these Brussel sprouts? I’ll make it simple for you! I have a few recipes that go great with this recipe. Of course, you can always serve the Brussel sprouts on their own!

How can I store these after cooking them?

As with anything that you make food-wise, you have to store it properly. I would recommend storing these Brussel sprouts in an airtight container. Once they are secured, you can place them in the fridge for around 3-5 days.

Can I freeze them?

I wouldn’t recommend it. Fresh is always best, in my opinion, when it comes to cooked veggies and cheese. If it comes down to it, you can always try and freeze a small batch to see how it turns out. Make sure you place them in a freezable container to keep the bacteria out.

    Your recipe for Brussels sprouts looks absolutely delicious! My husband is a huge fan of them but me – not so much. I sometimes begrudgingly cook & eat Brussels sprouts for him. BUT! Making these with cheese & sour cream? Yes please! We’re definitely going to try this recipe!
