  • 3/4 cup water
  • 8 cups brussels sprouts sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt & pepper
  • 1 pinch chili flakes
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated


  • Add the 3/4 cup of water to the bottom of Instant Pot and then place trivet inside the inner pot.
  • Add brussels sprouts, then drizzle with olive oil & lemon juice, sprinkling garlic, salt & pepper and chili flakes overtop of brussels sprouts as well. Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal.
  • Press the pressure cook button and set to low, then cook for 1 minute. The Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure, then notify you it's done by beeping.
  • Press the Cancel button then do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Carefully remove brussels sprouts from Instant Pot and serve on a large platter, gently tossing with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy!
