  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 lb green beans
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme finely chopped


  • Add the 3/4 cup of water to the bottom of Instant Pot and then place trivet inside the inner pot.
  • Add green beans, then drizzle with olive oil & lemon juice, sprinkling garlic, lemon zest, salt & pepper overtop of beans 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 green beans from Instant Pot and serve on a large platter, gently tossing with fresh rosemary and thyme. Serve and enjoy!
