Lemon Herb Instant Pot Green Beans
This is the easiest way to make perfect Instant Pot Green Beans every time - they're tender-crisp, seasoned with lemon, garlic and herbs.
Servings: 4 servings
- 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!
