Post series on The One, my list of 100 essentials for living simply and living small. #simplicity #100essentials
The kitchen is a tough area to minimize, at least for me. That said, I would never voluntarily give up my InstaPot. It can (and often does) replace many of my pots, pans, and specialty items. It is my pressure cooker, my slow cooker, my rice maker, cake pan, stock pot, and so much more.
My favorite things to make in the IP are chicken (and then turning the broth into stock — Yum and so good for you), roast (for roast beef and also for beef stew, beef stock), beans (from bag to done in less than an hour), and rice (again, from bag to done in about 30 minutes). I tend not to make super complicated recipes, but I tend to not do that for any reason.
