  • 1 Broccoli head
  • 1 cup Water
  • Salt to taste (optional)
  • Black Pepper to taste (optional)


  • Wash the broccoli and cut it into equal large size florets.
  • Add water to the instant pot insert. Place the steamer basket in the instant pot insert. Spread the broccoli florets on the steamer basket.
  • Start the instant pot and set it on manual or pressure cook mode for 0 minutes on high pressure with vent in sealing position. (Update: Many readers enjoy crunchier broccoli, for which 0 minutes at low pressure works great)
  • When the instant pot beeps, quick release the pressure manually. Remove the steamer basket carefully as it is hot.
  • You can place this basket under cold water for a minute to stop the cooking (optional) or just eat the broccoli right away.
  • Season with salt, pepper and enjoy.
