SMART COOKER (INSTANT POT) ARTICHOKE
๐ŸŒ€ Cooked in @mychefiq 6Q Smart Cooker
Trim artichoke stem (and petal tips if needed). Cut off the top inch or so of the artichoke and rinse to remove any dirt between the petals. Place Artichoke on trivet or in steamer basket face up, squeeze juice of 1 lemon into the crevices (*optional), add lemon halves to pot with 1 cup water.

๐Ÿต๏ธ SMART COOKER (INSTANT POT) WHOLE SQUASH
๐ŸŒ€ Cooked in @mychefiq 6Q Smart Cooker

1c water in inner pot + trivet
Puncture squash all around
High Pressure + Natural Release
(I like it to still be firm so I use the lesser times)
1lb = 8-10min
2lb = 15-20min
3lb = 22-25min
4lb = 28-32min

It will be ๐Ÿ”ฅ SUPER HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ when it comes out… Use a towel or mitts and cut open to cool. Once cool enough to handle, scoop out the seeds with a spoon and enjoy.

* Delicata, Honeynut, Red Kuri and Sweet Dumpling Squash can be enjoyed skin on. They take less time to cook sometimes too.

* Small / young Butternut or Kabocha Squash skin can be eaten but may be tougher.

* Large Squash especially including thick skin varieties like Acorn and Spaghetti Squash are not intended to eat the skins.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl with a fork or small spatula. Lightly spray your baking sheet or lay down some parchment paper and turn your dough out onto the tray.
