These easy Instant Pot carrots are coated in a delicious honey butter glaze. Everyone at the table will want seconds! The best veggie side dish.
I love a good glazed carrot recipe. It occurred to me that making carrots in the Instant Pot is something I should try now that I’ve been converted into an IP lover. It’s not rocket science on the stove-top, but using an electric pressure cooker has its benefits, such as:
- It frees up counter space (e.g. if you’ve got company over or you’re making these for a holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas).
- It’s pretty hands-off once you’ve closed your IP’s lid, so you can do other things instead of babysitting them.
- You don’t need to worry about checking them to see if they’re done… you just do what your IP tells you to do. 😉
- It’s quick & easy.
How to cook carrots in an Instant Pot
Add chopped carrots (or you can just use baby cut carrots) to your Instant Pot along with 1 cup of water and cook for 2-3 minutes on high pressure.
I bought large carrots and cut them into fairly big pieces. I cooked them for 3 minutes and they ended up quite soft; just the way I like them.

This electric pressure cooker carrots recipe was a big hit in my house. I was barely able to photograph them without sneaking bites.
My husband seemed shocked at how tasty they were. Doesn’t he know ALL my recipes are tasty by now?! Geez. 😛
