Steamed veggies are easily my favorite side to add to a nice chicken or steak dinner, especially when you use just the right mix of vegetables. That’s definitely the case with this easy instant pot steamed vegetables recipe. It’s made with a fantastic mix of non-starchy veggies like cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, Brussel sprouts, and asparagus. I love making this in advance and splitting it between lunch and dinner for the whole family.
