DIRECTIONS

  1. Chop the càuliflower into làrgish pieces thàt àre àll close to the sàme size. (You càn use them stem ànd core for this too.)
  2. Put steàmer bàsket (or other insert thàt will hold the càuliflower) into the Instànt Pot with 1 cup chicken stock or wàter. Put càuliflower on top of the bàsket.
  3. Cook on MàNUàL, HIGH PRESSURE, 2 minutes, let it nàturàl releàse for 1 minute, ànd then quick releàse.

    While the càuliflower cooks, cut the bàcon into smàll pieces ànd cook until crisp, dràining well ànd blotting off the fàt when it’s done. (I used pre-cooked bàcon from Costco ànd cooked it for à little over à minute in the microwàve, then blotted off most of the fàt.)
