Instant Pot Whole Butternut Squash - make peeling easier!

Instant Pot Whole Butternut Squash - make peeling easier!

Do you hate peeling Butternut Squash? I do! I used to have to prepare myself for it. Clear the area. Breathe deeply. Hope for the best (like no trip to the hospital for stitches....).

What if I told you that pressure cooking it softens it making it super easy to peel?

The skin is so soft after pressure cooking that some people actually decide to not peel it at all.

So, do you want to know how to pressure cook a whole butternut squash to make it super easy to peel? It's extremely easy!

Ready for the method?

Instant Pot Prawn, Trout and Pea Risotto

Instant Pot Prawn, Trout and Pea Risotto

This Instant Pot Prawn, Trout and Pea Risotto is such a delicious dish. I found the Trout fillets in the reduced aisle at Tesco and just had to make something special with them.

I usually make a Prawn and Pea Risotto but the trout was a wonderful addition. You don't need to add it as it is a bit of a treat and adds to the cost of the dish but it works great!

Instant Pot Prawn, Trout and Pea Risotto


Don't worry, I'll post the Prawn and Pea Risotto recipe too. I make it for the little Tapita pretty much every week at the moment, she requests it! Although sometimes she does ask for Mushroom Risotto which is also delicious.

This is a delicious and indulgent yet comforting dish pressure cooked in next to no time. No stirring, no hanging around the hob, go put your feet up.

Airfryer Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables with Halloumi Cheese

Air Fryer Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables with Halloumi Cheese


I love my Air Fryer. I thought about buying one for ages and then finally in July 2017, I took the plunge when I saw it on offer on Amazon Prime Day. I have a Philips 9220/20 airfryer.

This Airfryer Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables with Halloumi Cheese is as delicious as it is easy. There is no need to preheat the airfryer so it's fairly quick.

For this particular dish I tend to slice the vegetables ahead of time and store them in the fridge so that they're ready when I am ready to cook them.

This is the first airfryer recipe that I put on the blog! The lovely Mike bought his air fryer on Prime Day this year and has already tried this airfryer recipe, in fact it was his first!! Mike got stuck in straight away. So many of us leave kitchen gadgets in the box for ages growing increasingly afraid of them but not Mike!

Make sure you join my Kitchen Gadgetry with Feisty Tapas Facebook group!

Fancy trying my Airfryer Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables with Halloumi Cheese? Here's the recipe.

Where to buy an Instant Pot in the UK, Europe and other 220~240 voltage countries

Where to buy an Instant Pot in the UK / 220 voltage and a few recipe ideas

Have you been waiting for the Instant Pot® to come back in stock? Well, it's back! You can order it from Amazon right now.

Depending on when you read this, delivery won't be straight away as the cookers need to arrive and be delivered to Amazon first. Right now it says you can order it now and it'll be in stock on 10th July 2018.

Its summer arrival is perfect as the Instant Pot doesn't release any heat into the kitchen. Above all with this heatwave we're having in the UK. Then come Autumn it will keep earning its keep.

At the time of writing this (July 2018) only the Instant Pot DUO 6 quart / 5.5 litre is available.

Where to buy

Amazon or the Instant Pot UK online store are always the main places. Sometimes Costco has them in stock but not at this time. Amazon has them ready to order right here.

If you don't see them show up on Amazon Germany, France, Italy or Spain, always check Amazon UK as the cookers are exactly the same and in fact they come with two detachable cables, one cable comes with the UK three pin plug and the other with the schuko two pin plug for use in many European countries. And, of course, Amazon UK ships to many countries.


Can I use it in my country?

If you live in a 220~240 voltage, this is the Instant Pot for you.

What about the plug?
