Instant Pot Recipe: Shakshuka with Spinach and Tips

My friend and colleague, Elizabeth Shaw, registered dietitian and author of Instant Pot Cookbook for Dummies will join me from her kitchen in San Diego to discuss the best tips on how to have the most delicious recipes made in the Instant Pot as well as tips on how to make cooking with an Instant Pot even easier to save you more time in the kitchen. Even if you don’t have an Instant Pot specifically, the book will show you how to make recipes in other slow cookers or pressure cookers.

I will also share with you one of my favorite recipes, Shakshuka with Spinach made in the Instant Pot.
