"It doesn't get any easier to make a quick weeknight meal than using the pressure cooker... it cooks itself while you get everything else ready! Make sure you adjust the cooking time based on the package instructions for the specific brand of whole wheat (or regular) macaroni you are using."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Add the whole wheat macaroni, water, butter, avocado oil, chicken bouillon powder, dried herbs, garlic powder, and onion powder to the Instant Pot.

Step 2

Stir well to combine and ensure the macaroni is evenly coated.

Step 3

Close the Instant Pot lid and set the valve to the sealing position.

Step 4

Cook the macaroni on high pressure for half of the regular stovetop cooking time indicated on the package. Whole wheat macaroni generally requires a slightly longer cooking time, so adjust accordingly.

Step 5

Once the cooking time is complete, perform a quick pressure release by carefully turning the valve to venting.

Step 6

When the pressure has fully released, carefully open the Instant Pot lid.

Step 7

Give the macaroni a good stir and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 8

Garnish with fresh chopped herbs.
