  • In a small bowl, melt butter in the microwave, about 1 minute. 
  • Once butter is melted, mix in Italian seasining, minced garlic, garlic pepper and salt.  Stir until well combined. Set aside.  Add water to the bottom of your Instant Pot. 
  • Place carrots and above mixture in either a 7 inch round Instant Pot pan or tin foil basket.  Place pan or tin foil basket on a trivet and lower into the Instant Pot. 
  • Secure the lid the Instant Pot.  Select the ‘Pressure Cook’ function on high and cook for 4-5 minutes depending on how ‘snappy’ you would like your carrots.  If you would like yours more soft, I would recommend cooking for 7-8 minutes instead.
  • Once the timer beeps, quick release all pressure.  Carefully remove the lid. 
  • Carefully lift the trivet from the Instant Pot and transfer the carrots and mixture to a serving bowl.  
  • You can also add the carrots, garlic, Parmesan cheese, Alouette cheese and some salt to a Ziplock bag and shake well to mix all ingredients and cover the carrots well.  
  • Top with any additional Parmesan cheese and parsley. 
  • Serve and enjoy!



  1. When making these Instant Pot carrots, you can either make them in a 7 inch form pan or you can create a makeshift bowl out of tin foil.  I personally used tin foil for this recipe.  When doing so, I like to double up with two layers to ensure it’s sturdy.  Cut two large pieces and lay them on top of one another.  Fold up the sides tall enough to ensure it completely covers both the carrots and the garlic butter mixture noted in the recipe.  
  2. As for cook times, I cooked these Instant Pot carrots for 5 minutes, but my family likes them a bit more ‘snappy’. If you would like yours more soft, I would recommend cooking for 7-8 minutes instead.
