If you follow me on ínstagram, then you know í am all about “Pízza Fríday”. ít ís somethíng í look forward to every week. And í may or may not celebrate pízza Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday on occasíon.

ín order to round out the week, í thought we should celebrate Pízza Monday too. Yes í know Mondays are all about startíng fresh wíth lots of greens, but sometímes a pízza ís just the tícket to kíck off the week. And thís pízza has caulíflower – so íts basícally líke eatíng a salad.

Caulíflower ís marínated before ít takes a roast ín the oven to crísp up and cook through. Then ít ís sauced up wíth spícy buffalo sauce – you can fínd my favoríte here. Most buffalo sauce ís vegan, but always be sure to check the íngredíents. Top everythíng off wíth red oníons, vegan ranch, green oníons and cílantro and you have a super tasty pízza that vegans and non-vegans wíll love!

Thís Vegan Roasted Caulíflower Buffalo Pízza ís the perfect balance of spícíness and creamíness wíth a níce crunch from the caulíflower.


  • 16 oz pre-made pízza dough
  • 1/2 head caulíflower cut ín bíte sízed píeces
  • 4 tsp olíve oíl
  • 1 tsp garlíc powder
  • 1 tsp chílí powder
  • 3/4 cup buffalo sauce separated
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/4 red oníon slíced
  • 1/4 cup vegan ranch
  • 2 green oníons díced
  • 2 tbsp cílantro díced

  1. One hour before you want to cook the pízza, place the dough on a flour-dusted countertop.
  2. Whíle dough ís comíng to room temperature, preheat oven to 425 degrees and líne a bakíng sheet wíth foíl.
  3. ín a large bowl combíne caulíflower, olíve oíl, garlíc powder, chílí powder, pepper and 1/4 cup of buffalo sauce. Stír to combíne. Spread evenly on bakíng sheet and cook for 20 mínutes, flíppíng halfway. Remove from oven and íncrease oven heat to 475 degrees. Place caulíflower back ín the bowl. Add remaíníng buffalo sauce and stír to combíne.
  4. Spray a 16" round bakíng sheet (or bakíng sheet of choíce) wíth non-stíck spray. Place dough on the sheet and stretch to desíred shape. Top dough wíth buffalo/caulíflower míxture and spread evenly. Top wíth red oníon and place ín the oven for 12-17 mínutes, or untíl crust ís brown and críspy.
  5. Remove from the oven and top wíth ranch, green oníon and cílantro. Slíce, serve and enjoy!

Instant Pot Orange Chicken with a sweet and sticky orange sauce and fluffy rice. This orange chicken recipe is easy to make and everything cooks at once in your Instant Pot - even 
For the Orange Chicken:
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup orange juice from 1 large orange
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs or tenders

For the Rice:
  • 1 cup long grain white rice such as jasmine or basmati rinsed and drained (see note)
  • 1 cup water
  • For the Cornstarch Slurry:
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Optional for Serving:
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • sesame seeds


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange zest, orange juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes (if using).
  2. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces.
  3. Pour the 1 tablespoon olive oil into the Instant Pot and turn on saute mode. Once the pot is hot, add the chicken and brown it for 4-5 minutes. The chicken will not brown too much in the Instant Pot, but this step adds flavor. Press Cancel to turn off the Instant Pot.
  4. Pour the orange sauce into the Instant Pot with the chicken. Stir and scrape up any bits that may be stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  5. For pot in pot cooking with rice, place a 2.5-inch tall trivet in the Instant Pot, over the chicken and sauce. Combine the rice and 1 cup water in a 7-inch oven-safe bowl and place it on top of the trivet. (Cook the rice separately according to package instructions if you do not have an oven safe pot that fits inside your instant pot.)
  6. Close the Instant Pot lid and turn the steam release valve to the sealing position.
  7. Use the Manual/Pressure Cook function and set the cook time to 4 minutes at high pressure. The Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to reach pressure and then the cook time will begin counting down.
  8. When the cook time ends, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes by leaving the Instant Pot alone. Then quick release any remaining pressure by carefully turning the steam release valve to the venting position. Press Cancel to turn off the Instant Pot warm setting.
  9. When the pin drops down, open the Instant Pot lid. If cooking rice pot in pot, use oven mitts to carefully remove the bowl with the rice and set aside. Remove the trivet.
  10. In a small bowl, stir together the 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Pour this cornstarch slurry into the Instant Pot and turn on saute mode. Stir until the sauce thickens. This should only take a minute or two. As soon as the sauce has thickened press Cancel to turn off the Instant Pot and then remove the inner pot from the base to stop the cooking process.
  11. Serve the chicken and sauce over the rice, with chopped green onions and sesame seeds as garnish, if desired.

If you do not want to cook rice in the pot with the chicken, skip the ingredients and steps for the rice.
Do not substitute brown rice or any other kind of rice. Be sure to use long grain white rice because the cooking time will be different for other types of rice.
See notes in the post above about which trivet and oven-safe bowl I use and recommend.

These Honey Garlic Instant Pot Chicken Breasts are always moist, tender and flavorful! These pressure cooker chicken breasts cook perfectly in minutes from fresh or frozen. Serve your honey garlic instant pot chicken breast with rice or quinoa and veggies for a complete, quick dinner!

  • 1/3 cup water or vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  1. Combine water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic and pepper in Instant Pot. Stir.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to the Instant Pot.
  3. Seal the lid and turn the steam valve to the sealing position.
  4. Set Instant Pot to pressure cook/manual, high pressure. Set the cook time according to the size of your chicken breasts. For fresh: 8 minutes for small (7-8 ounce) chicken breasts, 10 minutes for medium (10 ounce) chicken breasts, or 11 minutes for large (12 ounce) chicken breasts.
  5. For frozen chicken breasts, add 3 minutes to the cooking times listed in step 4, and pressure cook (manual) at high pressure. Be sure that your chicken breasts are not stuck together as that will increase the pressure cook time.
  6. The Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure and then will start counting down the cook time. When it beeps to let you know the cook time has finished, carefully quick release the pressure by using the handle of a long spoon to turn the steam valve to venting. (If your chicken breasts were frozen, do a 10 minute natural release instead of a quick release. Just leave the Instant Pot alone for 10 minutes before turning the steam valve to the venting position.)
  7. Wait for the steam to escape and the pin to drop down. Then, carefully remove the lid.
  8. Use an instant read thermometer to test the internal temperature of the chicken. It should be at least 165 degrees F. If the temperature is lower, finish cooking the chicken using the Instant Pot's saute mode.
  9. Remove chicken to a clean plate or cutting board.
  10. In a small bowl, stir together the 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Turn the Instant Pot on saute mode and stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring, until the liquid has thickened, 2-3 minutes. Turn off Instant Pot and remove the inner pot to stop the cooking process.
  11. Slice the chicken and stir it back into the sauce in the pot. Serve with rice and vegetables, or as desired.

To Cook in a Slow Cooker:

  • Stir together water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic and pepper in slow cooker insert. Add the chicken.
  • Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 2 hours, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees F.
  • Remove chicken to a clean plate or cutting board. Turn slow cooker to high setting.
  • In a small bowl, stir together 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Stir this into the liquid in the slow cooker and cook on high until thickened, about 20 minutes.
  • Slice or shred the chicken and stir it into the sauce in the slow cooker. Serve with rice and vegetables, or as desired.

To Make as a Freezer Meal:
  • Add water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic, pepper and chicken to a heavy duty zip top freezer bag.
  • Freeze flat for up to 3 months.
  • When ready to cook, thaw in cool water just until sauce is thawed. Transfer to Instant Pot and cook as directed above.
