    Add 3 tbsp unsalted butter (45g) in Instant Pot, and ensure the whole bottom is coated with butter.
    Add in minced onion, minced garlic, and a pinch of salt, then let them cook for 5 minutes to soften the onions (stir occasionally). Turn off the heat.

Recipe Notes:

1) Amount of Spinach: Adjust the amount of spinach according to your preference on how spinach-dense or creamy you want the dip to be.
2) Instant Pot Duo Crisp’s Saute Function: Press "Saute" button to "Saute Lo", then press "Start".
3) Substitute for Fresh Onion & Garlic: If you are tight on time, you can skip Step 1 and use ¼ tsp garlic powder and ¼ tsp onion powder instead in Step 2.
4) Reserve Some Cheese for Melting Step: If you are planning to melt some cheese on top, remember to save 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese for Step 4.
5) Cooking Time Adjustment for Bigger/Smaller Pan: Since we fully packed a 6x3 cake pan with spinach artichoke dip, we will need a slightly longer cooking time.
  • 7x3 Cake Pan: Pressure cook at High Pressure for 12 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release. 
  • 6oz Ramekins: Pressure cook at High Pressure 7 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release.
6) Toasting Baguette Slices with Air Fryer Function: It took 3 - 4 minutes on the trivet at 400°F to lightly toast baguette slices with Instant Pot Duo Crisp's airfryer function.

Wait until it says “HOT” on the screen (takes roughly 8 minutes).

First, add 3 tbsp unsalted butter (45g) in Instant Pot’s inner pot, and ensure the whole bottom is coated with butter.

Add minced onion, minced garlic, and a pinch of salt in Instant Pot, then let them cook for 5 minutes, and stir occasionally.

*Note: This softens the onion, and brings out the onion’s natural sweetness.

Then, you can turn off the heat.

*Note: If you are tight on time, you can skip this step and use ¼ tsp garlic powder and ¼ tsp onion powder instead in Step 2.

Make Spinach Artichoke Mixture


In a large mixing bowl, mix together 8oz (227g) soften cream cheese, chopped artichoke hearts, chopped spinach, ½ cup (96g) shredded Gruyere cheese, ½ cup (96g) shredded mozzarella cheese, ½ cup (96g) finely grated Parmesan cheese, and ½ tsp (0.5g) Italian seasoning. 

*Pro Tip: If you are planning to melt some cheese on top, reserve 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese for later.

Then, mix the onion butter mixture into the spinach cream cheese mixture.

*Note: The mixture will be quite hard to mix in the beginning, but the residual heat from the onion butter mixture will make the mixing a lot easier.

Now, give it a taste and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper (for reference, we used a large pinch of salt to season this properly).

Transfer everything into a cake pan, ramekins, or oven safe pan that fits in your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
