Instant Pot Cajun Spiced Zucchini

I had a reader write in and say that their least favorite vegetable is zucchini.  

I will have to respectfully disagree with them, but then they could just not have this awesome recipe to eat it with.

If you know me, you know that I love cajun flavors, so I decided to combine some cajun spices with a little hot sauce for a spicy, but buttery flavor.

I usually make this in a pan, but I have been loving my Instant Pot lately, so I have been using it as much as possible.  

Plus it’s just easier to cut up the zucchini and throw it into the Instant Pot and press a few buttons.  

I don’t like overcooked vegetables, I feel like that’s one reason that so many people hate vegetables.  They’ve just gotten overcooked and under seasoned veggies.
