From easy mains to snacks to breakfasts and desserts, is there anything the Instant Pot doesn't do? Whether you are a longtime IP lover looking to expand your recipe repertoire or a newbie to the world of multi cookers, this collection of more than 60 vegan Instant Pot recipes is for you!
I think I’m correct in saying that everybody’s favourite meals are those that are simple to make while still delivering on flavour.
Surely that’s the reason why the Instant Pot has become so popular in recent years. They are a great tool for quickly and easily cooking anything from dried beans to pasta, grains, potatoes, squash, and more! You can even make yogurt and desserts!
What is an Instant Pot?
A lot of people describe the Instant Pot as a pressure cooker but technically it’s actually a multi cooker. There are a range of different models that are anywhere from 6 to 10 different appliances in one.
So not only is it a pressure cooker, it’s also a slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, saute pan, and food warmer (there’s even a fancy model that includes and air fryer). It will also make your bed and take your kids to school. No it won’t.
While Instant Pots are the most well-known and popular brand of multi cookers, there are other brands of multi cookers that can do similar things as an Instant Pot. If you haven’t yet purchased one, take a look at the options and choose the one that is best suited to your needs.
Of course food bloggers are creative and they have come up with a myriad of delicious and unique vegan recipes for this handy little appliance.
So I’ve scoured the Interwebs and complied a list of more than 50 of the best vegan instant pot recipes to get the most out of this smart little gadget.
Is an Instant Pot worth it?
An Instant Pot is definitely worth it if you want to reduce the time you spend in the kitchen (and doesn't everyone?).
Once the Instant Pot is closed and cooking, you don't need to be standing over it stirring. Go ahead and relax on the couch, you deserve it!
Since the Instant Pot has so many different functions, it can replace many other kitchen appliances. Not only does this save precious counter space, it also saves you a bunch of dishes since you can make so many one-pot meals.
Once the Instant Pot finishes cooking, it automatically turns on its keep warm function, meaning you can prep your dinner in the morning and come home to a warm meal.
Finally, as every cheap vegan knows, dried beans are much more economical that canned beans, but normally take a long time to cook. Not with an Instant Pot! You can have fresh cooked beans with great texture in less than an hour.
Which size Instant Pot should I get?
Instant Pots come in 3-quart, 6-quart, 8-quart, and 10-quarts.
Most people go with the 6-quart model. It's perfect for an average-sized family and most recipes that you find online have been tested in this size of Instant Pot so you won't have to make any adjustments to the recipe.
3-quarts are good for single people or students living in a dorm, and 8-quarts are good for large families or people who cook for potlucks, barbecues or other functions.
Which model of Instant Pot should I get?
Different models have different functions so it's helpful to know what kinds of recipes you're planning on cooking in your Instant Pot as well as your budget before making a purchase.
The Instant Pot Duo and Duo Plus models are consistently considered the best all-round starter models that offer good value for money and has all the essential programs you'll need for regular use.
