The Ultimate Vegan Guide to the Instant Pot

And 10 Recipes to Try

Everyone’s raving about the Instant Pot – the one pot that can do everything! It can saute, steam, pressure cook, slow cook, make yogurt, make rice, do your laundry, pay your bills, wash your car…

No, but seriously, this appliance can do a lot!

You may have assumed that the Instant Pot is only useful for omnivores because of the meat-centered dishes that the appliance is often associated with. However, the Instant Pot can be a very useful tool for vegans and plant-based recipes.

There are quite a few options when shopping for an Instant Pot. Different models vary slightly in their capabilities, which results in a fairly wide price range. The Instant Pot also comes in 3 different sizes, so you can find the one that will suit your family size and appetite the best.
