14 Instant Pot Vegan Recipes That Make Weeknight Cooking a Breeze
Instant Pot vegan recipes are one of the best ways to use up vegan staples like beans and lentils. There's no pre-soaking required, and the pulses pressure-cook in roughly 30 minutes, as opposed to one hour or more on the stovetop. From silky soups to lentil curries, these 14 meals will make you more than happy to dedicate some counter space to this gadget.
Cauliflower and potatoes make this soup taste creamy even without dairy. Lentils give it texture and protein, while a blend of spices and a splash of lemon juice keep the flavors vibrant. (via Vegetarian Gastronomy)
Stuffing is usually served as a side, but this recipe is satisfying enough to act as a meatless entrée. The Instant Pot makes quick work of the wild rice, which usually takes forever to cook on the stovetop. (via Show Me The Yummy)
One-pot lentil curry is an essential meal to master if you constantly find you're too crunched to cook dinner. Serve it with rice or some warmed pita bread if you don't have time to make a side dish. (via Well Plated)
Lentil soup is so much better when it doesn't come out of a can. The Instant Pot keeps the lentils from getting too mushy, and the inclusion of fresh veggies and herbs adds on layers of flavor. (via Delish Knowledge)
If a trip to New Orleans isn't in your near future, this 10-minute lentil gumbo should tide you over. Don't skip the okra — it loses its "slime" as it cooks, and helps thicken the broth. (via Cotter Crunch)
Vegan cooking doesn't have to be complicated. Prep a few bags of this soup mixture ahead of time and place in your freezer. Then put the contents in your Instant Pot on a busy night and have a hearty stew ready for dinner in under an hour. (via Pinch of Yum)
Instead of just beans, this vegan chili is filled with all sorts of good-for-you ingredients, including nuts, grains and, of course, pumpkin. All become tender, saucy, and infused with flavor in the pressure cooker. (via Pinch of Yum)
