17 Easy Vegan Instant Pot Recipes You’ll Love

I don’t know about you, but all my favorite recipes have two things in common: They are delicious and easy to make. Don’t get me wrong; I like the occasional culinary challenge—I make my own cashew cheese and I’m determined to master these tempeh recipes. In fact, I’d rather take the time to prepare myself tasty plant-based meals at home than go out to eat any day. But after a long day of working (or playing) hard, the last thing I want to do is spend hours in the kitchen. It’s part of the reason I love vegan Instant Pot recipes so much—they literally cook themselves!

Whether you’re a lazy cook (like me) or a gourmet chef, it’s a good idea to have a few healthy, delicious, and easy vegan Instant Pot recipes in your repertoire. This is perhaps especially true for those responsible for feeding many people. (I’m looking at you, plant-based moms and dads.) But even if you’re only responsible for feeding yourself, Instant Pot recipes are your friend. From dumplings to tacos to chili, a whole world of easy vegan cooking is just waiting for you.
