The instant pot is a modern culinary miracle.
A pressure cooker, crockpot, and rice cooker all in one, it’s hard to think of anything this device can’t do.

For some reason, most people associate the instant pot with simple chili recipes, or a quick way to make rice. An instant pot can do so much more than quickly cook your basic meal additions.
We’ve gone above and beyond to bring you healthy, great-tasting instant pot recipes that will make you rethink meal prepping.
There’s something for everyone in this multicultural, restriction-friendly collection.
Without further ado, here are 15 outside-the-box vegan recipes that can be made in this life-changing gadget.
"What Instant Pot Should I Choose?"
Before we get into the recipes, we should first go over a very fundamental question that anyone who is new to the world of Instant Pots will ask. "Which one should I choose?"
There are three different models: The Lux, Duo, and the "smart" model.
To make things simple, I recommend The Duo. It offers an additional yogurt maker function and more sophisticated controls than the Lux. The Smart model is basically the same as the Duo except it has a prettier LCD display and offers bluetooth connectivity with your phone.
Our Recommendation: The Duo
The most popular model is the Duo. It comes in three sizes, making this perfect for most people: 3 quart, 6 quart, and 8 quart.
As you can see in the graphic above, the three court is best for small families, the 6qt is good for larger families, and the 8 quart is a workhorse that's great if you have parties or a very large family.
Keep in mind that if your familysize fits the 3-quart option but you plan to do meal-prep, you might want to get the next size bigger.
This Duo does not have the bluetooth feature that the Smart edition has, but to be honest I don't think most people have a need for a smartphone-connected Instant Pot. Give it a look nonetheless to see if its features appeal to you.
Hopefully this list has inspired you to get creative in the kitchen.
Remember, eating a plant-based diet doesn’t have to be a hassle. With a little planning and the help of your instant pot, you can easily reap the many benefits of a healthy vegan lifestyle.
