15 Of My Favorite Vegan Instant Pot Recipes

Sharing is caring!

The Instant Pot is a seriously handy kitchen appliance. Soups, steamed veggies, and even baked goods are all game for the Instant Pot. The best part? It’s super fast. Recipes that would normally take a long time are done very quickly, which I love. Everyone knows I’m a lazy cook sometimes.

It’s also very easy to use, even though I was a bit intimidated at first. Any sort of pressure cooking sounds a bit crazy in the standard home kitchen. But, it’s truly a great appliance. I’m excited to share some of my favorite vegan Instant Pot recipes. Let me know in the comments if you try any of them!

1. Vegan Instant Pot Creamy Potato Soup

This cozy soup is creamy, tasty, and really satisfying. You may even have all the ingredients you need on hand! Creamy potatoes paired with savory herbs make this soup a favorite in our household. It’s also very easy to make.
