40 Fantastic Vegetarian Instant Pot Recipes

The Instant Pot’s main claim to fame is its magical meat-cooking prowess, churning out tender proteins in little time. But there are tons of delicious vegetarian Instant Pot recipes out there that prove the kitchen wizard is awesome for serving up tasty and totally meatless comfort food too.

We put together a whole bunch of the best vegetarian Instant Pot recipes you can make. There’s a little bit of everything here: aromatic soups, homey stews, creamy casseroles, delectable pastas, tantalizing curries, and filling chilis. They also run the gamut from totally vegan to totally cheesy.

Most of these veg-friendly recipes begin with a hearty plant protein base like lentils, tofu, or beans. (Instant Pots are especially great when you’re starting with dried legumes—which, thankfully, cook much faster under the high heat and pressure than on the stovetop.) And they’re packed to the brim with veggies and grains, which means lots of fiber and flavor. 

And since vegetarian Instant Pot recipes tend to be pretty straightforward—they often involve little more than prepping all your ingredients and tossing them into the pot to cook for a bit—they’re great for quick and easy plant-based weeknight dinners; not to mention, leftovers for lunch the next day.
