Why you should make vegetarian meals in an Instant Pot

Instant Pot cooking is a terrific way to help you cook healthy vegetarian meals and vegan recipes.

Why? Because you can put a meal on the table faster since these favorite Instant Pot recipes take a lot less time to cook than conventional methods. Eating vegetarian shouldn’t be complicated!

The other benefit of pressure cooking is that it preserves vitamins and minerals, resulting in a healthy meal.

That’s because the Instant Pot saturates food with steam, which retains the bright colors, nutrients, and phytochemicals in your food.

The best part of using your pressure cooker is that meal prep and clean-up is a snap with only one pot to clean.

It'll soon become your favorite way to make an easy weeknight dinner.

Instant Pot cooking tips

If you're an Instant Pot recipe newbie, these tips will come in handy:

Don’t overfill your Instant Pot. Fill your pressure cooker only about 2/3 of the way. If you overfill it, the recipe won’t cook properly.

Follow Instant Pot recipes closely. For best results, don’t fudge on the recipe! Don’t change up the cooking times, ingredient order, or chopping sizes.
