20 Must Have Vegetarian Instant Pot Recipes
We love to cook; however, thanks to busy schedules, we do not get to bust out gourmet meals during the week. Oftentimes, we are just attempting to make sure that dinner is going to be filling for the kids. It seems that when we get stuck in that mindset, and it’s cold outside, our meals tend to look carb-loaded and saucy. Delicious? Yes. We could use a veggie infusion though and once I start down that path, our meals start looking healthier day by day. These vegetarian Instapot recipes will get those healthier dinners started for you, too.
Are you new to the Instant Pot world? I bought mine during a Black Friday sale or Digital Monday or – who knows. The point is I accidentally bought the 8 quart (I ALWAYS buy the wrong size of everything on Amazon) and it sat in my pantry for a year because it is HUGE. However, during this recent break I started using it and now I am hooked.
If you haven’t used yours yet, now is the time! If you need a little help getting start Pinch of Yum and Damn Delicious will point you in the right direction every single time. They have recipes that will check all of your boxes and their recipes never fail. I included a couple of my favorites at the top of the list.
If you happened upon this post because you are a holdout and you are trying to decide if this is worth your wild, let us help you differentiate (and help you turn the corner).

Instant Pot Size
I notoriously order the wrong size of everything via Amazon. That happened when I purchased my Instant Pot, but I am SO grateful I made the mistake. They come in 3-quart, 6-quart, and 8-quart sizes. I ordered the 8-quart. Most recipes are created for the 6-quart size and I have been having really good luck with doubling my favorite Instant Pot recipes and having leftovers. I am really big on leftovers and roll over meals, so buy the 8-quart was a pleasant surprise mistake. That being said, it is HUGE and as a result, I was intimidated to use it for the first year. Now it’s my favorite kitchen appliance.
Instant Pot Model Breakdown
This is the machine that started it all. I have the 8-quart model but it appears that only used models are available via Amazon right now.
There are several other models and I am showing a close up of their control panels so you can see the main differences between the models.
