26 Healthy Instant Pot Recipes for Vegetarians

Finding easy and healthy instant pot recipes can save your life when you are a vegetarian and have no time.

We all know that modern life can sometimes make it hard to find time to cook, but nowadays this shouldn’t be a problem. There’s a lot of alternatives and solutions, and instant pot recipes are one of them.

This post is all about vegetarian instant pot recipes, but you don’t need to be vegetarian to try them out! Whether you have vegetarian guests, are vegetarian yourself, or simply want to try out something different; I highly recommend giving one (or many) of these recipes a go.


Ingredients may vary depending on the recipe you choose to make.

To create any of these delicious dishes you will need an instant pot cooker. I personally can’t recommend enough the Amazon’s choice Yedi 9-in-1. It has so many functions such as pressure cooking, slow cooking, rice cooking, yogurt making, egg cooking, sauté, steamer and so on. It is such a life changer if you have no time for cooking!
