Instant Pot Veggie Stew

For those of you who don’t know – an “Instant Pot” is an electric pressure cooker that makes cooking many of our vegan recipes a cinch. One pot, set the program, and walk away. It will beep when it’s done!

You can seriously cook homemade beans, DRIED BEANS, in just 30 minutes from start to finish, and with NO SOAK time either. You can bake whole potatoes, make instant soups or stews, chili, rice – you name it.
