Why the Instant Pot is perfect for vegetarian cooking
Let me state the obvious here and say this. The Instant Pot electric pressure cooker has revolutionized the way we cook food. It does 3 things for us:
- saves precious time
- allows us to cook without babysitting our food on the stove
- embeds more flavor into foods in a shorter period of time than traditional cooking methods
These three things are equally important. Item #3 is especially important when it comes to vegetarian recipes because we're relying on the pressure cooker to help build flavor into our meatless meals.
When it comes to vegetarian recipes for the Instant Pot, I also know you only want well-tested recipes so your time is well-spent. Well, I've done just that for you with this collection.
