What are Instant Pots?
Instant Pots are fantastic kitchen gadgets that can be used to make a huge variety of dishes from stews and soups to desserts and yoghurts.
They are essentially pressure cookers that cook food by creating a high temperature under a tight seal so that steam can’t escape. As the food is steam-cooked, it cooks much more quickly than it would if you were to cook the same meal on the hob.
This means Instant Pots are great for those days when you’re in a hurry but don’t want to compromise on having a nutritious plant-based dinner.
They even have a slow cooker function so you can make your dinner in the morning ready for your evening meal.
If you find yourself cooking a lot of vegan storecupboard staples like lentils and beans then an Instant Pot might just be your new best friend!
There’s no pre-soaking of pulses and legumes required, and the pulses pressure-cook in just 30 minutes. You can even use your instant pot as a rice cooker to make mountains of perfectly fluffy rice.
