In case you’re looking for inspiration, we’ve rounded up these hearty, wholesome, and super-tasty Instant Pot dinners. Happy cooking!

1. Instant Pot Mexican Casserole from Well Plated

With brown rice, black beans, chicken, and lots of veggies, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more satisfying one-bowl meal than this one. It’s also a crowd-pleaser, especially when you serve it with your fave taco toppings and let everyone make their own bowl.

2. Favorite Instant Pot Gumbo from Cotter Crunch

This plant-based soup is so hearty and filling, no one will miss the meat. The heat from the spices will take the chill right off. Leftovers are even better the next day for lunch.

3. Instant Pot Beef & Broccoli from Whole Kitchen Sink

Fast and full of flavor — and did we mention that this one is also Whole30 compliant? We love it spooned on top of cauliflower rice.

4. Maple Bourbon Chili

You had us at “maple”—or maybe it was “bourbon.” Either way, this plant-based dish incorporates kidney beans, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, garlic, and plenty of spices. It’s awesome with corn tortillas, or try it over polenta for something different.
