Introduction

Who said healthy foods can't be tasty; I am a health-conscious person and love to eat healthy food, as well as tasty food.

You Don't Have to Cook Fancy or Complicated Masterpieces. Just Tasty Food from Simple Healthy Ingredients

If you follow Ayurveda you know why we shouldn't eat meat or non-veg, so finally here is a Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook.

Plus, these do not require ingredients that'll hurt your budget; most of the ingredients are readily available in your home.

Every recipe is properly portioned and will be ready under 30 minutes or less. These quick and simple recipes will get your meal ready on the table in no time.

The Glory of Instant Pot

The Pressure Cooker and slow cooker was paired to create a new machine named the Instant Pot. It's perfect for making a quick, healthy meal when you get home from work in the evening, or when you get to work in the morning.

It's a great kitchen gadget that saves you hours every week. Who wouldn't want that? Instant Pot also offers you the freedom to cook your meals and to do whatever you need or want to do in the meantime.

Thanks to this smart kitchen appliance, you can go clean your home, go to the gym, or even go to work for a whole day when your food (and your house) is all in one piece. And all this without cheating on the taste and quality.

One of the many important benefits offered by Instant Pot is that it keeps the meals warm for up to ten hours. And that's a couple more minutes saved right here if the reheating of meals isn't what you really love doing.

Plus, if you're cooking for the entire family, the cooking Pot (the Inner Pot) is big enough to take in several portions comfortably. The best thing about it is even if you fill the Pot to the top, it will always take the same amount of time to cook it all up as it will in a quarter or half-filled Pot. (But it’s not recommended, we’ll cover the reason in the next chapter)

In short, Instant Pot is the greatest investment you can make in your kitchen if you're short on time and can't slave over a Pot for hours.

Some Common FAQS and Other Essential Information

What is Instant Pot?

If you spend any time in the kitchen, you may have heard about the Instant Pot. However, until you've tested it out yourself, you don't really realize how much of a lifesaver it is. Think of Instant Pot like the reverse of a slow cooker—an electronic appliance that utilizes pressure to serve your favorite dishes in minutes.

It's a single appliance that does the job of seven separate kitchen appliances—a slow cooker, electronic Pressure Cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, Sauté/browning pan, and warming Pot. Sounds pretty good, don’t it? There’s still more, you can choose from about 20 different Instant Pot models and sizes ranging from 3 to 8 quarts.

The 3-quarter size is suitable for a small family of two or three, the 5-quarter and 6-quarter sizes are perfect for four or six, while the 8-quarter is big enough for families of six or more. Certain Instant Pot versions, such as the smart Wi-Fi model, allow you to track and manage your Instant Pot from your Smartphone or Tablet.

How Does Instant Pot Work?

Instant Pot is an electric Pressure Cooker that produces a rapidly pressurized atmosphere by mixing heat and steam to cook food quickly. While Instant Pot is a fairly recent brand, Pressure Cooking has been around since the 1600s.

The seal ring of the Instant Pot provides an airtight space that enables pressure and heat to build up safely. The usage of Instant Pot is fairly simple since it is an all-in-one device that cooks several (and sometimes all) meal components at the same time.

Does Pressure Cooking Destroy Nutrients?

To a point, all cooking techniques minimize the nutritious content of food, but research provides reasons for and against Pressure Cooking.

Although certain people equate high temperatures of Pressure Cooking with a lack of nutrients, this is the reverse of reality. Pressure Cooking helps heat to be distributed uniformly and rapidly, meaning you don't need to immerse foods like frozen veggies in the water. Just enough water is required to produce adequate steam, and most recipes use only one cup of water.

Since food is not immersed in water, vitamins will not be lost and should then be retained for consumption. Moreover, the steam that surrounds the food stops it from being oxidized by exposure to air. You can notice that your green vegetables will emerge from the Instant Pot looking just as fresh as they were when they went in, and retaining their natural flavors as well.

Some researches that prove Pressure Cooking is good are:

One 1995 research declared Pressure Cooking the best out of other cooking techniques, as the pressure-cooked foods retained more nutrients than the others.  A report in the Journal of Food Science found that pressurized broccoli retained 90% of its vitamin C, relative to 78% preservatives from steaming and 66% preservatives from boiling.

Scientists observed that boiling and steaming decreased the antioxidant activity of legumes while boiling pressure and steaming pressure enhanced the antioxidant activity.

Compared to microwave-cooked meals, pressure-cooked meals tend to be easier to digest, which may mean that the body is able to absorb more nutrients from your food.

How to Cook With the Instant Pot?

How you use your Instant Pot depends on what you're cooking for. Check the recipe and adjust the device to the right pressure point (High or Low), then add the amount of time you'd want stuff to cook. High Pressure is used for most recipes, with Low Pressure used most commonly for quick cooking and more delicate foods, such as yogurt, custards, and certain rice dishes.

Once the device is set, the clock does not continue to count down automatically. The Pot needs to build up the pressure first. Based on the contents, it should take 5 to 20 minutes. Also, double-check whether the steam valve is in the locked, sealed position. (Incorrectly Sealing the vent is a common error for multi-cooker novices. Pressure cannot be created while the system is in Venting.)

Here is a basic idea:

Set the Instant Pot default to Sauté mode. Add oil (or other fats) and brown your food. During this stage, aromatics, including garlic and onion, are also browned.

Click the Cancel icon, then. Now hit Manual, followed by Pressure. Click it again to switch to High-Pressure mode (which most recipes require). Use the Plus and Minus buttons to adjust the cooking time.

Place the lid on the Instant Pot and lock it in place. You will hear a nice little click that lets you know its shut.

Make sure the valve in the lid is in the Sealing position.

When adequate pressure is built in the Instant Pot, the red button will light up. Now the cooking time will officially begin. The above steps can vary quite a bit, depending on the recipe, but most of what I cook in my Instant Pot follows this sequence. 

Benefits of Cooking Your Own Meals

When you visit an Ayurvedic doctor for a health evaluation, it is generally found out how important it is to cook your own food, and ideally fresh every day.

There are also advantages to preparing your own meals.

You can choose your own cooking oil—ghee or a healthy vegetable oil as opposed to canola oil in most restaurants.

You can decide how much and what type of salt you want to add to your food.

You can make sure that only the best quality certified ingredients goes into your body.

You can use fresh herbs and spices to your taste as per your likings and Ayurvedic constitution.

Cooking is more cost-efficient than dining out.

Safety Points to Consider:

Fill Your Cooker the Right Way

What you bring in the Instant Pot all matters. Too much food or liquid in your Instant Pot when Pressure Cooking will contribute to hazardous amounts of pressure. That's why you're not supposed to fill the Instant Pot to the rim.

As a rule of thumb, do not let the total amount of pre-cooked food and liquid in the Inner Pot go above two-thirds of the line. If you are Pressure Cooking food that expands, like rice, beans, pasta or dried veggies, be even more careful; fill the Inner Pot to half full only.

Additionally, always add at least 2 cups (500 ml) of water or other liquids while Pressure Cooking or the device does not pressurize properly.

Cranberries, apple sauce, cereals such as pearl barley, split peas, noodles, and rhubarb can sputter or foam. This will trigger the steam escape valve to clog, creating too much pressure. Instant Pot advises using such products only when the Instant Pot recipe recommends it!

Be Careful With the Lid

It is necessary to lock the lid properly before any Pressure Cooking. A lid that's off the kilter or unlocked will explode and ignite.

Also, double-check whether the Sealing ring is correctly placed under the lid, clean and free of contaminants before cooking. Otherwise, the lid may not seal.

Finally, rotate the lid in the clockwise direction and match the arrow with the locked icon to keep the Pot locked properly. Your display will blink Lid if it is not correctly aligned.

Note: Programs continue cooking for 10 seconds after you hit the button. So make sure that you have the lid locked and the steam release handle where it needs to be before you press Sauté, Slow Cook, Pressure Cook, Yogurt, or any other program keys.

Let the Instant Pot Do Its Job

In the old days of Manual Pressure Cookers, my mom had to wait for the pressure to build up and when to take off the lid. Things become a bit better with the Instant Pot since it will schedule it for you; just let it do its job.

The Pressure Cooker will take at least a couple of minutes to 40 or more to get to where it needs to be.  Do not open the cooker until it has depressurized completely to avoid explosions, even if you just want a quick peek.

Pro tip: If the float valve is still up or the lid is difficult to turn, the cooker is most likely still pressurized. Give it time and follow the recipe instructions for releasing pressure.

Stay Away From the Steam

This is a tip that stayed true for my mom's old Pressure Cooker to the modern digital versions. Don't put any exposed body part over the steam valve unless you want a nasty burn. Be sure to keep your Instant Pot out of the reach of children, too. 

What All Buttons Do?

Plus and Minus

You'll find that your Instant Pot has a Plus and Minus button in the middle of it. They are potentially the most frequently used buttons. Use the Minus button to lower cooking times and the Plus button to add time after you press a program key like Rice, Chili, or Soup.

Over the Plus and Minus keys, there is a monitor of three lights labeled Less, Normal, or More. Pressing the Minus button to turn the Less mode on and the Minus button to get to the More mode doesn't work. Instead, repeatedly press the program button.

Soup/Broth, Meat Stew and Chili Buttons

The Soup/Broth, Beef Stew, and Chili buttons are pretty obvious, but you can mix them with the Plus and Minus buttons to achieve great cooking.

For example, if you are cooking soup without meat, press the Soup/Broth button and the Minus button to start the Less mode. Click the Soup/Broth button before the More mode lights up while you're making rich bone broths.

Start with the Less mode with the Meat Stew button to give the meat a soft texture with some chew or More mode if you want the texture to fall off.

It's the same for the Chili button. If you like your beans to be a little stiffer, reduce the cooking time. If you like your beans to be super soft, ramp it up.

Poultry

This button can cook birds to perfection, as long as you learn how to prepare them. As with stews, you can incorporate more cooking time to make the meat fall-off-the-bone soft tender, or you can select less time for the chewier texture.

––––––––

Porridge and Steam

For both the Porridge and Steam buttons, you click the Plus or Minus button, as well as the program button, based on what you're preparing.

If you're preparing white rice porridge, then it's a smart idea to just click the Porridge button. On the other side, if you are cooking oatmeal, click the Porridge button to set the Less mode. When you are making congee with rice and beans, you may need to click the Porridge button to enable the More mode for a longer cooking period.

Similarly, if you're steaming fish and shrimp, just hit the Steam button. If you are cooking vegetables, use Less mode, and if you are steaming meat, use More mode.

Rice and Multigrain

The usage of Rice and Multigrain buttons is close to Porridge and Steam. You can literally click the Rice button if you're cooking white rice. It's instant, there's no need for Plus or Minus keys. However, whether you're cooking brown rice or wild rice, you'll need to press the Multigrain button. Rice cooked using the Multigrain button will end up being hard if you use Less mode and it will be extra soft if you use More mode.

Sauté

Sauté is almost like Sautéing in a pan. It browns onions/garlic and may pre-cook vegetables to improve the tastes of soups, stews, and chilies. You may also use it to thicken sauces by using the Less mode or by using the More mode to stir-fry.

Yogurt

You don't just press the corresponding button and walk away while you make yogurt. First, you'll need to pasteurize the milk by clicking Yogurt to the More mode. Then, click the Yogurt button to ferment the milk. Only click the Yogurt and Minus button if you want to make Jiuniang.

––––––––

Slow Cook

If you haven't already noticed, this cooks little by little whatever you put in your Pot. Slow cooking will allow food the time to cook when you're at work.

For best results, after pressing the Slow Cook button, use Less mode for mild heat or More mode for high heat, according to your recipe. Pressing the Slow Cook button should offer you a low-heat setting equivalent to the Low setting on a slow cooker.

Pressure Level and Pressure Cook

Pressure Cooking is exactly as it sounds like. Instant Pot boils the liquid that has been added to the Pot to build pressure. This Pressure Cooks food quicker than other cooking methods, this also keeps food juicy throughout the cooking process.

Just click the corresponding key to start Pressure Cooking. The Pressure Level button sets the pressure point between low and high. You'll need this button to change the amount of pressure as guided by your recipes. Use the Plus and Minus keys to modify the timer.

Delay Start

Do you want to pause before you continue cooking? Click any of the program buttons that you typically desire, and then hit the Delay Start button. Using the Plus and Minus keys to select the time you want to wait. Once the time runs out, the Instant Pot begins cooking with whatever information you've programmed for cooking.

Keep Warm

Normally, you don't need to press this button. The warming mode is turned on automatically during all programs except Yogurt and Sauté. You will have the option to turn the Keep Warm function on or off by simply pressing the button after you choose the program.

Don't Forget, Instant Pot Remembers

After putting your preferences on the Plus or Minus button, the Instant Pot will recall and use them next time you press Soup, Stew, Chili, or whatever. So don't adjust the time unless you didn't enjoy the way your last dish turned out to be.

Pro Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Instant Pot
