Oooh, I really am thinking about getting an instant pot. It seems like it would be a big time saver for me, because we eat so many beans. What are your favorite things to make in it?

Instant pit is perfect for stock, soup and beans. I also like it for hard boiled eggs, caramelized onions, making yogurt, rice, quinoa, congee, and slow-cooked dishes like pulled pork. Love it for ribs (I pressure cook and then broil in oven / grill on BBQ or fire). Also good for cheesecake.

It's a tool like anything else. It's faster for things that should be cooked low and slow but not good for things you want to monitor closely and check continuously.  Slower for cooking vegetables and simple-to-heat foods.

We love ours and use it all the time. Partly because it replaced my nonstick rice cooker with a gorgeous stainless steel pot that does the exact same thing.

I use my Instant Pot almost every day.  I like to use it for soups, chili, "burrito bowls" of rice and beans, quinoa, some pasta dishes (a delicious vegan tofu bolognese), marinara sauce.  I think my favorite thing though is the crusty artisan bread!  Delicious, and my friends ask me to make it over and over and want the recipe.

I saw today that Costco carries Instant Pots, but I found a better deal on eBay.

We made some grilled portabello mushroom burgers last night with some gouda cheese melted on top and a thick slice of tomato on a bun.  They were pretty awesome.

Can I get the bread recipe? That sounds really interesting!

I use this one as the "basic outline" recipe, since I use whatever I happen to have (or add in things like chopped jalapenos!):

Just made a really tasty adzuki bean and greens dish. It's really very good. http://www.eatori.com/2012/06/adzuki-beans-with-miso-and-greens.html

Tonight is Zoodles Lo Mein, with tofu instead of chicken. One of my very favorite low-cal, filling, yet mostly veggie dishes :)

Breakfast of champions for two hearty eaters (or three ordinary mortals, or one very hungry hippo):

Take one can of coconut milk, mix with two cups of oatmeal, two heaping teaspoons of chocolate powder, and one large scoop of your favorite chocolate flavored protein powder.  Add in a tablespoon full of honey.  Heat and mix together over the stove on medium heat for about five minutes.  Stick into two bowls and top with grated chocolate chips and grated coconut.

Potlikker soup - leftover collard greens (these cooked without meat, which is unusual for me), leftover blackeyed peas, Rotel. With corn chips because I just can't be bothered to make cornbread today.

We've been trying to eat less meat and dairy, more legumes and vegetables.  Tonight was chickpea tikka masala (vegan)over rice,  with homemade naan (not vegan).  It was delicious,  and I absolutely didn't miss the meat.  For me,  Indian food is all about dipping naan in sauce anyway.

I used the extra chickpeas to make a curried chickpea spread,  which is way better than I anticipated.  Chickpeas, salt, parsley,  shallot,  cucumber, curry powder,  mayo.   Not vegan, since I used regular mayo,  but that would be an easy swap.

My everyday vegan lunch burrito: brown rice cooked in vegetable broth, lentils, black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, cumin & Penzey's Southwest seasoning in a tortilla. I make ~15 at a time and freeze them. Not the most exciting but I don't have to think about lunch every morning!
