Sorry, America—like CrossFit and Scientology, it looks like the Instant Pot cult is here for good. The ever-growing legion of converts love the magical appliance's versatility and its ease of use, whipping up fork-tender shredded chicken or beef stew that tastes like it was simmered for hours. Beyond these basics, however, the Instant Pot can make an endless array of uber-creative dishes, as evidenced by these #instantpot posts:
Homemade hummus tastes so much better than the stuff you get in the supermarket. Instant Pot to the rescue! Make a batch using dried chickpeas for the freshest, healthiest results.
2. Quinoa Breakfast Bowls
Yes, the Instant Pot can take on breakfast, too. Make a big batch ahead of time and store it in individual portions for the week. This filling vegan option (made with coconut milk) is a great alternative to boring oatmeal.
3. Chocolate Lava Cake
Chocolate cake in the Instant Pot? Truly, there's nothing this appliance can't do. This cake even has that deliciously gooey molten chocolate center, too.
4. Lasagna Lentil Soup
5. Banoffee Pie
First, cake; and now a pie? Banoffee pie (a combination of banana and toffee) is a staple in the United Kingdom and woefully underrepresented here, but the Instant Pot Nation can now make it an American special.
6. Vegan Cauliflower Queso
7. Chicken Foot Broth
Clearly, this one isn't for the faint of heart. Try it as a gelatin-rich alternative to bone broth. (You can even it share with your pooch!)
