Daugher is allergic to dairy and egg, so started buying vegan cookbooks. Realized I could use one for the Instant Pot and took a chance on this one. LOVE the recipes in here and surprisingly even my daughter is interested in using my Instant Pot now. This surprises me since she previously felt that the IP was cheating and not "real cooking". This cookbook was worth the purchase and we will enjoy working through the recipes. Easy to follow, easy ingredients.

I'm an NMD and the term 'plant-based' recipes generally means that the recipes are made with whole food, not processed. The studies and literature on the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet are based on whole food not merely 'vegan'. Sadly, the majority of these recipes aren't whole food plant-based because they use a lot of vegan butter, etc.

Another big issue is that it claims to be an Instant Pot cookbook in the title. Many of the recipes aren't even written for the Instant Pot! Many recipes are written for oven and stovetop without even mentioning the IP at all. You aren't getting 1000 IP recipes.

The recipes that are written for the IP don't tell you the settings to use. Here's an example:
"Brown Rice Herbes de Provence Soup (Total Time: 5 MIN| Serves: 6)
Ingredients: ⅓cup uncooked brown rice
plus other cold and room temperature ingredients.
Directions: Add all the vegetables to your instant pot. Add the herbs, seasoning, and spices. Pour in the broth, and brown rice. Mix well and cover with the lid. Cook for 4 minutes. Serve hot with parsley on top."

Uncooked and un-soaked brown rice that only cooks for 4 mins will not be done no matter what setting you use on the IP.

They didn't bother to format it for the Mac version of Kindle. There's no table of contents! The links frequently don't work the first time. I have the latest versions of Kindle and Sierra's OS.

A waste of my time and money. I don't recommend this cookbook.

I got this book because I also have the kindle version and I thought that a paperback would be easier to navigate back and forth. But, user error of course I didn't notice that the kindle version has 1000 recipes and the paperback has only 200, which is odd as it's the same book. I assumed that the paperback had 1000 recipes as well so I docked a star for the misleading two books.

The variety of recipes in this book appears to include something for everyone. If a person doesn't mind adding sweeteners, there are plenty of recipes using natural sugars. If a person doesn't mind using the refined vegan equivalent of cheese, sausage, butter, sour cream etc., there are plenty of recipes using those substitutions. If a person prefers to cook with unrefined wholefoods, there are plenty of recipes using whole foods. Something for everyone - but no way to easily access the recipes because I don't have a Table of Contents on my Kindle version. Why doesn't this book have a Table of Contents? Without it, well, I'll send it to the cloud to keep company with all my other mistakes. I would probably like this book if I had a hard copy because I am willing to bet that the hard copy has a Table of Contents.

Though I have read a few books about plant-based diet, there are still a few here that I did not know, the recipes are too many. I really appreciate a huge variety of recipes but I am concerned about the use of oil in being Vegan. The book is neat and well-structured. Recipes do not have the expected pictures but I understand that it may cost higher if each recipes will have pictures. Thank you for this big cookbook.

The instant pot is wildly versatile, and there is hardly any plant-based one pot-recipe that is off-limits. For a vegan like me, the pressure cooker is an irreplaceable kitchen tool. The instant pot is my perfect match in the kitchen of I can cook tender roast in just few minutes unlike my usual routine that it takes almost an hour. The Instant Pot is a self-contained unit that sits neatly on my counter-top and plugs into a power outlet and it takes up about as much space as a rice cooker or small slow cooker.

As a vegan, the very common question other people would ask is what I eat. Well, to answer them, here are the recipes I will surely try out for myself and eat! I specifically adore how Cara have compiled that many super easy vegan recipes to rescue vegans from repetitive meals.

Definitely not plant based recipes - author doesn't realize oil is a no no in plant based and is a processed food.
