These Instant Pot gluten-free vegan marinara potatoes are super easy and packed with delicious flavor. They are nice little switch from spaghetti while being hearty. Different types of potatoes can be substituted, but the yellow ones add a nice, buttery flavor. There’s no need to peel the potatoes, but they can be peeled prior to cooking or even mashed at the end for a unique twist on mashed potatoes. Top with dairy-free cheese or sour cream, or serve as-is for an Italian-inspired side dish.

Select the Sauté option on the Instant Pot, add in olive oil, onion, and garlic. Cook until translucent and aromatic, about 3-4 minutes. Turn off the Instant Pot.

Add in potatoes and tomato sauce, and stir until the potatoes are completely covered by the sauce. Close and lock lid.

Set Instant Pot on the Manual setting on High for 6 minutes. Once the Instant Pot beeps allow to release naturally for about ten minutes, and then quick release the rest of the pressure.

Salt and pepper to taste, then serve.

Serve warm! This recipe lends itself well to doubling. If you have any leftover, add in some vegetable broth during the reheat and it makes a nice tomatoey potato soup.

  1. Just reading the recipe, how does this not result in a burn error with no liquid besides tomato sauce? I’m afraid to try it lol

    1. Hi Karen! This recipe was actually created by Chef Natalie, who is no longer here, so we can’t ask her. However, the rule of thumb is that you need at least one cup of liquid, and this has 1 1/2 cups. That said, if your tomato sauce is extra thick you may want to water it down slightly.
