These Instant Pot gluten-free vegan ranch potatoes are incredibly tasty and flavorful. The secret is in the herbs! The dill, chives, and garlic really make the ranch flavor shine. While yellow potatoes were used for this recipe, redskins also work well as they provide a nice backdrop for the herb mix. Don’t skimp on the dill! That provides the authentic and distinctive ranch flavor to the dish.
You’ve undoubtedly had the disheartening experience of going to a potluck and encountering a slew of dairy-based dips and spreads. This can be frustrating if you’re doing your best to follow a vegan, gluten-free diet. Don’t despair! Here is a delicious, creamy spread you can make from tofu that tastes just as good as the dairy-based variety! Even your non-vegan friends will love it. They may even beg you for the recipe. The spread is healthy, since it utilizes basil and Italian parsley, herbs that are rich in vitamin C. The tofu adds protein and calcium. Much healthier than your average spread, and so easy to make!
This bright Instant Pot gluten-free vegan lemon pepper rice has a beautiful blend of tart lemon juice, spicy fresh black pepper, and earthy black sesame seeds. The final additions of dried garlic flakes and black sesame really make a difference – white sesame can be used instead, but they are a little more waxy and lack the depth of flavor of the black seeds. This dish goes well with stir fries and fresh salads!
Autumn is well underway, and our desire to devour pasta dishes continues in earnest. Pasta puttanesca is a traditional Italian dish that tastes great, even without the addition of anchovies. It’s hearty, filling, delicious, and so easy to make. Though most pasta puttanesca recipes utilize thin spaghetti noodles, we had some dried, gluten-free fettucine noodles in our kitchen and decided to use those instead. We were delighted by the results. You don’t need many ingredients to make this wonderful meal. It’s super inexpensive! In fact, you probably have most of the ingredients in your cabinet or refrigerator already.

This warm and hearty Instant Pot gluten-free vegan Cajun split pea soup is perfect for colder autumn days and winter nights. The Cajun seasoning in this recipe has paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne, and oregano – but many Cajun seasonings have their own distinct twists.

This Instant Pot gluten-free vegan vegetable rice is an easy meal for the weekday or a quick substitute for takeout.

This yummy Instant Pot gluten-free vegan coconut rice is super easy to pair with vegetables and curries, as well as being delicious topped with some cinnamon and mango for dessert.

Do you still have a few leftover zucchinis from your summer garden? You may be wondering what to do with them.

Good thing this recipe makes two loaves, because you won’t have any trouble devouring the first one.
These Instant Pot gluten-free vegan taco lentils are perfect for actual tacos, and they also make a great addition to vegetables in a stir-fry fashion or turned into a tortilla soup with extra vegetable broth.

The salsa can be swapped for something spicer, or turn this into an Italian-inspired meal with crushed tomatoes and some fresh basil at the end.
This super quick Instant Pot gluten-free vegan Blueberry Oatmeal is an easy breakfast for busy mornings. Top with crunchy nuts, brown sugar, extra cinnamon, and even more fresh blueberries at the end for a yummy complementary combination. Steel cut oats are a little chewier and take longer to cook than quick cooking or traditional oats. You can substitute a plant milk like hemp for the almond milk, but the nut milks go really well with the slivered almond toppings.
This super easy Instant Pot gluten-free vegan pizza noodle recipe is a great substitute for greasy delivery. Don’t skip the seasonings – they give the dish the traditional pizza flavor. This recipe makes it easy for everyone to customize their own bowl with their favorite toppings!

Eat Hearty With Our Vegan, Gluten-Free German Potato Salad (Stovetop and Instant Pot Recipe Included!)
Fall is coming on strong! We don’t know about you, but we’re craving some carbs! It’s best to stick to the healthy kind, like organic potatoes. Recently, we found ourselves with a small sack of red potatoes — don’t ask how THAT happened — and wanted to do something fancier than just boiling them and slathering some Earth Balance over the top. So we modified a German potato salad recipe, substituting tempeh bacon for the animal variety, and were wowed by the results! We found smoky bacon tempeh at the supermarket, and found that it imparted the delicious flavor that is so essential to German potato salad.
It’s already fall where we live, and our thoughts naturally turn to pumpkin treats. And what is more autumnal than pumpkin pie? Normally, this cool weather delicacy is made with eggs and condensed milk, but our vegan, gluten-free version calls for unsweetened almond milk and cornstarch (or arrowroot powder). The texture is more jiggly than a traditional pumpkin pie, but our version still tastes great and goes down smooth!
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.
This applesauce is so easy to make and eat, you’ll never buy store-brand again! The Instant Pot makes it a breeze without heating a hot stove and watching the applesauce boil. Choose apples that are in season for the best flavor, and feel free to mix up the types of apples for unique combinations. Add in a little agave if you have apples that might not be as flavorful, on-season, or if the apples are more tart, like Granny Smith green apples. More often than not, though, the apples are so sweet on their own that you don’t need any additional sweeteners!
This Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Spicy Salsa is so easy, you’ll never buy pre-made again! This party-pleasing dip goes great with tortilla chips, on top of baked potatoes, added in chilis and soups, and mixed into beans and rice. Add in cilantro and herbs to taste, and fresh herbs are best. Pour into cute jars and give to friends as a quick gift with chips. Make your salsa even more like a restaurant style by blending your vegetables until puréed smoothly. A courser vegetable chop has wonderful texture and a great handmade flair, and is a prettier garnish. Don’t be tempted to take the sugar out – it balances both the acid from the vinegar and the tartness of the tomatoes!
Instant Pot Gluten-free Vegan Lemon Brussels Sprouts with Slivered Almonds (and Easy to Make Vegan AIP Friendly)
This yummy vegetable dish is quick and easy to put together. The brightness of the lemon flavor is extremely tasty with the toasted almonds! A great summer side dish of green vegetables with a satisfying crunch. Feel free to substitute toasted pine nuts in place of the almonds, as they also can add a nutty, creamy flavor to the overall dish. Avocado oil is a tasty oil with a high smoking point and healthy fats. There are a number of good reasons to include avocado oil when eating vegetables – it may increase the absorption of antioxidants and nutrients as well as being naturally anti-inflammatory! If you don’t have any on hand, olive oil also works well as a substitute.
This deliciously light and bright Instant Pot gluten-free vegan asparagus soup is a yummy way to get in vegetables. It’s light enough to have in the summer without being too heavy. The potatoes make the soup creamy without any extra nut or plant milks. White pepper is used instead of black to allow for the green color to shine, but black pepper also works well. Top with crunchy tortilla strips, dairy-free yogurt or sour cream, pine nuts, or even sunflower seeds for a nice salty, crunchy garnish. Olive oil can be used in place of avocado oil, but the latter provides a nice buttery flavor.
