Vegan veteran Hester's (The Easy Vegan Cookbook) ode to the Instant Pot, an appliance that functions as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, warmer, yogurt maker, and saut vessel, is a solid work for new Instant Pot owners and time-pressed vegans. Dishes that sound complicated such as cheesy potato pierogies, black chickpea curry, and a tres leches inspired dessert tamale filled with dates and caramel come together in a matter of minutes. Hester's emphasis on flavor and ease will go a long way; she employs commonly sourced ingredients as often as possible, and the book is peppered with suggestions for substitutions. Helpful Instant Pot specific tips on settings and timing for certain dishes also help to ensure success. Readers without an Instant Pot will still be able to prepare vegan ricotta, andouille seitan sausage, and quick red curry zucchini noodle soup using other equipment (a pressure cooker in most cases). Though vegans with an Instant Pot will clearly get the most out of the book, cooks of all tastes and skill levels will appreciate Hester's inventive and approachable collection.
