Instant Pot Vegan Dirty Rice

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

A southern, Creole classic just in time for Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras and Lent….and if you have no thought what any of that is…then this is just a delicious vegan dinner thought!
