Teriyaki Tempeh and Broccoli from The Vegan Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook

Teriyaki Tempeh and Broccoli from The Vegan Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook by Heather Nicholds requires just a few ingredients and it cooks up in a matter of minutes! It’s the perfect dinner for busy weeknights.

Electric Pressure Cookers

Using an electric pressure cooker can be complicated. I have an Instant Pot, and I don’t even bother trying to come up with my own recipes for it. I never know how long things need to cook, what kind of pressure foods require, or what type of release I should use. Since I rely on recipes from others when using it, I’m pretty excited about Heather Nichold’s new book The Vegan Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook.

The Vegan Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook

In The Vegan Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook, Heather demystifies these strange kitchen gadgets. She explains how they work, what all of the gizmos they contain do, and what all the buttons are for. Heather also explains the basics, making it easy to know what type of pressure to use to cook different foods. A kitchen safety guide is included, and misconceptions are debunked, too.

The Recipes

The recipes in The Vegan Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook are easy to make and use just 5 core ingredients. Ingredients that are found in just about any kitchen, such as salt, water, oil, vinegar, and dried spices aren’t counted as core ingredients. Most of the recipes are budget-friendly and use whole foods that can be found in just about any grocery store.

The recipes are organized according to what type of food they are. So, there’s a chapter dedicated to grains, one for beans, another for pastas, and so on. The dishes will get you from breakfast and lunch all the way through dinner and dessert. No one will be able to resist delicious dishes such as Thai Coconut-Chickpea Stew, Creamy Mushroom Rigatoni, or Fudgy Brownies!

Snacks and drinks are also included, and recipes such as Spinach-Artichoke Dip, Spicy Potato Bites with Avocado Dip, and White Bean Crostini are easy to make when the munchies strike. Heather also includes recipes for vegan basics, such as Tofu Feta, Steel-Cut Oat Milk, and Lentil Bolognese Sauce.

Teriyaki Tempeh and Broccoli

Teriyaki Tempeh and Broccoli

Tempeh is made of soy but is totally different from tofu. It’s a dense patty of cultured soybeans that originated in Indonesia. Like tofu, tempeh needs to have flavor infused into it and also needs to be cooked. Putting it in the electric pressure cooker with bold flavors is a perfect way to quickly create an irresistible meal.


  • 1/4
    tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/4
  • 1
    olive oil or untoasted sesame oil
  • 1
    maple syrup or unrefined sugar
  • 1
    cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1/2
    ground ginger or 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1
    (8- or 9-ounce)
    package tempeh
  • 1/2
    cut into pieces


  1. In your electric pressure cooker’s cooking pot, stir together the tamari, water, olive oil, maple syrup, cornstarch, and ginger. Add the tempeh and broccoli (or put the broccoli in a steamer basket on a trivet to cook above the tempeh, if you like). Close and lock the lid and ensure the pressure valve is sealed, then select High Pressure and set the time for 5 minutes.
  2. When the cook time is complete, quick release the pressure, being careful not to get your fingers or face near the steam release.
  3. Once all the pressure has released, carefully unlock and remove the lid and toss to combine.

This easy recipe for Baked Loaded Potato Wedges will blow you away with the delicious combo of crispy baked potatoes,  tofu bacon bits, and a creamy vegan cashew cheese sauce.

While you could eat these loaded potato wedges as a meal or side dish, I love serving these as a shared appetizer or a Game Day snack. Having a few is delicious, but having a whole sheet pan on your own is quite gluttonous so you might want to share. If you’re hosting a party, a movie night or a game day get-together, make sure to put these delicious loaded potato wedges on the menu and you will be everyone’s favorite!

These Vegan Cheesy Potato Wedges are perfect for when you’re craving something cheesy and comforting. The potatoes are baked not fried.  They are baked on the same sheet pan as the tofu bacon which makes for easy clean-up. While the potato wedges are baking, we whip up my favorite vegan cashew cheese sauce. It only takes minutes and you’ll love the creamy rich texture. I like to make some extra and serve pasta with vegan cheese sauce and bacon the next day. You can also slice the potatoes into halves to make loaded baked potatoes!
