Instant Pot Vegan Lasagna

This ten minute Instant Pot Vegan Lasagna is so delicious you’ll never miss the dairy, meat or grain. I’m not joking, my husband, a meat eater, didn’t have a clue that the “cheese” wasn’t really cheese. He’d eaten his entire portion before he asked, “was there meat in that?”

This recipe is another family favorite and I’m constantly getting “Mom, when are you making the Lasagna.”  So, when I make it, it’s definitely a treat for everyone.

One of the major selling points for me was that this has no meat in it. The best part of that is that most people wouldn’t even know that it didn’t have any meat in it. My husband was so surprised that it didn’t have any meat in it. Total win for me.

I love that you can use your Instant Pot which makes it so much easier. The prep for this recipe is also something that makes me want to make this meal. Most of the items used to make this can be found in your cabinets and after made, this is a fantastic meal to be heated up. Great for on the go lunches.

If you’re totally opposed to a meal without meat this would taste phenomenal with some Italian sausage or seasoned ground beef.

Print Recipe


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion, dried
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley or basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 14 ounces zucchini
  • 1/2 cup kale or spinach, chopped


  • Add cashews, 1/2 tsp sea salt, water, olive oil, and lemon juice to a high powdered blender or a food processor. Blend until mixture resembles cream cheese. This will be your ricotta/cheese mixture. Set aside.
  • Add diced tomatoes, minced onion, fresh parsley, red pepper flakes, basil, and 1/2 tsp sea salt to a food processor or a high powered blender and pulse until everything is combined.
  • Cut zucchini in half, slice long ways into strips that are 1/4 in. thick and resemble lasagna noodles.
  • Use a 7in pan that fits inside your Instant Pot and begin laying the ingredients. I use this one, click here. Place a little sauce on the bottom, then zucchini, then ricotta mixture, repeat. You should be able to make four layers.
  • Top with chopped kale.
  • Add 1 cup of water to your Instant Pot. Cover lasagna pan with foil and place on top of the trivot that comes with your Instant Pot. Gently place trivot and pan inside of the Instant Pot.
  • Lock the lid in place and make sure the vent valve is in the SEALING position.
  • Select the MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK function, HIGH PRESSURE. Use the +/- buttons to select 10 minutes.
  • When the pot is done cooking quickly vent the pressure by turning the vent valve to the VENT position.
  • Let lasagna cool for 10 minutes and sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving, Enjoy!

  1. This recipe is so good and filling! The cashew “ricotta” is amazing. We were surprised that we didn’t miss the meat or ricotta cheese!

  2. I just love this recipe. Brittany has created a masterpeice with this Vegan lazagna. But watch out! Remember your portion size because its delicious. Good enough to eat every bite. I encourage everyone to bake this up. Enjoy eating a vegan meal. Delicious 😋.

  3. I want to make this but don’t want to use any pans that are aluminum or non-stick. Can you recommend a brand of stainless steel springform pans?

  4. M 13 year old is highly allergic to cashews. Can you given me an idea on a ricotta without the cashews? I can use cottage cheese, almonds, or anything else other than Pecans, Walnuts, Hazelnuts or Cashews

  5. Do your kids eat this? I’d be worried they wouldn’t touch it. Lol. Or do u do anything different or extra when serving it for your kids

  6. We can’t do dairy soy or cashews. Any other suggestion for a cashew replacement ? I know that’s asking a lot !

  7. 5 stars
    Another fabulously easy success from the instant pot! I thought cashews sounded weird but I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t made the dish!

  8. I got the cookbook and am excited to start cooking from it. This looks great and for those of us who do not eat gluten or dairy it’s a godsend. Thanks!

  9. I made a couple substitutions for things I didn’t have; baked it since I don’t have an IP pan; and made a couple mistakes… and it was still absolutely DELICIOUS! Will definitely make this again! Does it come out watery in the IP? My zucchini was a little watery and a little firmer than it should have been – those are my mistakes. The flavor was oh so good anyway! Husband loved it too! Thanks!

    1. Hello D,
      Zucchini releases a lot of moisture when cooked. You can try and squeeze it before cooking to get rid of some of the moisture next time you make the recipe. Hope that helps! Wishing you well!

  10. 5 stars
    Amazing! I followed the recipe as stated and it turned out great. The taste and texture was perfect for me. I definitely recommend trying this one.

  11. Hello,
    This IP lasagna recipe is a must try! In clicking your link for the 7″ pan to fit inside the IP, it takes me to a food processor on Amazon. I’m assuming you mean a different pan from the one that is part of the Instapot? I love your emails, your site, your cookbook!

    Thank you!

  12. I see artichoke in the picture, but not in the recipe. Was that a separate recipe added on top?

    1. Hi Jessica, Yes the artichokes were just a side dish we ate alongside the lasagna. Wishing you all the best!
