Since making my stove-top version Vegan Chicken And Dumplings, I have been wanting to do one in the pressure cooker. I finally got a chance to do so and it was such a big hit. My family enjoyed it and best of all I did it in no time. I’m planning to make it again today.

How To Make Instant Pot Vegan Chicken And Dumplings?

To make vegan chicken and dumplings, combine flour, baking powder, salt in a medium bowl. Add butter and mix until crumbly, Add water and parsley and mix to form a dough ball, set aside. You can substitute parsley with 1 teaspoon of thyme. 

Drain soy curls, toss with Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, and Italian Seasoning. You can substitute with any chicken-style seasoning or poultry seasoning. 

Select the Saute setting on the Instant Pot and heat the oil. It should say HOT. Add Soy Curls and cook stirring until starting to brown, about 3 minutes.

Move the Soy Curls to one side of the Instant Pot, add onions, garlic, celery and cook stirring for 2 minutes. Add carrots and stir. Move the vegetables leaving a spot and add the flour and cook for 1 minute.

Add almond milk, vegetable broth, and de-glaze the bottom of the pot, using the wooden spatula to scrape the Instant Pot bottom.

Add thyme, nutritional yeast flakes, bay leaf, and salt.
Divide the dumpling batter into 10 pieces, take each piece, roughly roll into a ball and drop on top of the soup and stir gently.

Secure the lid on the Instant Pot, turn the Pressure Release knob to the Sealing position. Cancel the saute function. Press the Pressure Cook/Manual setting and set the cooking time for 5 minutes.

Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then move the Pressure Release to ‘Venting’ to release the remaining steam.

When the pin in the lid drops down, open the lid and stir, remove the bay leaf and serve.
