The Instant Pot Vortex Plus air fryer is hot off the shelves and, if you have bought one, you are probably looking for Instant Pot Vortex recipes. So I made a list of recipes to try for you! But first, a few things you need to know about Instant Pot Vortex recipes and air fryer recipes in general.
Update: These recipes are all good for the Instant Pot Omni too! The only exception would be recipes that require use of the Vortex rotating basket. The Omni does not have that feature.
How to Find Instant Pot Vortex Recipes
Here is the thing about the Instant Vortex 7 in 1 air fryer. It is in many ways just another air fryer. Yes, it has the Instant Pot name and it can do things besides air fry, but ultimately you can use ANY air fryer recipe in it, you just might need to make a few adjustments in terms of how the food sits in it. So, before you get flustered over not seeing a ton of recipes developed specifically for the Vortex, keep in mind the basic premise that it is an air fryer. The same goes for the Instant Pot. You can use any pressure cooker recipe for it but might have to convert an automatic setting to manual. etc.
So, to find Instant Pot Vortex recipes, simply start looking to air fryer Facebook groups and Pinterest boards. Use Google to search for the types of recipes you want to make. There is also a dedicated Instant Pot Vortex Facebook group.
The Best Air Fryer Recipes to Convert to the Instant Vortex
OK, so I just wrote that you can use ANY air fryer recipe. That is true, but some will be easier to use than others. There are generally a couple of types of air fryers. Some are rounded in shape with a basket and others are more akin to a mini oven with trays like the Vortex. Recipes that were designed for the square oven-type models will carry over the best because they will be developed to use the trays and tested with that sort of layout. Likewise, recipes for convection ovens that have a rotisserie or rotating basket will carry over better because of their similarity to the Vortex.
Basket style air fryer recipes might need a bit of tweaking in terms of temperature and cooking time. But, the nice thing about the Vortex is that it has a window and a light, so you can keep an eye on how things are cooking.
I have gotten you started by making a list of great air fryer recipes to try in your Instant Vortex!
