This Vegan Spaghetti is DELICIOUS! Seriously, it’s the best.
In my home, we are not Vegan but we do try and eat healthily. I also try to implement at least one meatless meal every week.
We are huge meat eaters in my family but I do recognize the benefits of eating less meat, so it’s something we’ve been working on.

If you are looking to implement more meatless dinners into your meal planning, this is a must-try. To cook this here is what you’ll need.
- 1 bag of BEYOND MEAT crumbles - see link
- 1 large can of stewed tomatoes - 28 ounce
- 1 large can of tomato sauce - 15 - 16 ounces
- 1 large sweet onion - chopped
- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
- 1 Tablespoon of Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon of ground oregano
- 1 teaspoon of sweet basil
- 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar (plus a little more to taste)
- 1 pound of Spaghetti
- 1 Tablespoon of butter
Turn on the Instant pot to the SAUTE setting, and add the butter.
When the butter melts, add the chopped onion, and saute until golden brown.
Add the minced garlic, and cook for about a minute.
Turn off the Saute setting. Add the Stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, oregano, basil, and brown sugar. Stir well, and add the Beyond Meat crumbles.
Open the Spaghetti, and take out a few pieces at a time, and break them in half, adding them to the Instant Pot.
When all the Spaghetti is added, stir the Spaghetti into the sauce, and push it down, so that it's covered in the sauce.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot until it beeps and locks. Make sure the pressure valve is set to 'SEALING', and press the MANUAL button, and set the time to 6 minutes.
When the Instant Pot is done cooking, it will beep and go to OFF. With a potholder, turn the pressure valve to 'VENTING', doing a 'quick release' and release the pressure.
When all the pressure has been released, and the float valve has dropped down, remove the lid, and stir the spaghetti and meat sauce.
Plate the spaghetti and meat sauce, and top with Parmesan cheese and parsley. Serve immediately. ENJOY!
NOTE: If you are not familiar with doing a 'quick release' in the Instant Pot, read the instruction manual or recipes that came with your Instant Pot. The manual will give you instructions on releasing the pressure, where the pressure valve is located, and where the float valve is located.
