Mine arrives in a week.  I bought mine mostly for rice and am interested to see any vegan recipes you may have tried. I really want to try making vegetable stock from scratch. Other wish list items I want to try: baked beans and retried beans.
anaphylaxis to tree nuts, peanuts, and potatoes; severe dairy intolerance; vegan (preference)

Beans come out great, and no need to pre soak.  However, it is easy enough to set them in the pot before bed and cook the next day.

I broke my crock pot and bought a new one.  the new ones are HORRIBLE!!!  I like to cook low and slow especially when I'm at work all day.  this new one is literally burning stuff while on low after 3-4 hours!! 
it boils liquid while on warm. 
So, I see the instant pot can also be used as a slow cooker.  has anyone tried it? 

My grandma used to make beans for my dad with a pressure pot that went on the stove.  when i slept over I would wake up to the steam noise coming out of the pot.  (nice memory)

Preheat to sautée.  Chop 2 carrots, 2 stalks celery, 1 onion and 4 cloves of garlic.  When the pot is hot, sautee the carrots, celery and onions for about 5 minutes, then add garlic.  Add 1 lb. of baby potatoes (halved), 1 can of kidney beans (drained), and a 14.5 oz. can of chopped tomatoes with their juice, and 1 cup of chicken broth.  Then add 6 skin on chicken thighs or legs. The recipe calls for salt, pepper, and oregano, but I don't use salt, and DH hates oregano, so I just used a sprinkle of poultry seasoning.  Stir gently.

Cool on high pressure for 10 minutes, using a natural release. Remove chicken from the pot, shred from the bones, then return to the pot along with 1 TBSP. Balsamic vinegar and 2 TBSPS. Choppped parsley.

This produced a little more liquid than I expected, so I just removed it with a slotted spoon. Liquid would be great for dipping bread or poring over rice.
