Root vegetables are available all year-round, but they hold a special place on our fall menus. They make for hearty comfort foods we crave in cool weather. Unfortunately, many of those comfort foods take forever — unless you have an Instant Pot.

Over the next couple of weeks, you’ll be sipping on quick and easy potato soup and veggie-loaded chicken noodle soup, serving up pot roast with tender braised tubers and more in about an hour and wowing your pals with a bight-pink hummus made with Instant Pot beets. We’ve rounded up all the best root veggie recipes you’ll actually be able to cook on a workday.
