These Instant Pot Root Vegetables are a delicious and healthy fall side dish recipe cooked in a creamy white wine lemon caper sauce!  Serve with any protein, or spoon on top of noodles or rice for a complete meal.

Root vegetables are a staple all year long on our homestead. We love roasting potatoes, carrots, parsnips, and sweet potatoes for a simple side to go with dinner.  These Instant Pot Root Vegetables are simple and delicious. They can be served as a side dish or loaded onto rice (our preferred method of eating).

This Instant Pot Root Vegetable Recipe Is:

  • Earthy
  • Sweet
  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Healthy
  • Ready in about 20 minutes in the Instant Pot (start to finish!)
  • Vegan, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Dairy Free

This recipe is a riff off my Roasted Root Vegetables Recipe, which is probably our most made meal!  I decided to mix it up and cook the veggies in the Instant Pot instead of in the oven.  The result was heavenly.  The sauce is light, sweet, and slightly acidic, which is fantastic with the hearty roots.
