Don’t Have an Instant Pot?
If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, here is why you need one in your life ASAP.
Instant Pot is a multicooker with functions of many other kitchen appliances. It’s an all-in-one appliance that takes cooking out of prepping a meal.
It does the job of a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, and steamer. It would also function as a food warmer, yogurt maker, and saute pan.
All you have to do is to choose the right function you need and your recipe calls for. If it’s a slow-cooker recipe, press the setting.
If you can only invest in one kitchen item, let it be the Instant Pot. You’ll be happy you have one and you’ll come to rely on it a lot once you have it.
Oh, let’s also not forget that it’s easy to clean it up. Because all your cooking is done in one pot, that’s pretty much all your clean-up.
If you are ready, let’s get to the 7 delicious keto-approved Instant Pot meals you can make even as a beginner.
7 Instant Pot Recipes Keto Dieters Will Love
Instant Pot Keto Breakfast Recipes
1. Keto Yogurt Recipe with Instant Pot
One thing eating keto doesn’t come with is regular yogurt. Most yogurt brands are loaded with sugar, fruits, and carbs. They are just off-limit and not keto-approved in so many ways.
If you are a yogurt lover, that’s something you had to adjust going keto. But luckily, you no longer have to give up on this quick and easy delicious breakfast.
With your Instant Pot Yogurt Maker function, you can easily make low-carb yogurt. And while there are a couple of recipes out there, the one that stands out the most is this sour cream yogurt.
It’s from Hey Keto Mama, and she only uses 3 ingredients. Sour cream, heavy cream, and keto sweetener.
If you are eating keto, the chances are all these items are your staples and you already have them in your fridge.
To keep things fun, sprinkle coconut flakes, crushed nuts, and berries on top to enjoy.
2. Cheesy Keto Egg Bites Instant Pot
One thing we all need is breakfast on the go. I seriously cannot remember the last time I was able to sit down and take my time to eat breakfast on a weekday.
That kind of luxury is reserved for my weekend brunches.
So usually, I resort to either just a cup of coffee or if I’m lucky, I have some breakfast to take on the go.
If mornings are everything for you, I suggest you have easy egg bites ready for breakfast any day of the week. And the one recipe I keep going back to is this one from Make Ahead Meal Mom.
The beauty is in the simplicity. I love the little elevated taste basil gives and the smell is divine. I also like the no-hassle approach and the flexibility it allows.
This recipe works perfectly fine with cubed ham or meatless if you want to go vegetarian. Also, coconut milk can sub heavy cream to limit dairy.
Candi listed all steps, so if you are a beginner at this, don’t worry. She got you covered and helps you tackle your mornings in an instant way!
Keto Instant Pot Lunch Recipes
3. Lemon Garlic Keto Chicken Recipe
One thing I look for in a lunch recipe is quick and easy, and nutritionally balanced.
Veggies and some protein is my go-to lunch. So when I saw this lemon garlic chicken recipe that’s low in carb, I knew I had to try.
I can pair the chicken with mashed cauliflower rice, fresh chopped kale, or other veggies. It’s also easy to take to work or tasty as leftovers.
I make this dish when chicken thighs go on sale at my nearby grocery store, and it’s a perfect recipe to make a good batch.
If you like lemony flavors, you’ll love this lemon chicken recipe.
To try, head over to Life Made Keto, where Kelly walks you through the steps to make this delicious meal.
4. Cauliflower Keto Soup
One thing I enjoy a lot during the fall and winter is soup. I love soups! I love everything about it. It’s cozy, warm, and hearty. And I can throw in a lot of veggies that I usually don’t eat enough of.
With this cauliflower soup, I get to throw in celery, which I rarely eat. I also think leeks would go well in this too.
The recipe is pretty simple and uses Instant Pot. You saute the bacon and other ingredients and cook it in the pot after. It’s just a matter of switching the cooking functions, and viola! you have a pan and pot in one!
Instant Pot Keto Dinner Recipes
5. Keto Instant Pot Stroganoff
Stroganoff is always a hit in my household. It’s one hearty dish perfect to be a keto fall dinner dish.
Because it’s pretty filling, you don’t really need other sides and what not to make a complete meal. And obviously, that’s a huge plus in my book since it cuts my cooking in half. It’s one plate dinner that satisfies everyone and every belly at the table!
With or without an Instant Pot, stroganoff is not a difficult dish to cook, unlike stew. But if hanging around the kitchen for all the time it takes to simmer, boil, etc, then try this Instant Pot recipe.
It’s a 30-minute recipe and it only takes 7 ingredients.
What I also love about this keto stroganoff recipe is that it uses ground beef rather than stew beef. It’s more budget conscious and requires no cutting.
And when you pour over zoodle or cauliflower rice, it mixes with the noodle really well.
Adding sprinkles of chopped parsley is certainly a nice touch that adds depth to the dish. I highly recommend you don’t skip it!
Here is the keto Insta Pot Beef Stroganoff I love. Add this to your keto menus. Your family will thank you.
6. Instant Pot Low-Carb Keto Chili
Believe it or not, my favorite recipe source is Food Network. Keto or not, I love going through recipes their chefs share there.
It’s the perfect place to find a bit unconventional way of making a classic dish. I also go there to look for secret ingredients that would be a total game-changer in my recipe.
There have been so many great findings! I discovered turmeric powder in coconut curry and paprika in almond flour coating. I also learned to mix and blend spices and seasonings from Foodnetwork.
This Keto chili is also one recipe where I learned to make my own chili powder. Before then, sadly, I only made chili with a store-bought chili mix.
I admit it takes a bit more ingredients than other recipes. And it also takes a bit more work. But I promise. It’s worth every bit of work you put into it.
One change I always make is canola oil. I don’t use canola oil. I use avocado oil for all my cooking and if it’s the right fit, I use coconut oil or sesame oil for cooking.
Check out this Keto chili recipe from Food Network.
Keto-Approved Instant Pot Dessert
7. Low-Carb Instant Pot Cheesecake
What better way to end this round-up than with a tasty dessert? I still can’t get over how this one cooker can make everything from soups to desserts.
There are several desserts you can make using your Instant Pot, but if you are on a keto diet, try keto cheesecake. Why? because it’s simply so delicious you’d be glad you are eating keto!
I’m not sure what your dessert preferences are like, but when it comes to sweet things, I like it simple.
I don’t want too many layers or multiple flavors. Just a tasty crust and cake is all I want. And that’s more than sufficient to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Julia from Savory Tooth totally gets me, and her cheesecake is just the perfect keto dessert!
And it’s kind of funny that it’s a very similar recipe my mom used to use when I was young trying to learn how to bake. Every time I use this recipe, I find myself reminiscing the good old days.
Let me also note that the almond flour crush is a true gem here. It’s the simplest crust recipe I found for keto, and you can use it with other desserts.
