Cut down on your keto meal prep time with these low carb Instant Pot recipes that are sure to please your entire family!
The Best Low Carb Instant Pot Recipes
We’ve teamed up with a bunch of fellow Instant Pot lovers to bring you this hefty list of our favorite keto Instant Pot recipes. Note that even though it says Instant Pot, you can also make these recipes in any electric pressure cooker. You can even modify them to be cooked in a slow cooker, but the cooking time will change.
If you’ve never used an Instant Pot before, we’ll give you the lowdown. It’s basically the best kitchen appliance ever created! Hands down.
(And no they’re not paying us to say this, lol. We’d love to work with them though! If anyone knows someone at the Instant Pot corporate HQ pass them along our info, pretty please!)
Do You Need a 6 Quart or an 8 Quart Instant Pot?
First off you need to choose which Instant Pot you will need.
With soups and bone broths, we prefer to cook in an 8 quart Instant Pot because these recipes can get a little messy (plus we love leftovers). For almost anything else, depending on what size it is, it should be ale to go into a 6 quart Instant Pot.
Do I Need an Instant Pot with a Yogurt Function?
Lara bought one with a yogurt function right when it came out, and she has yet to make yogurt in it, hahaha. She even bought the handy dandy yogurt maker that makes it easier to drain the whey away…it’s still sitting unopened in her pantry.
Will I Need a Trivet?
For recipes where the food will be sitting in a container (like Instant Pot cheesecake) or for recipes where you don’t want the food to touch the liquid (like steamed veggies), you will need either a trivet or a steamer basket to get your desired results. Check out these Instant Pot Trivets you can get on Amazon.
Will I Need a Push Pan or a Cheesecake Pan?
Good question. You can make many more things than just a low carb cheesecake or low carb cake in a push pan or cheesecake pan. You can make casseroles, lasagnas, low carb enchiladas, and so many more things. Just get creative with it!
Will I Need to Make an Aluminum Foil Sling?
You will need to make an aluminum foil sling for recipes in which you need to remove a container, such as the cheesecake recipe above. The aluminum foil sling makes it 1000 times easier to remove the pan without burning yourself. Trust us, we’re speaking from experience.
Other alternatives are to purchase silicone mittens or these silicone bands that you can wrap around the container to make it easier to remove from the inner liner.
There are a bazillion YouTube videos out there on how to use an Instant Pot, so we won’t re-create the wheel. Feel free to do a quick search and watch a few of them.
