I recently got the increasingly popular and ever so awesome kitchen appliance known as the INSTANT POT! It is an electric pressure cooker... not to be confused with the scary and slightly dangerous pressure cookers of older generations. It cooks dishes that would normally take an hour in mere minutes. AMAZING! While I have only just gotten started with it, I am excited for all the amazing ways I can use it. You can expect to see some Instant Pot recipes hitting the site soon. What I realized as I put this round up together was that there is an extreme shortage of low carb and gluten free pressure cooker recipes. I aim to change that... Challenge accepted! In the meantime, I rounded up some of the most delicious and easy low carb and gluten free Instant Pot recipes I could find.

I love your chilli recipe, can I do this in the instant pot and if so for how long
I've had my Instant Pot a few weeks now and have been using it a lot - proving hubby wrong as he thought it was 'yet another large gadget in the kitchen that won't be used'. I have made the Fall off the Bone Chicken from Healing Gourmet you've mentioned and it was delicious. Yesterday I did hard boiled eggs and they turned out perfect - I'm a convert there. The first thing I made was a Ragu sauce which was amazingly tender - I've been making ragu for 44 years and that one was the best ever! I love your site and am really looking forward to the addition of recipes for the IP.
I love my instant pot! I bought mine on Amazon Prime day at a great price. I was nervous about using it the first time, but did a test run like the manual suggested and it is so easy to use. It makes cooking very easy and the food has always been awesome. Whole chickens, bone broth, roasts, it has all been delicious and intensely flavored. It is very easy to clean. I am looking forward to your recipes Kyndra, and good luck with your goal.
I just bought another one. This one is the 7 in 1 that also has a low pressure setting. After I bought it I found out there is an 8 quart model. I have that on my wish list at Amazon. It will be great for the holidays. My family grudgingly eats vegetables, but when I cook them in the InstantPot, there are no complaints. They even like turnips and rutabagas now! I am amazed at how quickly you can cook root vegetables in a pressure cooker. With my IP and my slow cooker, I almost never use the stove top any more. It f I do need it, I use a portable induction burner because my ceramic cooktop is old and a pain to keep clean. It all keeps the electric bill lower too. With all the wonderful things you can do in a pressure cooker, my favorite is hard boiling eggs. The shells never stick. I even made a cake once. I didn't have the right sized cake pan, because mine were all too big to fit inside, so I used a small stainless steel mixing bowl. The cake was super moist and delicious.
I just got my Instant Pot and cant wait for the Low Carb recipes.
I purchased the one pot after seeing it on Peace Love and Low Carb. I work insanely long hours and as a family my no longer cooking a "real" meal at home for dinner was a big negative, we all turned to fast food and garbage.
My traditional crock pot had just died, was a former old fashion pressure user for years, and decided the one pot may help my entire family come back to the table for a healthy dinner, instead of fast food in the car.
My one pot came within 2 days from Amazon. At first it looked like a space ship, was intimidated about learning to use it. I had issues getting lid to close correctly for awhile, you get used to it.
I went grocery shopping on a Saturday deciding a bunch of recipes I could make in the one pot as a pressure cooker or slow cooker. I did all the prep work, froze the ready to go meals in large freeZer bags. Since I started a week ago we have had a fresh hot meal for dinner waiting when I get home from work each night. I take the frozen uncooked meal, put in one pot, set timer, go to work. Bbq chicken, roast chicken, tacos, chicken cacciatore, pork roast with veggies..I removed the roast and veggies from one pot last night and prepared a "gravy" changing the setting to saute.
I love my one pot and I have found it easy for me to eat low carb using it and my family has no clue they aren't getting all the carbs, salt, or preservatives.
I bought one before Christmas . . . and am ashamed to admit, it's still in it's original packaging. :/ . . . I'm terrified of it. Saw your Generous outpouring of recipes for it and well, I hope I can overcome the fear factor. Everything has a learning curve . . . thanks so much. Just found your site and it's Perfect for me. Thank you for all of the Time and Effort you are putting into this.
I have the traditional pressure cookers and look forward to using these recipes. I like the fact that I can use my cooker when the power is out. In fact I had to do just that several Christmas' ago. Made the whole meal on the stove using 3 pressure cookers. Haven''t heard of any exploding pressure cookers in more than 40 years, more like my grandmother era of the 1920's -30's . I guess I am more of a low tech country girl. Seen way too many ice storms and summer storms to depend solely on electric.
Is that because you have a gas stove?
I received an Instant Pot for my birthday in late October and I have used it almost daily ever since. It is ridiculously easy to use, and I love it. The model that my son bought me is Bluetooth enabled. He is a hardcore techie and insisted on that one, although a less expensive model would have done it for me. Having said that, I actually do use some of those features on occasion. For years I was terrified of the idea of a pressure cooker because my mother and her friends were convinced they were dangerous. Happily that is not the case. My pressure cooker and my slow cooker are my two favorite kitchen appliances. I have not used the slow cooker option on my Instant Pot although I have used almost every other function. I especially love my Instant Pot for cooking meat. It is incredibly tender and flavorful, and great for low carb or any lifestyle. It does take time to come up to pressure, but once it does, the instant part comes in! I am so glad that I can look forward to seeing your pressure cooker recipes in the future. I have all of your cookbooks and I love them. Thanks for making my life healthier and more delicious. 🙂
