One of the biggest challenges people face when following a diet is finding the time to stick to it.
It can be easy to deviate from a diet because we’re in a rush or simply lose interest in preparing healthy dinners.
However, thanks to the Instant Pot, sticking to a diet doesn’t have to be a pain.
Using an Instant Pot, we can quickly and easily prepare hearty meals without ruining our diet. One diet we can stick to easily is the keto diet.
Using an Instant Pot, we can effortlessly prepare no-fuss food that is low in calories and carbohydrates but still super yummy.
In today’s post, we’re going to show the very best keto-friendly meals you can prepare in an Instant Pot. To do so, we’ve listed the top 10.
If you’re looking for a tasty keto dinner you can prepare quickly, keep reading!
The first recipe on our list is a delicious Tuscan soup recipe from Keto (see also: 10 Superb Keto Soup Recipes Everyone Will Love!)Pots.
This savory soup is one of the best things you can make during the winter. It will keep you warm and comfy whilst satisfying your hunger.
To make this tasty soup, you need butter, onion, spicy Italian sausage, chicken broth, spinach, cream, and cauliflower.
Once you have all the ingredients, all you have to do is throw them in your Instant Pot and let them cook.
You’ll then come back to a filling soup bursting with flavor.
The addition of cream and butter helps give the soup a rich creaminess that goes down a treat.
Another fantastic soup you can make in your Instant Pot is this loaded cauliflower soup. Using cauliflower in the soup as opposed to potatoes ensures the soup stays low in carbohydrates.

The sour cream helps make this soup creamy, whilst the cauliflower offers a delightfully smooth texture.
This soup is also packed full of flavor. The salty bacon combines beautifully with aromatic garlic, sweet onions, and rich sour cream.
We love how this savory soup is given some sweetness by the onions. This is a nice touch as it adds another layer of flavor to the soup.
