15 Instant Pot Recipes to Power You Through Whole30
Following the Whole30 diet, you're probably cooking a lot more than you're used to. Like, to the point that you're craving convenience more than cupcakes. That's your cue to take advantage of the Instant Pot. These time-saving Instant Pot recipes call for Whole30 staples like olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and coconut milk. And while you'll want to use ghee instead of butter and olive oil instead of canola oil in a handful of these dishes, you won't have to scramble for substitutions.
Instant Pot® Roasted Whole Chicken
Instant Pot® Garlic Roasted Potatoes
Russet potatoes aside, you'll find all the ingredients you need for these crispy, garlicky potatoes already in your pantry. And as with chicken broth, choose vegetable broth with no added sugar or other sneaky ingredients.
Instant Pot® Vegetable Soup
"This was excellent! I made as written except for the lemon zest because I didn't have it, and it was still great. Everything had the perfect consistency, including the zucchini, which usually turns to mush in soups. This soup has tons of flavor, and it doesn't get any easier or faster than this." — Soup Loving Nicole
Instant Pot® Ginataang Salmon (Filipino Salmon in Coconut Milk)
Instant Pot® Indian Chicken Curry
Instant Pot® Keto Chicken and Kale Stew
Instant Pot® Collard Greens
You don't have to tweak our Instant Pot Collard Greens to keep this soul food classic in line with Whole30 rules. Just be sure to read labels when you're buying bacon, as it often contains sugar.
Pressure Cooker Goat Curry
This Indian-inspired dish calls for 30 minutes of prep time and about an hour in the Instant Pot, but it's worth it. "Using an electric pressure cooker cuts down on the cooking time while still rendering tender meat," recipe submitter jmerar says.
Pressure Cooker Potato Salad
Instant Pot® Sauerkraut
Sauerkraut doesn't ferment in the Instant Pot, but it tastes pleasantly salty all the same.
Instant Pot® Jamaican Chicken Curry
You don't need rice to fill up on this Jamaican-style chicken, recipe creator Bibi says, as potatoes and baby carrots are starchy in their own right. But you can call on cauliflower rice to absorb the delicious curry.
Instant Pot® Vegan Cabbage Detox Soup
Make a filling meal of this veggie-packed soup with a baked potato or your choice of protein on the side (if not both).
Instant Pot® Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Instant Pot® Chicken Tagine with Butternut Squash and Spinach
Butternut squash adds subtle sweetness to our Instant Pot take on chicken tagine. Spices like cinnamon, cumin, paprika, coriander, garlic, and ginger are essential to this aromatic dish.
Pressure Cooker Pork Tenderloin
"I was amazed at the pork's tenderness in such a short cooking time," Jane Guzauskas Ruby says. Marinating it in olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt for eight or more hours does the trick.
