Keto Instant Pot® Soup (Low Carb)

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"Just a recipe I threw together while entertaining my 6-month-old on a soccer night for my older kiddos when we had limited time. This is an alternative to fast food on busy hectic nights. I prechopped my veggies during nap time, so all I had to do was add them to the Instant Pot®! Garnish with green onions, Cheddar cheese, and bacon."

  1. Turn on a multi-cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)) and select the Saute function. Add olive oil, onion, and garlic; cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Add cauliflower, green bell pepper, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Pour in chicken stock; close and lock the lid. Select Soup function; set timer for 15 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove lid. Add Cheddar cheese, half-and-half, turkey bacon, Dijon mustard, and hot sauce. Reselect Saute function; cook until bubbly, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If using bacon instead of cooked turkey bacon, saute with the onion in step 1.
  • You can use gluten-free flour or cornstarch for a thicker soup (about 1 tablespoon dissolved in a small amount of water or 1/4 cup cold chicken stock), but this would not be keto friendly.

Great soup! Made with real bacon. Sautéed bacon first and then added onions and garlic. No need for olive oil. Skipped the green pepper. Cooked for only 9 minutes on high pressure but did 10 min...

I made this exactly as the recipe says. It is great and makes a good quick lunch or dinner reheated in the microwave.

I followed the recipe but cut the cook time by half as others instructed. It is a good comfort food type soup that I will make again.

Even my husband liked it. He only likes hotdogs and burgers.

I also made just a couple of changes - shortened the pressure time to 8 minutes, didn't add the (regular not turkey) bacon to the soup but just sprinkled on top and also used cream. This was de...
