Take all the guesswork out of those first few trips through the steam cycle with one of these start to finish cookbooks, and you’ll have quick and delicious meals that seem that they must have taken hours to whip up.
Dr. Urvashi Pitre, is a keto cookbook author and the recipe creator for Twosleevers.com. "After losing 80 lbs by following a restricted calorie, low carb, keto diet, I use this blog to share easy and delicious recipes from around the world with foodies who enjoy good food but don't always have the time to cook elaborate meals. I use my Instant Pot and Air Fryer a lot, and I enjoy a variety of cuisines, so you'll see lots of recipes from India, Mexico, Thailand, Korea, etc. in the blog. I hope you enjoy the recipes, and I'd love to hear from you as you try one."
My husband and I devised this fairly easy recipe after scouring one of our favorite cookbooks for dinner options. (The book is “Indian Instant Pot Cookbook” by Urvashi Pitre, if you’re curious.) It's a one-skillet stovetop meal that adds potatoes and carrots to make it a filling meal.
What makes a good dish great? It’s all in the sauce, if you ask us. Just think how a tangy dressing can transform a boring salad or how a dry meat dish can be elevated into something mouthwateringly delicious with a spicy marinade or rich gravy. And let’s not forget those creamy cheese sauces that, well, just make everything better.
There's not enough that can be said about the benefits of a low-carb or keto diet. It’s hailed for dropping pounds, reducing hunger, improving blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, managing diabetes and burning more calories. While it may seem like a big sacrifice to cut carbs from your diet completely, there are always ways to substitute ingredients in your favourite dishes with low-carb vegetables.
What am I doing wrong? Maybe it’s the BURN message glaring at you balefully (yes, that means something is burning), or your silicone sealing ring is improperly positioned. I’ve even seen people forget to put the stainless steel insert back into their Instant Pots before pouring in the ingredients. Apart from these kinds of technical difficulties, here are the less obvious things I see all the time.
This recipe takes slightly more than 30 minutes (I promised 30 minutes or less in my book, Easy Keto in 30 Minutes), but this recipe is so good and such a standby in my house, that I decided to include it anyway. Try it, enjoy the ease of not precooking the cauliflower (unlike most other recipes out there), and you'll be happy to wait a few minutes before tucking into these.
Expanding on her recipe blog TwoSleevers.com, Pitre focuses on recipes for fans of sweet treats and desserts who are sticking to a keto diet. She’s tweaked and reworked quick breads, muffins, pancakes, cookies, cakes, pies, and ice cream to be “fat bombs” to keep your macros in balance and prevent craving forbidden ingredients.
If you love pumpkin spice–flavored anything, add this bread pudding to your list. A magical mashup of a pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie and bread pudding, it was created by Urvashi Pitre, the blogger behind Two Sleevers and the author of "Air Fryer Revolution: 100 Crispy, Healthy, Fast & Fresh Recipes". The recipe can be made in the oven, instant pot or air fryer, so you have lots of options, but “no matter what you do, don’t forget the delectable sauce,” says Pitre. It’s quick and simple to make and takes this dessert to the next level.
