About the cookbook
“This cookbook is all about using the Instant Pot to help you put healthy meals on the table despite your busy life,” writes Karen in her introduction. Divided into five chapters, Carnivore’s Cave, Fins and Shells, Slurping Noodles, Steaming Soups and Stews, and Leaves and Roots, No-Thaw Paleo Cooking In Your Instant Pot shows the variety of ways in which readers can use frozen foods to create flavorful dishes.
From Carnivore’s Cave comes a wide variety of fun and multi-cultural dishes that are both easy to make and will bring new flavors to home kitchens, such as Chicken Biryani with only a 20 minute cooking time, classic Korean-Style Braised Chicken, melt-in-your-mouth Braised Beef Shank with Citrus Gremolata, and addictive Dim Sum-Style Pork Riblets. For seafood recipes that are sure to please, dishes like Easy Peasy Seafood Paella, Louisiana Seafood Gumbo, and Mussels in White Wine Garlic Brodo are minimal effort and flavor-packed. Other delicious, no-thaw paleo recipes include hearty Shoyu Ramen, Quick Zoodles Bolognese, rich and creamy Dairy-Free Zuppa Toscana, Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie, and many more. With a selection of dishes ranging from Easy Peasy Coq au Vin to Indian cuisine inspired Vegetable Mulligatawny Soup, No-Thaw Paleo Cooking In Your Instant Pot makes healthy home-cooking easy, fast and exciting.
What we love about this cookbook
This book is pretty big and pretty hefty. There are so so many recipes to choose from that no one can say this book skimps on inspiration. It’s full of beautiful images that make you want to get home fast to get started in the kitchen on these delicious dishes. The colors are so vibrant, you start salivating as you start turning the pages. The text is a really good size font. Especially the ingredients are in bold. This may seem like a funny thing to love about a book. But it is an integral part of cooking to be able to read the recipe while you are multitasking chopping veggies and family members asking you questions about where their socks are.
Who is this Instant Pot cookbook for?
This book is for anyone with a busy schedule, which is basically everyone. Have you ever forgot to unthaw meat? By the time you remember you are already driving home from work. No one is a stranger to this scenario. It can be frustrating when there are a bunch of hungry mouths to feed looking at you to fix it. Instead of ordering food or microwaving something, now you have a healthy option and excuse to use your Instant Pot. These recipes were created for a paleo diet focussing on eating that’s more like what early humans ate avoiding dairy, grains, and legumes.
