Mac and Cheese
By :The Essential Keto Instant Pot Cookbook by Casey Thaler
Print Recipe
Macaroni and cheese is a comfort food classic, and this Instant Pot keto variation will help to satisfy all those cravings. By using cauliflower instead of macaroni, we stay in ketosis, but still capture the familiar flavor and texture of the traditional dish. Try topping with a little ground turmeric, to pack in even more nutrition. Or, mix with a little bit of cooked lobster, to really add some decadence!

Instructions
  1. Pour 2 cups of filtered water into the Instant Pot, then insert the trivet. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Transfer this mixture into a well-greased, Instant Pot–friendly dish.
  2. Place the dish onto the trivet, and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Close the lid, set the pressure release to Sealing, and select Manual/Pressure Cook . Set the Instant Pot to 5 minutes on high pressure, and let cook.
  3. Once cooked, let the pressure naturally disperse from the Instant Pot for about 10 minutes, then carefully switch the pressure release to Venting.
  4. Open the Instant Pot, and remove the dish. Let cool, serve, and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you would like a crunchier top, carefully place the dish under a broiler for 2 to 3 minutes (or until reaching desired texture).
