If you fear that keepingwill prevent you from enjoying Thanksgiving, do not be afraid. With these to the must-haves of vacation you can indulge in a full decadent meal (turkey, side dishes and even dessert) while preserving the state of ketosis. As an added bonus, the recipes we've put together below can all be prepared in an instant pot.
The side dishes
low carb cranberry sauce
Without cranberry sauce it would not be a Thanksgiving holiday, and the quick and easy recipe of Life Made Sweeter lends itself to a keto diet. All you need are four ingredients (fresh cranberries, monk powder, lemon juice and cinnamon) and 5 minutes to prepare this low-carbohydrate version. Get the Keto Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce recipe.
Cauliflower Puree with Garlic and Chives
High Carb potatoes are a keto no-no, but thankfully cauliflower is a delicious substitute for the all-important Thanksgiving porridge. Loaded with butter, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, chives and garlic, this delicious side is lighter than its tuber-based brothers, but still tastes great. Show it off (it only takes a few minutes to prepare it) and store it for up to three days. Get the cauliflower puree with garlic and chive recipe.
Casserole with green beans by Keto
Casserole with green beans is a retro crowd puller that can hold its own in the series of Thanksgiving killers. This version earns its keto-merit by exchanging traditional carbohydrate-rich ingredients. Instead of fried onions, the soup is canned and replaced with a combination of cream, cream cheese and mushrooms. A layer of bubbling mozzarella cheese adds the finishing touch to this unavoidable crowd pleaser. Get the recipe for a casserole with green keto beans.

The Turkey Breast
Deep-fried turkeys have become fashionable in recent years, but the process can be cumbersome and potentially fire-hazard. Thankfully, you can use your instant pot to make a crispy-skinned, tender-meaty bird without worrying about burning your property. Be sure to purchase an air fryer topper (you can also use it beyond Thanksgiving). No wonder the instant pot is not for a full-size turkey, but a four-pound, boned, skin-covered breast just tastes good and seats about 10 guests. The best part is that you can complete the main event of the evening in just one hour. Get the recipe for the turkey breast with the air fryer.

Low Carbon Turkey Broth
Eating turkey broth without sauce is like eating peanut butter without jelly or watching Rick without Morty – the whole is no doubt bigger than the sum of its parts. The good news for the keto believers is that you can bathe your bird in a delicious, misused pan without taking a cheat day. The key to this low-carbohydrate sauce is the use of xanthan gum as a thickening agent. It is a keto that cooks substantially because unlike flour and cornstarch, the polysaccharide adds zero net carbohydrates. Get the recipe for low-carbohydrate turkey sauces.
Pecan Pie Cheesecake
Enjoy a sweet end to Thanksgiving without having to pack the carbohydrates. Even non-keto fans will enjoy this rich and creamy pecan pie cheesecake, which gets an extra helping of nut thanks to almond flour crust. And with a little instant pot magic, you can make an oven-baked cheesecake in a fraction of the time. Remember, however, that you will need a 7-inch springform for the best results.

Scalloped pumpkin pie cup
They'll yell, "Good pumpkin!" Over these portions of pumpkin-y-luck with an added bonus at the top. Each cup contains the best part of the pumpkin pie – the sweet, spicy custard filling – and while the crust is not included in the equation, a special coating of burning, low-carbohydrate marshmallow fluff more than makes up for its absence.
