It’s no secret that I love fast and easy cooking methods, and the pressure cooker (or Instant Pot) is definitely a great appliance to have around when you want to make dinner in a hurry.
And since this recipe is meat-free, it actually takes even less time to cook than other stews. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, then don’t worry, you can also make this beet cabbage apple stew recipe in a large pot on the stove (it just takes a bit longer and a bit more effort in making sure the liquid doesn’t run out in the pot).
You can make this recipe as an entree or as a side dish for your meal. The beets and apples add a slightly sweetness to the dish that really compliments the cabbage. I suggest using chicken broth as the base for this stew, but if you don’t have any or if you can’t find any that’s Paleo or AIP-friendly, then water also works fine.
If you’re on an AIP diet or a ketogenic diet, then having good bread is tough! So if you’re looking for a low carbohydrate egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free bread recipe that’s AIP and Ketogenic, then this AIP bread rolls recipe is what you’re looking for!
Because this recipe uses a gelatin egg instead of a regular egg to hold the coconut flour together, you will find that it has a different texture to regular bread. The coconut flour also makes the bread a bit denser and drier, so enjoy it with some extra coconut oil or with some ghee (if you’re ok with ghee in your diet).
If you enjoy shrimp, then give this simple recipe a try. It’s Paleo and low carb/Ketogenic. The sauce that comes with this recipe is a lemon garlic ghee sauce that is really easy to make. The shrimp is dipped in the sauce and then the dish is served with extra sauce.
If you haven’t tried it before, lemon, garlic, and ghee goes really well together, so make sure to keep some of the sauce to serve with.
If you’d prefer not to bake the skewers, you can also grill the vegetables and the shrimp. Personally, I find firing up the grill a bit of a hassle, so I prefer to use the oven. Also, feel free to use whatever vegetables you have available instead of the ones I used for this recipe.
This raw cauliflower salad is super fast and easy to make and enjoy. Just add all the ingredients together and toss. So if you’re looking for a quick side dish, give this one a try.
If you haven’t cooked with cauliflower much, then you will soon discover that they are a very versatile vegetable. They can be used to make cauliflower “rice”, to make creamy mash, to make cauliflower soups, to make roasted cauliflower side dishes, and to make tabouli salad as a couscous replacement.
This raw cauliflower salad is another way to enjoy cauliflower. It’s really quick to make so it’s an easy side dish to make to enjoy with your meal.
This raw Italian cauliflower salad recipe is Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (autoimmune-friendly), so it’s great for meals when you have people on different diets. They can all enjoy the same meal! Enjoy with the Mango Coconut Curried Chicken Salad or if you’re on the Ketogenic diet, try it with the Keto Curried Chicken Salad.
This is a great side recipe in case you’re bored with sweet potato mash or cauliflower mash and want something a bit lighter and more refreshing.
It’s really easy to make, but you should blanch your asparagus shoots before pureeing it and saute the onions for a sweeter flavor. Blanching the asparagus and adding in the lemon juice will also give you a bright green color and a fresher taste.
If you’re not familiar with spaghetti squash, it’s a melon-looking yellow squash that naturally forms golden spaghetti-like strands when cooked.
They’re Paleo, AIP-friendly, and low in carbohydrates (so Ketogenic-friendly as well). Because of the buzz about them in the US media, spaghetti squash can now be found in a lot of US grocery stores (including Whole Foods, Costco, and Walmart – they vary by location).
Per 100 grams of spaghetti squash, there is approximately 5.5 grams of net carbohydrates (7 g carbohydrates, 1.5 g fiber, 2.8 g sugar).
Spaghetti squash is super easy to cook – you can microwave them using these instructions here or bake them in the oven following the instructions below. You can also roast the leftover seeds from inside the squash to enjoy like pumpkin seeds.
I had some leftover chicken breast from making another dish, and I was looking for an easy recipe to make. Since I regularly make my salmon by wrapping it in aluminum foil and baking it in the oven (the foil keeps the salmon super moist), I figured there was no reason why this method wouldn’t also work for chicken breast.
So, if you like moist and tender chicken breast, then give this recipe a try! It’s such an easy recipe, you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried it before. Plus, this recipe is AIP-friendly, Keto-friendly, as well as Paleo.
For an easy appetizer recipe that’s bound to impress, give this refreshing mint avocado chilled soup recipe a try. You can even make it with a magic bullet blender.
The mint leaves help make this creamy soup really refreshing and perfect for the summer months. I also added in some romaine lettuce leaves to make this dish very light and summery. The soup is served chilled and the lime juice in the dish keeps the avocado from oxidizing as well as adds a touch more flavor.
This soup is very filling and is Paleo, Ketogenic, as well as AIP-friendly. It’s perfect if you want something fast – you don’t even need to turn on the stove as you only need a blender to make this.
If you’re looking for a fast and nutritious dinner, then this is a great recipe for you! It’s super fast because the beef and the zucchini are chopped into thin strips so that they cook quickly, and it’s delicious because the garlic, cilantro, and gluten-free tamari soy sauce (use coconut aminos instead of tamari sauce if you’re on AIP) add tons of flavor to this dish .
It’s so easy to make mini burgers loaded with nutrition without the grains. These mini zucchini avocado burgers are quick to make and are Paleo, low carb (Ketogenic), plus AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol). So you can satisfy all the diets with this simple recipe.
You can make these as dinner, as a snack, or you can impress your guests by serving these mini burgers as hor d’oeuvres at your next gathering!

I love the colors in this salad – in fact, that’s what I was thinking about when I was creating this salad. I wanted all the ingredients to be green except for the raspberries – so I added in green olives, cucumbers, as well as salad greens like arugula and spinach leaves. Then I topped it with whole raspberries so that their color would pop out of the salad.
This simple salad makes for a great side salad to your meal and it’s perfect for so many diets – it’s low in carbs (ketogenic) and doesn’t contain any dairy, nuts, seeds, or nightshades, so it’s Paleo and AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol).
If you can’t find raspberries, you can use any other berry instead (e.g., sliced strawberries or blueberries). Also, if you can’t find arugula, you can use any type of salad greens you can find. Hope you enjoy this simple salad recipe!
I love super easy recipes that are also delicious and nutritious of course! And this simple fish and leek saute meets all those criteria. If you’re not currently eating much fish, then give this recipe a try. If you’re scared of cooking fish because you haven’t done it much, then don’t worry, it’s hard to mess up this dish!

While young green jackfruit has been getting a lot of press for its meat-like texture, ripe version has been used in various Asian sweet jackfruit recipes for a long time.
I’ve eaten a lot of fresh ripe sweet jackfruit already broken into segments in various parts of Asia (from Hainan, China, to Chiang Mai, Thailand). Recently, I started looking for ripe sweet jackfruit recipes and I came up with this one, which is based on this Panasa Mulika recipe. I’ve also seen this recipe called by a few other names like Kathaler Mishti Pakora and sweet jackfruit fritters.
You’ll often find bamboo salad dishes at Chinese restaurants as a starter dish that’s served cold. And this Chinese bamboo salad recipe is very similar to those dishes. However, to make it more AIP-friendly, I’ve used olive oil instead of sesame oil and I’ve omitted the chili oil in this dish.
If you’re not on AIP and want to make this dish more traditional or if you just want to spice up this recipe, then try adding chili oil and sesame oil instead of the olive oil.
