30 Gluten-Free Instant Pot Asian Recipes (for 6 special diets!)
When you think of Asian food, what ingredients come to mind? Special sauces? Fresh, vibrant, bold herbs? Savory spices or spices that pack some heat? Sweet and spicy?
Each recipe in this collection includes at least one Asian-inspired ingredient. Whether that be ginger, lemongrass, fish sauce, noodles, rice, Chinese cabbage, coconut milk, rice vinegar, sesame oil, chili sauce… Or fresh herbs like Thai basil and cilantro. Or spices like curry paste or powder, 5-spice, and more!
There’s a little something for everyone in this roundup — sweet, savory, and spicy.
I selected these Asian recipes specially to make sure that they are packed with only real food ingredients. No refined sugar, and no unfermented soy! Instead of white sugar and commercial soy sauce, these recipes utilize natural sweeteners and coconut aminos or tamari.
All of the recipes are naturally gluten-free! To help with your selection, recipes are listed with the dietary category of Paleo, Gluten-Free, Whole30, Keto, Low Carb and/or Vegan so you can easily find the ones that fit your dietary needs. Keep in mind that most Keto recipes are also THM:S.
I've also broken up these recipes into the following categories for easy viewing: Asian Chicken Dishes, Asian Beef & Pork Dishes, Noodles & Rice and Soups, Stews & Broths.
