Instant Pot Not Red Beans Not Rice

Keto / Low Carb / Instant Pot / Gluten Free / Easy / Medium Spice

I am a sucker for warm comforting spice and this serves that up. This dish has a nice warm heat that hits the spot on a cold day. It is made with black soy beans but if you avoid soy, feel free to omit them. Nothing better than a hearty and EASY meal for dinner! This recipe is written for the instant pot but can easily be accomplished on the stovetop or in a crock pot.


  • 1 Tbl Avocado or Olive Oil
  • 1 C Diced Yellow Onion
  • 1 C Diced Celery
  • 1 C Diced Green Bell Pepper
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 3 Cans Black Soy Beans
  • 2 lb Smoked Sausage (Andouille, Mennonite, Polish)
  • 3 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 2 Bay Leaf
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Dried Parsley

  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

  • 1 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum

the how to
