These Keto Stuffed Artichokes in the Instant Pot make the most delectable first course or side dish! Low carb and vegetarian too!



  • 4 large globe artichokes
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup water

For the stuffing:

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup superfine blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


To make the stuffing:

  1. Combine the melted butter, almond flour, Asiago cheese, lemon zest, garlic, parsley, onion flakes, bell pepper, salt and black pepper.
  2. Stir well and set aside.

To prep and stuff the artichokes:

  1. Cut the top 2 inches off of the artichokes with a serrated knife.
  2. Cut off the bottom stems so that the artichokes will stand upright.
  3. Thoroughly rinse the artichokes in water, then place the artichokes on a plate and microwave on high, uncovered, for 3 minutes.
  4. Remove and wait until cool enough to handle.
  5. Pull the pink and purple center leaves out with your fingers (if they don’t release relatively easily, microwave for another 2 – 3 minutes) and then scoop out the hairy, bristly “choke” from the center with a spoon.
  6. Rub the lemon juice into the center of the artichokes with your fingers to keep them from turning brown.
  7. Pack 1/4 of the stuffing mixture into the center and between the leaves of each artichoke.
  8. Place wire rack in bottom of Instant Pot and add three quarters of a cup of water.
  9. Place the stuffed artichokes on top of the rack and lock the lid in place.
  10. Set to Manual – High Pressure – 18 minutes.
  11. When all pressure is released, remove the lid and carefully lift the artichokes out with tongs to a serving platter.
  12. Serve hot with additional melted butter if desired.
