Author: Brittany Williams


  • 2 tablespoons salted butter or ghee
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey or pork sausage
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 4 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 8 oz chickpea pasta
  • 5 teaspoons cajun seasoning
  • cayenne pepper, for serving
  • green onions, for serving


  • Pre-Heat your Instant Pot using the SAUTE function. When the display panel reads HOT add the butter, bell peppers, onion, sea salt, and black pepper. Sauté for 3 minutes, stirring periodically, then add ground turkey and minced garlic. 
  • Cook the until the turkey has browned, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, broth, coconut milk, chickpea pasta, and cajun seasoning. Stir to combine.
  • Put the lid on the pot and turn the vent valve to the SEALING position. Press CANCEL and select the MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK function. Use the +/- buttons to set the pot for 4 minutes.
  • When the pot is finished cooking open the vent valve to quickly vent the pressure. Once the pin drops remove the lid, press the CANCEL button and let sit so that the noodles absorb all of the yummy juice. It will be a bit soupy when you remove the lid, the longer it sits and cools the more water is absorbed. Top with cayenne pepper and green onions or chives, Enjoy!
