Vegan 101: The Pressure Cooker–The Vegan’s New Best Friend
By JL Fields on May 23, 2011
I bought a pressure cooker last fall after I read this post by my friend Gena. It. Changed. Everything. I was terrified to use it at first (memories of my mother shooing us out of the house when she canned tomatoes came flooding back). Now? I use it all the time. I rarely buy canned beans. I’m cooking with grains like millet and farro. I’m making split pea and lentil soups with kale and cabbage . Truly, the pressure cooker is a game changer. I even started creating pressure cooker recipes (check out a link to my latest pressure cooker recipe, a vegan risotto, at the end of this post) !
I overcame my fear of the pressure cooker and started getting creative with it when I started reading Jill Nussinow, The Veggie Queen, for tips and tricks. I was so excited when she announced her latest cookbook that I wrote to her and asked her to consider contributing to the Vegan 101 series–she said yes!
Jill Nussinow is a Registered Dietitian who has been teaching people how to cook with plant foods for the past 25 years. She has been teaching people to use and love the pressure cooker for more than 15 years. She uses her pressure cooker almost daily. Check out her website at www.theveggiequeen.com.
