Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"

In this beautiful and accessible book, the irrepressible JL Fields reinvents 'fast' food healthfully, deliciously, and passionately. And she proves beyond a doubt that this is not your grandma's pressure cooking." - Victoria Moran, author of Main Street Vegan and director of Main Street Vegan Academy"

Whether your pressure cooker is one of your favorite appliances, or you're only just thinking of buying one, this beautiful and informative book is for you. Filled with delicious, easy-to-make recipes and wholesome ingredients, Vegan Pressure Cooking truly deserves a place on your bookshelf." - Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, bestselling author of The 30-Day Vegan Challenge and The Joy of Vegan Baking and more"

Mention an interest in pressure cooking and there's a good chance you'll hear a horror story about one exploding. With modern equipment, that scenario is highly unlikely, according to Fields (coauthor, Vegan for Her). Before diving into the recipes, the author addresses this fear by answering frequently asked questions and addressing the care and proper use of contemporary appliances. Fields also offers cooking time charts for simple grains and beans. Demonstrating the pressure cooker's versatility, the author moves on to cover breakfast, sides, soups, stews, dinner, and even dessert with dishes such as apple pie steel-cut oats, lemony artichokes with horseradish butter, jackfruit and sweet potato enchiladas, and coconut gingered black bean brownies. Readers will swallow any lingering apprehensions after looking at the many tempting photos. Occasional less-common ingredients like freekah and turnips, along with twists on ordinary meals such as savory oatmeal or Asian-inspired chili, will appeal to adventurous cooks. VERDICT This work should gain Fields many fans. Her un­intimidating approach takes into account all the important basics without being overwhelming. Those who want to adapt favorite plant-based recipes for their pressure cooker will appreciate the more comprehensive coverage in Jill Nussinow's The New Fast Food." - Library Journal"

With a great book like this one, the pressure cooker may soon overtake your microwave's place as the quick meal-maker appliance in your house!" - Dr. Neal Barnard, M.D., Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine"

Making vegan meals fun, accessible and delicious - that's what JL does best. And in this book, she completely demystifies the pressure cooker, which means you can have healthy plant-based meals in - literally - minutes. Vegan Pressure Cooking is a must-have cookbook for any busy, health-conscious cook, whether you are already vegan or are taking steps toward more plant-based meals." - Virginia Messina, MPH, RD, co-author of Vegan for Life, Vegan for Her, and Never Too Late to Go Vegan
