Vegan cooking made fast, fresh, and flavorful with the convenience of a pressure cooker For the growing number of people who eat vegan, a pressure cooker is a blessing when it comes to saving time and enjoying a wider variety of foods on a regular basis. The pressure cooker drastically shortens the cooking times of healthful vegan staples such as dried beans and ancient grains: suddenly hummus from scratch and braised artichokes become weeknight fare. In Vegan Under Pressure, Jill Nussinow shows how to use the appliance safely and effectively, and reveals the breadth of vegan fare that can be made using a pressure cooker, including Roasted Pepper and White Bean Dip, Harissa-Glazed Carrots with Green Olives, Pozole Chili, Farro Salad with Tomatoes and Arugula, Thai Summer Vegetable Curry, a chapter of veggie burgers, Cornbread, Pear-Almond Upside Down Cake, and DIY soy milk and seitan.

In Chapter 4, Grains, Late Summer or Early Fall Vegetable Quinoa Salad utilizes tomatillos (often used in Mexican cooking) for their tart flavor. I love quinoa, so I knew I would love this salad. It also incorporates zingy garlic, sweet red bell pepper & tomato, and refreshing scallions & cilantro. This would be great for a potluck or picnic. Rating: 5/5 In Chapter 5, Beans, Cannellini Beans with Gremolata is high in protein and has great flavor. The cannellini beans become creamy when pressure cooked which contrasts nicely with the gremolata. It reminds me of a coarsely chopped pesto with a crunch from the almonds and refreshing parsley. Rating: 5/5 In Chapter 6, Vegetables, Brussels Sprouts with Maple-Mustard Sauce are a must for any brussels sprout lover like myself. I’ve been eating them since I was little. They reminded me of baby cabbages and I used them in my Barbie kitchen to simulate a head of cabbage. Jill and I agree on having brussels sprouts al dente so you have the crispness of the stalk of the brussels sprout contrasting with the tender leaves. The Dijon and maple syrup gave it a nice flavor of earthy sweetness. Rating: 5/5 In Chapter 7, Soups, Lemongrass Cabbage Soup is a hearty yet refreshing soup. The cabbage and potatoes provided heartiness while the lemongrass added a refreshing touch to the creamy coconut milk base. Rating: 5/5 In Chapter 8, Main Courses, Millet and Lentils with mushrooms and seasonal vegetables reminded me of my childhood. In the 1970s, my mom went on a health kick and bought canned cooked millet to use as her meat substitute. I loved it! My dad thought it was so weird that a little girl would like millet. After my mom lost the taste for it, I would ask my dad to buy it occasionally. It was expensive at the time, so it was a treat for me when he could find it on sale. I also love lentils so combining these into one recipe is just amazing! The addition of seasonal vegetables made this into a meal! Rating: 5/5 In Chapter 12, Desserts, Moist Chocolate Cake floored me when I found out it was vegan, gluten-free, and baked in a pressure cooker. It was moist, chocolatey, and not overly sweet. I love desserts but anything overly sweet just turns me off. The addition of raspberry and powdered sugar made the perfect ending to this cookbook tasting. Rating: 5/5
