In our busy society finding time to cook a wholesome, nutritious meal for our families is challenging. Between work, and after school activities we are left with a couple of hours in the evening for dinner. When I am on a time crunch I usually put some meat and veggies into my slow cooker before I leave the house. After about five or six hours I have a healthy and delicious meal for my family. Slow cooking is wonderful, however, culinary educator and registered dietitian, Jill Nussinow explains how you can save time, money and prepare a healthy meal with your pressure cooker in her new book, “The New Fast Food, The Veggie Queen Pressure Cooks Whole Food Meals in Less Than 30 Minutes.”
I’ve never owned a pressure cooker but after reading this book and watching the Veggie Queen DVD I am ready to go to my nearest kitchen supply store and purchase one today. I love my slow cooker, but I am not very good at planning meals ahead of time. When using a slow cooker you need to know what you are putting in it early in the morning or the evening before. If you are using a pressure cooker you can plan your meal five minutes before you cook it and cooking time is reduced to 30 minutes or less. This sounds like my kind of cooking!
In “The New Fast Food,” Jill Nussinow shares 150 of her favorite vegetarian recipes all of them prepared in a pressure cooker. Whether you are a frequent pressure cooker user or have never owned one like myself, you will learn more about the benefits of using your pressure cooker in “The New Fast Food.” This book provides information about how to use your pressure cooker, what cooking times are best for the type of food you are cooking, and how to avoid a messy kitchen with only one pot to clean.
