Recently I went on a hunt for cookbooks that would help me get my thoughts organized about how to use food that I have in storage. My goal was to get our family plan for hard times better organized. I found Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure. The day it arrived in my mailbox I sat down to skim through it. I ended up reading it from cover to cover, which I have never done with a cookbook before. I was mesmerized by the perfect fit I had happened upon. I didn’t expect to find a great solution ...more
I have a couple of hefty shelves jammed full of cookbooks. If I could only have 3 cookbooks, though, this one would make the cut. I use it all the time. Lately my most-used recipe is a simple one, for casserole-style brown rice. The rice cooks (with water) in a glass casserole dish set over (more) steaming water, so it sort of boils and steams at the same time. The result is perfect, nutty, separate rice. My kids didn't even notice when we moved from white rice to brown rice cooked this way.

Recipes are generally vegan (some call for sour cream or parmigiana as a topping, but the main recipe is always vegan as far as I can tell). Nice overview of the types of vegetarian/vegan dishes you can use a pressure cooker for (grain dishes, beans, vegetables, stews). At times seems a bit dated (i.e., says an ingredient will be hard to find that is now mainstream, spices to an Americanized palate). The introduction is invaluable for its instructions on using second generation pressure cookers ...more
I constantly use her quick cooking times at a glance tables. Excellent instructions on how to use and care for your cooker

Thanks to this book I have gotten more use out of my pressure cooker than ever before. The recipes are clear, concise, easy to follow and well-tested. I love making risotto in the pressure cooker now. Is it identical to making it by hand - maybe not - but it is still super good a lot easier and less time consuming. I love this book and refer to it often.
This is an okay cookbook, very US centric (so for those of us in the UK, not so ideal!) and she does appear to think that you have a fridge and freezer the size of a small continent - as I said, okay but in my view not brilliant :(
Get yourself a pressure cooker and this book and you will never need to worry about what healthy vegetarian food you can quickly make for dinner. This book got me through my masters degree and my beloved's Ph.D. When we had no time to cook but wanted fresh, healthy food, this is where we turned.
This book is also a good one for anyone who is interested in pressure-cooking. While the recipes are all vegetarian, the educational aspect of how to cook with a pressure cooker is a good one.

I made two recipes from this book and both were, well, alright. Edible. But, honestly, everything was ultra mushy. I think I'll just keep the pressure cooker for cooking beans fast.
This book, recommended to me by a very Veggie-savvy co-worker, has inspired me to register for a pressure-cooker in my Target Club Wedd registry. Delicious!
No vegetarian should be without a pressure cooker or this cookbook. This book is my bean and grain bible.
excellent and still relevant today. lots of vegan recipes, too.
Great cookbook! I turn to this often, as we are a busy family!
Awesome, mostly vegan, flavorful recipes for the pressure cooker
I must buy this book!
