Vegan Pressure Cooking

Say goodbye to long cooking and preparation times. With a pressure cooker, you can cook filling, nutritious meals in under an hour and with little mess or cleanup. It's not only delicious, but easy too! With Vegan Pressure Cooking, you'll learn all of the ins and outs of pressure cooking--including why there's no need to be scared of trying something new! From choosing a pressure cooker that suits you best to understanding the ingredients that are perfect for pressure cooking - including beans, grains, hearty vegetables, and more.

Today’s post merges my two great kitchen loves: pressure cooking and air frying.

The pressure cooking devotion likely comes as no surprise to any of you. I posted my first original pressure cooker recipe here over five years ago. I now have over 90 free pressure cooking recipes right here on the website and of course my book Vegan Pressure Cooking: Delicious Beans, Grains, and One-Pot Meals in Minutes came about over a year ago. In the past two days I’ve used the pressure to make:

  • spelt berries
  • black beans
  • brown rice
  • steamed vegetables
  • vegetable broth

I remain cuckoo for pressure cooking.

Recently, an air fryer came into my life. I have used it every single day since placing it on my kitchen counter. Like the pressure cooker, it’s speedy. Unlike the pressure cooker, this convection method offers up crispy food – a terrific yin to the pressure cooking yang.

I recently brought the two together for terrific results. I’ve used a go-to polenta recipe for years that features dill and nutritional yeast. After seeing a baked polenta idea, I decided to give it a go in the air fryer. And it totally worked.

I made the polenta (recipe below) and divided the 2 1/2 cups cooked polenta into three parts. [click to continue…]
