Vegan Pressure Cooking on the Road [Carrot Cake Oatmeal]

by JL Fields on March 19, 2014

Greetings from Illinois! I’m back “home” for a few days because I’ll be on the Western Illinois University campus today. My alma mater has invited me to speak at the Women’s History Luncheon, as well as to a few classes, – ranging from women’s studies classes to the College Student Personnel Administration graduate program (where I earned my Masters Degree) – and it’s a true honor! The dietetics program will be making vegan recipes from Vegan for Her for the luncheon. Awesome, right?!

I arrived Sunday, however, because my family lives close to WIU and it was a chance to hangout with my sisters, niece, and nephew. We were busy, busy, busy Monday running wedding-related errands (I’m officiating my niece’s wedding in June) but Tuesday I had to get back to work with my individual and corporate clients. We all hung out close to home, though, and I had the chance to use my sister’s pressure cooker to make yummy vegan food that they enjoyed, too.

My sister recently read about a carrot cake oatmeal recipe in a newspaper and we decided to make our own.

For lunch I made Potato and Pea Enchiladas

but I’ll have to share the recipe in a few days because I have to dash and talk about all things vegan at WIU!

    When you say bring to pressure….what pressure number? Thanks!

      Lee, I mean high pressure so if you’re using a PC with a 1 or 2, it’s 2.

    I’m surprised you don’t have a PC stashed in every city across the country 😉

    What great timing for your post on oatmeal! I was just talking to my husband about cooking the steel-cut oats overnight but now I will brushing off my pressure cooker!

    What a great honor to speak at your alma mater and visit with your family!

      @dawnplantpoweredpassionista:disqus, I didn’t know you use a pressure cooker! So cool!
