Pressure Cooker Breakthrough! And a Giveaway!

After last week's guest post by Chef Aj on her single most important kitchen appliance, her pressure cooker, and the unbelievable warm response and conversation about the topic, I just had to break out my pressure cooker over the weekend. I also spent some well needed time reading up on just how pressure cooking works. 

That and cooking up two pressure cooked recipes. The first, a Cauliflower-Potato Curry from Lorna Sass's book Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure (here's the recipe and here's a similar recipe with no fat) and the second, Chef Aj's 8 Minute Split Pea Soup. Both dishes were OUTSTANDING (yes, I am yelling, they were that good) and we have been enjoying them for lunch and dinner all week.

I'm officially a convert.

That means I need recipes. Lots of recipes.


So I turned to the next most obvious place for vegan pressure cooked recipes--Jill Nussinow. Literally, an expert on this thang. I ordered up her book The New Fast Food on Amazon.com and can't wait to make my pressure cooker a regular part of my week. I'm not scared anymore, now that I finally understand how and why the thing works.


This is Jill. And Jill has graciously offered to do a giveaway of an e-book copy of her book, The New Fast Food. The book includes everything you need to know about pressure cooking, plus tons of vegan pressure cooked recipes. Once you read the first few chapters, you will release all of that insecurity about it (if you are one of those still fearful) and go to town with your "new boyfriend."

I love giveaways.


And this one is so easy.

Just leave a comment, about anything you wanna say. Anything.  What's on your mind right now? Let's see what happens.

Or maybe you want to mention a favorite pressure cooked recipe that you have made in the past? Something outstanding. I'm looking for suggestions people!

Make sure when you leave your comment, you input your e-mail address into the Intense Debate comment system. That way I can contact you if you've won. 

One winner, picked at random.
