Vegetarian pressure cooking?
January 4, 2010 11:56 AM   Subscribe

Give me your best vegetarian pressure cooker recipes.

I just got a pressure cooker and I am excited to use it. I know pressure cookers are great for making beans, but what are your favorite vegetarian recipes for pressure cooking? I'm partial to seitan/tofu/tempeh type stuff, but I don't know whether those ingredients would do well in the pressure cooker. Give me your ideas, please!

The cookbook Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna J. Sass is excellent.

In any bean recipe substitute a sheet of kombu and a little of whatever oil you want for bacon/hock/whatever.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I actually much prefer it. It has no real flavor of its own in something as big as a pot of beans, it just pumps up the umami.

The Fat Free Vegan blog has dozens of great recipes tailored to a pressure cooker.

You should really get the Lorna Sass book though - well worth the price. I especially love her Thai chickpeas recipe.

Thirding Lorna Sass' book. Here are a couple of favourites someone has typed out - potato cauliflower curry and thai chickpeas.

Asparagus risotto (not vegan).

Seconding Fat Free Vegan! I made this Creole Black Eyed Peas recipe earlier this week and it is now one of my top five favorite meals ever. Even my vegan hating brother loved it. I used an entire tbsp of sriracha and it is wonderfully spicy!
