5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent range of recipes and information, 15 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure (Hardcover)
I just bought my first pressure cooker and, having no experience of using them, I needed a cookbook so bought this one. I'm a vegan so tend to eat lots of pulses and grains. I have loads of recipe books and find that I usually only try a few recipes from each book - most of the good vegan recipe books are American and sometimes the ingredients are difficult to find. However, this book is the exception. There are no hard-to-obtain ingredients, and alternatives are suggested for some ingredients. The recipes are not complex and the actual cooking instructions are clear and foolproof. So far I've tried 3 recipes and all have turned out perfectly - not bad for a total beginner - which I'm sure is down to the instructions and advice in this book. I'm certain I will be trying most of the recipes over the coming years.

As well as the recipes, the book has useful cooking time tables inside the front and back covers for beans and grains (good idea to place them here!) and lots of advice on shopping for and storing ingredients. There are no photos - but I've got loads of recipe books with photos and never found them essential.

As a Brit, it would have been nice to see a translation of quantities (US "cups" used for measurement) but it's easy to find this info out and I've finally decided to buy myself a set of US cup measures anyway. Another useful feature would have been a list of the UK names of beans - Lima beans (US) are Butter beans (UK) - but really this is a minor quibble as this is a US publication.

I'd go so far as to say that if you're a vegetarian with a pressure cooker, this is the one book you should buy. In fact the recipes are so good even non-vegetarians would enjoy them (off to eat some more of my Lousiana Red Beans now!)

I was actually on you tube for ideas on pressure cooking (a gift from my dear cousin-in-law) and this book was featured! I am also a vegan and eat mainly pulses so was inspired to cook for less time. Thanks for the review
