REVISED EDITION - Now includes imperial and metric measurements
Maria Holmes, author of the AMAZON BEST SELLER "Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipe Book: 30 Easy Set It & Forget It Meals" returns with her newest cookbook: "Pressure Cooker Recipe Book: Fast Cooking Under Extreme Pressure".
Having shared the many advantages of slow-cooking in her last book, Maria is now pleased to share the equally beneficial joys of pressure cooking.
Pressure cookers have been vilified first for their lack of safety and then ridiculed for their crocheting granny recipes. Now equipped with new safety mechanisms, today's pressure cookers are safer than ever. And as you will discover in this cookbook, gone are the days of the bland and uninspired pressure cooker meals.
In addition to cooking foods in a fraction of the normal time with just the push of a few buttons, pressure cookers promise so much more. Completely self-contained, there are models that offer automatic timers and multiple functions, so you can brown meats and sauté vegetables before pressure cooking, perhaps simmer in-between steps, and keep a dish warm after it's done. Some models double as rice cookers, steamers and even slow cookers to seal the deal.
We already know that roasts, soups and beans come out tasty, tender and delicious from the pressure cooker. But today's pressure cookers can do so much more.
Pressure cooking prevents the oxidation of veggies, using the steamer basket preserves the water-soluble vitamins, the sealed top keep the vitamins from evaporating away, and the quick cooking helps to retain more minerals that could be destroyed by longer cooking times. The result will be more flavour, more color and a retention of up to 95% of vitamins and minerals (vs. regular cooking, which only retains about 40%).
Every single recipe in this cookbook has been personally selected, tried and tested by Maria to ensure that each one delivers quick, delicious, and easy to make meal that the entire family will enjoy.
And talking about quick and easy, Maria has ensured that readers will find the exact recipes they are looking for with little to no trouble at all. Thus, she has divided her cookbook into the following seven distinct chapters:
Chapter 1: Appetizers
Chapter 2: Soups
Chapter 3: Vegetables
Chapter 4: Meats
Chapter 5: Poultry
Chapter 6: Seafood
Chapter 7: Desserts
The cookbook also comes with general guidelines for its use, quick reference cooking tips and a comprehensive table of cooking times for fruits, vegetables, meats, and fish.
So if you're ready to discover creative new recipes for making everything from appetizers to desserts while saving time, nutrient and energy, then you will surely enjoy Maria Holmes' "Pressure Cooker Recipe Book: Fast Cooking Under Extreme Pressure".
