More About the Author

Jill Nussinow was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides in Northern California. She is a Registered Dietitian, freelance writer, speaker and cooking teacher. Her latest book is The New Fast Food: The Veggie Queen Pressure Cooks Whole Food Meals in Less than 30 Minutes. She is also the author of She is the author of The Veggie Queen: Vegetables Get the Royal Treatment cookbook and stars in the DVDs, Pressure Cooking: A Fresh Look, Delicious Dishes in Minutes and Creative Lowfat Vegan Cuisine.

As a young girl she loved red peppers so her mother grew them for her. Unfortunately they turned out to be hot peppers and although they made her sick, she still eats red ripe, both sweet and hot, peppers to this day. Her mother didn't need to ask her to eat her vegetables, as she has always been a vegetable lover.

Her interest in nutrition began when she was in high school and continued throughout school, even as she got a degree in business. When she realized that her father's dream for her to go to law school didn't speak to her heart, she changed course and got a Master's Degree in Dietetics and Nutrition. Her real love was the food part of nutrition. To that end she has been teaching cooking for more than 25 years.

The New Fast Food is changing my eating habits. As a newbie to pressure cooking, I have focused on cooking meat. I love whole grains, too, but my busy lifestyle has kept me from cooking them on a regular basis. This book has taught me to cook whole grains, dried beans and other healthy foods quickly. The recipes are easy to follow and very tasty. My meat-loving husband loves the results. Jill Nussinow explains how to adapt slow cooker and traditional recipes to the pressure cooker. I'm still experimenting and I've overcooked a couple of things, but most recipes have been very successful. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to incorporate healthy foods into their menu.

I have an Instant-Pot (electric pressure cooker/multi-cooker) and I am also plant-based. This cookbook has been extremely helpful for me. Jill gives cooking times for beans, grains, etc. along with cooking tips and provides some excellent recipes...I haven't tried all of them yet, but the ones I have tried, I've made more than once. The book is easy to use and perfect for any type of pressure cooker (stove top or electric). Jill knows her stuff and if you have questions (I have had some), all you have to do is contact her for an answer. The only problem with this book is that the binding doesn't lie flat; if you order directly from Jill's "Veggie Queen" website, you can get a binding that does lie flat. For me, it's the content that is important and Jill delivers! I'd give extra stars if I could!!!

I purchased the PDF book directly from Jill. I have her other book and DVD, so I will warn that I'm already a fan. I like the way she writes...she's like a friend next to me telling stories & urging me along.
The book starts with her history with pressure cookers and then moves into the history of pressure cookers, and finally asks the age old question: what's the difference between a pressure cooker and a slow cooker other then the speed anyhow. (for me, it's that I can realize I haven't gotten my act together for dinner until 4 or 5 rather then preplanning at 8am. Plus, I like the fresher flavors of the pressure cooker...but you're not reading this review for my opinons of pressure cooking)

So, I love how Jill then explains what pressure cooker to buy. We are a 3 person family who don't eat a lot of volume which is very different then the family of four next door with two very hungry teenage boys.

So far, I love her recipe for oatmeal, her guidelines for beans and rice. I personally think my brown rice tastes better in the pressure cooker, oh sorry, i'm going off on how wonderful they are again.

Her recipe for Polenta Stuffed Peppers were divine. I love making them and it's so simple. And her recipe for potato salad & vegetable stews...although I confess to adding meat into them rather than tofu...anyway, this book will inspire you as well as be a good resource if you're working on meatless monday. You won't be hungry.

This is my go-to cookbook for vegan recipes! I call it my Vegan Bible! Those who say it's not for electric pressure cookers haven't tried the book. I have an Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker, and I use Jill Nussinow's book all the time. I love how she states that her cookbook is just a guideline. I usually use what I have or add to it because I like something instead. I don't eat spicy foods so I wouldn't add the hot peppers so I'll change it and add something else. I belong to InstaPot users group G-BOMBS - the nuts and bolts of Eating To Live, and Jill is also on this group. Many top vegan bloggers are on the group and you can ask anything and get great advice. Jill is always there to lend a hand!

I bought this book at the same time as I bought a Fagor 670040230 Stainless-Steel 3-in-1 6-Quart Multi-Cooker and this book assumes the use of a stove top pressure cooker. She just has one page about electric pressure cookers & why she doesn't like them. In the end she says "My recipes ought to turn out fine if you adjust the cooking times for the lower PSI of your electric cooker" but she does not explain how to adjust the times. The recipes I've made so far are not that great but I don't know if that's because of the recipes or because I'm guessing poorly at my PSI adjustment.

I want to thank Jill for putting this extraodinary yet simple document together.

I've been joined at the hip with my pressure cooker, a long time healthy habit, for years. So much so that I have been using it in certain ways for certain purposes, remaining largely in the dark about all the delicious and simple opportunities I'd been missing out on - until Jill pointed them out with such obvious expertise.

Thanks to Jill's book I now have a new list of creative ways to implement my pressure cooker. And I learned a lot more about pressure cooking - so now I know a whole lot more about my old friend.

In The New Fast Food, you'll find what to look for if you are in the market for a new pressure cooker, how to cake for it once you get it (or to treat your old one with more respect!).

Basic guidelines, cooking grains, breakfasts, beans, vegetables, lunch and dinner recipes, unique vegetable dishes and main courses, potatoes, soups, stews, desserts - it's all in there.

5 stars!
