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!!!

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 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.

Love this cookbook! This is the perfect to go with my Instant Pot. Love the dishes I have made with this. The only change I make with the recipes is leaving out the oil. I follow low fat plant based diet and these recipes are tasty and compliant with that one tweak! Healthy and easily found ingredients, tasty outcomes.

I wanted to like this book but I was put off initially for several reasons:

1) The evangelical nature of the author's praise for pressure cookers and for whole food. We get it. We (obviously) own a pressure cooker and we (obviously) want to cook whole food. We bought your book!

2) The dismissal of electric pressure cookers and the scant information give re same. I own both a stove top and an electric pressure cooker. My electric pressure cooker is able to brown/sear prior to switching to pressure mode, something that the author is unsure/dismissive of.

3) I found the recipes I've tried so far bland. Admittedly the book only arrived three days ago and I've only cooked two recipes.

4) I found the overview of pressure cooking at the beginning of the book to be badly written, boring and overly long. I am familiar with pressure cooking and am not scared of the pressure cooker- something the author spends an inordinate amount of time/space harping on about in my opinion. Made me start to wonder if I should be worried. The author writes for an entry-level and I found her tone condescending and patronising. This is a personal opinion.

5) The black and white photographs I found dull and somewhat depressing/cheap/ channeling a 70s stereotype of "healthy" food.

I need to spend more time cooking from this book and cast my initial impressions into the background. I will amend my impressions if and when necessary by editing this review.
