However, this is MUCH MORE than a cookbook and this is why it's worth it for me. Kathy goes into all the things you need to know about the IP in a way, frankly, that is much more logical and understandable than most vegan recipes I've found online, and she explains things about the IP better than IP handbook itself in places ("What do all those buttons do!").
There is an IP troubleshooting section, and "Ninja Instant Pot tricks" section and also thoughts on special diet considerations. She breaks down the IP lingo and acronyms in a simple and straightforward way for beginners, but the recipes themselves vary from easy to quite sophisticated. There are some handy extras on the recipes themselves - the recipes are in American measurements but also have the metric equivalents (handy for some of you) and it gives the nutrition information for those of us watching our calorie/carb and protein intakes.
BEST PART: there are pages and pages of what I'll call "reference material" that formerly you'd likely have to google for, making this more than a cookbook but more like a manual - a Bean and Lentil Cooking Chart, a Whole Grains Cooking Chart, and a Vegetable Cooking Chart. I needed these things.
Extras I appreciates in a cookbook with a good "user experience" - an appendix of recipes by course, a list of handy IP accessories, recommended Facebook groups, reading, and other cookbooks, and a very thorough and comprehensive index so it's quick and easy to look stuff up. These are details that mean a lot to me, the internet is filled with recipes, but I really appreciate actual instruction and resources to best use the IP as a Vegan.
This is likely a book I will leave in the kitchen for regular use, rather than put on the back shelf - I'll use to to make sure my cooking times and cooking processes are correct, and also to inspire ideas. It's more than delicious recipes, it's a practical manual.
I was able to start using my instant pot immediately after receiving it because Kathy has basic instructions at the front of the book. This is followed by "five recipes to start you out". I made Not-Refried Black Beans the first night and it sold me on both the instant pot and Kathy's book. I've since made several other recipes such as Kidney Beans in Curry Sauce, Pear Cardamom Steel-cut Oats, Perfect Kamut, and Fresh Tomato Marinara Sauce, and each one has been very good. Most of the recipes are simple to put together, and most use common ingredients so you don't have to make a special shopping trip. She also has vegetable cooking charts and bean/lentil cooking charts for quick reference. I highly recommend this book.
Her recipies do involve the instabt pot but also a lot of cooking and ingredients along with it. So, you may be sautaing, or baking, etc...in ADDITION to using the instant pot in pretty much every recipie. Awrsome if you love cooking or have the time...a nightmare of you don't.
I wanted 1. SIMPLE, 2. Few ingredients per recipie, 3. Variety of whole grain and bean options
And what I saw was 1. Complex (for me anyway) 2. Many ingredients per recipie, 3. Not a lot of whole grain or dry bean choices of recipies.
I apologize to the author for the low review... I just think you should make it SUPER CLEAR on your Amazon explaination what exactly your cookbook is offering and what it isn't. You did a lovely job on it though. They look like great recipies, beautiful pics, good variety of types of meals.
