The Convenience Of A Pressure Cooker

Having a pressure cooker is so convenient. You can conjure up tasty meals in no time and treat your family to tasty wholesome homemade meals even if you have been away all day! With a pressure cooker such as the Cuisinart CPC 600 Electric Pressure Cooker you will have no problems with any meal.

To give you an idea, here is a tasty recipe to try:

Fiery Vegetable Stew

What You Need:

  • 2 yellow onions, chopped
  • 1 T of garlic, chopped
  • 5 1/2 C of chicken broth
  • 2 C Swiss chard, chopped
  • 1 C dried chick peas soak overnight
  • 1 C of dried cannellini beans, soak overnight
  • 1/4 C tomato puree
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 white turnips, chopped
  • 1 fresh red chili pepper, chopped
How to Make It:

  1. Spray the cooker lightly with a non stick cooking spray.
  2. Place the onion and garlic into the cooker.
  3. Cook until just beginning to brown.
  4. Pour the chicken broth into the cooker.
  5. Add the chard, soaked chick peas and soaked beans.
  6. Stir in the tomato puree.
  7. Add the carrots, turnips and chili pepper.
  8. Bring the cooker to high pressure.
  9. Cook for 25 minutes then let the pressure fall on its own.
Stews are a great place to hide vegetables. Cut them into small pieces and they will never know they are there. This stew can be made without the chili pepper if you prefer a not so spicy version.
