Beans in 10 minutes?
If those four words don’t get your fired up about the pressure cooker, I don’t know what will.
For someone like me who loves to eat, but cooking – not so much – fast, simple and healthy reign supreme when it comes to the kitchen. I’ve been a big fan of the pressure cooker for years (thanks Mom!) for that very reason, and it plays a big role in my whole-foods, plant-based diet and Fit Quickies fitness lifestyle.
But I too have a lot to learn about pressure cooker magic and was excited to get a copy of Jill Nissonow’s ebook, The New Fast Food - 243 pages of recipes, instruction, and tips into all things pressure cooker.
And lucky for us, Jill is giving away a copy of The New Fast Food to a lucky reader right here at plant-based fitness. Find out how below.
Meet Jill Nussinow, the Veggie Queen and pressure cooker expert
In her own words:
I am passionate about pressure cooking since it truly changed my cooking life. I use my pressure cooker almost every day and honestly I have to attribute some of my good health to using it. I can make great tasting food really quickly. Of course, I still have to shop for the best-tasting ingredients such as vegetables and other produce. Turning fresh ingredients and pantry staples into a meal is far easier for me than jumping in the car and purchasing processed food which I avoid when possible.
Jill has been teaching plant-based cooking at Santa Rosa Junior College in California for over 20 years. She also teaches at other cooking schools throughout the U.S. and does cooking demonstrations at farmer’s markets and other events. Her goa? To create vegetable enthusiasm wherever she goes.
