In today's busy culture it's hard to eat a good, quick, easy and nutritious meal, especially if you have a family to feed. With Lisa Hyde’s Instant Pot Vegan Cookbook: 10 Ingredients Recipes To Help You Save Time & Money, you will discover how to cook quick and easy nutritious meals that your family will enjoy. What is an instant pot? It's a multipurpose pot that ranges from a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté and browning pan, and a crock pot to a warming pot. This appliance does it all. Also, it not only saves time, but is an energy-efficient appliance that saves money by cutting down on your utilities and your food budget. Lisa gives a variety of recipes using approximately 10 ingredients where you can prepare breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts - the cookbook has it all, but remember the dishes are all vegan.
This is a great way to introduce back to basics cooking. I've never used an instant pot, but I have used a rice cooker, crock pot and a slow cooker, and have been able to benefit from the easy conventional way to prepare a meal by just throwing everything in the pot and, either overnight or when you return home, you and your family have a beautifully cooked meal. Personally, I believe that our bodies need a break from eating meat continually as there are other ways to get full and to get an adequate amount of protein. Lisa showed so much diversity in this cookbook in how to use an instant pot, from making hot chocolate, potato broccoli soup, squash curry, beans and rice, plantain pineapple pudding, and so much more. The beauty about this cookbook is that you can be a novice or advanced cook; either way the recipes are quick, easy and healthy. I plan on trying a few myself soon. To your health.
