It can sometimes be difficult to tell if the food advertised in cookbooks is all it is made out to be. Food can be made to look good in pictures, but in real life might not taste so good. I thought it would be a neat idea to try putting the unique cookbook Vegan Under Pressure to the test, as I was so nicely provided with a free copy to send to one lucky winner of our Plant-Smart Living Giveaway. I am pleased to say that the end result of this hummus recipe is great!
There are many vegan cookbooks on the market, but Vegan Under Pressure by Jill Nussinow (AKA: The Veggie Queen) stands out in my mind with its niche focus on making plant-based recipes in a pressure cooker. Immediately, the book title is gripping as this was not the expected implication; but rather the social aspects of veganism can sometimes make one feel, quite literally, “under pressure.” I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book to provide to the Plant-Smart Living audience (if you join in on our Plant-Smart Living Giveaway running until the end of June, 2016!). I quite enjoyed many of these recipes, which I make in my Instant Pot cooker.
