Another great way to use a pressure cooker: Quick Homemade Stewed Tomatoes

From the Page

There are many, many new recipes on the board so be sure to keep checking. Last week I had several tomatoes that needed to be used up ASAP.  Fortunately, I also needed to make a new bean dish with tomatoes for the book so I used it as an opportnity to get creative with my pressure cooker. If you want to remove the peel, place the tomatoes in boiling water for 1 minute and then immediately transfer to cold water. Add onion, garlic and green pepper and saute for five minutes. Add tomato, basil, oregano, pepper flakes, salt, sugar and water to the pressure cooker and stir. Lock the pressure cooker in place and bring to pressure. Reduce heat to maintain pressure (allow the jiggly top to gently rock back and forth). Cook at pressure for 15 minutes. Quick release the pressure (carry the pressure cooker to the sink run cold water over the lid – avoiding the valve – tilted at a slight angle). Add onion, garlic and green pepper and saute for five minutes. Add tomato, basil, oregano, pepper flakes, salt, sugar and water to the pan and stir. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. I can tell you now, however, that my omnivore husband says it’s one of the best things I have ever made.  I shall credit the stewed tomatoes. I fell in love with my plant-based diet ...
