Tip for making quicker grains and beans: Use a pressure cooker!  Use a pressure cooker!  You don’t have to soak your beans (you can if you want to but it’s not necessary) and your beans and grains are done in minutes. I have written a great deal about my pressure cooker, and created many recipes with one.  You can browse my old posts to read more about my recipes and love for the pressure cooker. I write the online vegan column I Eat Plants for The Journal News (my local paper, for now!). After posting The Top 3 Reasons Why I Love My Pressure Cooker  my food editor asked me to participate in a Twitter Chat about cooking vegan with a pressure cooker – you can find some tips in the chat transcript. I invited a friend over to my house to give her a rice and pressure cooker lesson and we made a video of the experience. I turn to these two books constantly: Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure and The New Fast Food  (both the print and electronic edition).  Disclosure: I have affiliate relationships with each link listed. Just yesterday I decided to reheat the lentils I made in my rice cooker earlier in the week;  I wanted to add a grain to the lentils so I grabbed a box of bulgur and whipped this up in no time. Stir in paprika and salt. Add oil, garlic and water, cover, and bring to pressure. Cook at pressure for 5 minutes. Allow for natural release (no more than 10 minutes). Remove the pressure cooker lid, away from you, and fluff the bulgar with a fork. The pressure cooker really is the way to quickly cook two vegan staples – beans and grains – and to prepare food in bulk. I have said repeatedly, to anyone who will listen, that the pressure cooker is a game-changer for new vegans.
