This last week in July marks the half way point for summer. Enjoy spicy black beans in the middle of summer or again in the middle of winter. I’m loving our new base for making black beans in the instant pot. We’re calling it the Golden Base.
New Orleans has a tasty Monday tradition known as Red Beans and Rice. Try our vegan version with stewing bell pepper, onion, carrot, mushroom, and celery with spices (allspice, cayenne pepper, mustard powder and more). The red kidney beans cook perfectly in the instant pot. This is a great alternative to chili.
This time of year Minnesota wild rice becomes more available so this classic creamy, yet vegan, soup slides into our dinner rotation and goes to the top of the list for diner party menu ideas.
How do you make risotto more creamy? Stir in purée squash for the most creamy, cozy, comfort food. Risotto can be time consuming and fussy to make on the stove top. With the instant pot, it becomes an easy weeknight meal.
This delicious Italian vegetable soup, packed with gorgeous carrots and bright green peas is a summer garden celebration in a bowl. The nutty flavor and texture of the orzo is a wonderful contrast to the luscious pesto.
