A big Hello to all my fellow home cooking chefs!!
Today I have taken one of my favourite pressure cooker recipes to share with you, and it just has to be a delicious soup.
I call the East Coast of Africa home, and here at home winter has arrived, I know Gary (my son in the USA ) always laughs when I tell him it's cold because here on the East Coast people swim in the Indian Ocean all year round .
Any way, enough of that, today I'm going to share with you one of my favorite Pressure cooker recipe's.
Long long ago it used to take more than 3 hours to make a really good soup. But today I'm going to do a soup which I call a full "monty chunky" soup. This soup is packed with fresh veggies, marrow bones, lentils mushrooms, pasta, herbs and spices.
And what's great about this recipe is that it takes 40 minutes to cook and it's also Banting Diet friendly.
Okey dokey, the advantage of doing this pressure cooker recipe is that you only need 4 utensils to complete the process namely: a sharp knife, a cutting board, a wooden spoon, a jug and the pressure cooker. Great hey? You only need to wash 4 utensils.
Let's start by gathering all our ingredients.
All the ingredients are ready so it's that time "Let's start A.......COOKING".
"Pressure cooking is the process of cooking food, using water or other cooking liquid, in a sealed vessel, known as a pressure cooker. As pressure cooking cooks food faster than conventional cooking methods, it saves energy. Pressure is created by boiling a liquid, such as water or broth, inside the closed pressure cooker. The trapped steam increases the internal pressure and allows the temperature to rise. After use, the pressure is slowly released so that the vessel can be opened safely."
"Pressure cooking can be used for quick simulation of the effects of long braising. Almost any food which can be cooked in steam or water-based liquids can be cooked in a pressure cooker.[
Okey Dokey enough of that ,we now know how a pressure works ,it time to cook"
Time to now sit back, put your feet up, switch the TV on and enjoy a beverage of your choice.
There are various ways of serving. The ones below are just a few ideas
History of the invention of The Pressure Cooker.
A 6 quart pressure cooker manufactured by Archibald Kenrick & Sons in England, circa 1890
In 1679, the French physicist Denis Papin, better known for his studies on steam, invented the steam digester in an attempt to reduce the cooking time of food. His airtight cooker used steam pressure to raise the water's boiling point, thus cooking food much more quickly. In 1681, Papin presented his invention to the Royal Society of London, but the Society's members treated his invention as a scientific study. They granted him permission to become a member of the Society afterwards
