JL’s book has a great intro to pressure cooking and cooking time charts. There are chapters on beans and grains, soups and stews. one-pot meals, sides, dips and even a few sweets. Before you know it, you’ll be cooking all your meals in your Instant Pot or pressure cooker.
I don’t have a stove-top pressure cooker, but this came out great in my Instant Pot. It reminds me of a faux chicken casserole only with pasta in place of rice. You could use this recipe as a jumping off point. Next time I’m going to turn it into a South of the Border dish with some beans, green peppers, tomatoes, chili powder and maybe even some green chilies or jalapenos.
Let me go back a bit and explain what soy curls are and where you can get them. They are a dehydrated soy product made of non-GMO soybeans. While they look a lot like TVP they are made with the whole soybean and tvp is made from defatted soy flour.
You can see them rehydrated above. They are great in a bbq sauce, mixed in pasta or used in your favorite childhood casserole. I usually chop them up a bit because they are too long to be bite-sized.
I mostly followed the recipe, but I did add 1 teaspoon of a chili powder blend and 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika. I love a little smoky flavor!
