Today I’ve been doing a lot of research on future articles while my stomach grumbled—I’m ignoring it for now. But for some reason I’ve been fantasizing about all kinds of quick meals that I wanted to make tonight for dinner. And if it’s a quick, nutritious meal, then it’s bound to have a pressure cooker involved (at least in my house). So I realized that I could share some of these recipes with you. The first two are made in a pressure cooker, the other two are made simply in regular pans. They are recipes that I would make from my pantry for the most part. So I hope you enjoy them. Bon appetit! Lentil and Rice Goulash 1 pound of Italian sausage (hot flavored preferred) ½ cup of dehydrated onions (or 1 fresh, chopped) 1/3 cup of freeze dried diced red and green bell peppers (or one whole fresh one) ½ cup dry lentils ½ cup uncooked rice (brown is really good with this recipe) 1 and 2/3 cup of chicken broth (I just use that which I made from pressure cooking a whole chicken) In a pressure cooker, brown the sausage until no longer pink. Then add all of the other ingredients.  Place the lid on the pressure cooker and then bring to high pressure. Cook at high pressure for about 7 to 9 minutes. Serve hot. Yummy! S’more Chicken 6-8 pieces of boneless chicken thighs 2 tablespoons of butter 1 medium diced onion or 1 cup of dehydrated onion 1 garlic clove, minced 1 cup water ½ cup soy sauce (I prefer Mr. Yoshida’s Gourmet Sauce) 1 pinch of salt 1 pinch of ground black pepper 1 teaspoon of nutmeg (I prefer fresh ground) Cooked rice of your choice In the pressure cooker brown the butter and onions and garlic until soft.  Then add the remaining ingredients. Cook on high pressure on high for 10- 12 minutes. Release pressure. Then serve over cooked rice. Prostituto (This is so named supposedly because it’s what the Italian prostitutes made for their “johns.” Cheap and easy.  I call it delicious!) ½ cup olive oil 6 anchovy fillets, chopped 1 garlic clove, chopped 2 teaspoons of oregano 2 teaspoons of basil 2 tablespoons of capers, drained 12-14 black olives, coarsely chopped 2 cans of crushed tomatoes In a large skillet, warm the olive oil and then add the garlic and anchovy until the garlic is tender. Add all remaining ingredients. In a separate pan, boil enough spaghetti or linguine for 4 hearty servings. When finished, drain and toss into large skillet. Mix well and serve with your cheese of choice. Fall Alfredo Pasta 2 tablespoons of butter 1/3 cup of dehydrated, chopped onions 1 clove of garlic, chopped 1 cup of milk (powdered milk is fine to use in this recipe) 1 tablespoon of corn starch 1 cup of parmesan cheese ¾ cup of canned pumpkin 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley 1 teaspoon of nutmeg (I prefer freshly ground) ¼ teaspoon of black pepper In a medium sized skillet sauté the garlic and onion until soft on medium heat. Add the milk and the cornstarch and whisk until well blended. Stir this mixture until thickened. Add the cheese and mix well. Then add the remaining ingredients. Serve over cooked pasta of your choice.

These sound good. I’ll have to try them.

I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for the recipes! I forgot to put my roast in the oven yesterday and didn’t want to pressure cook it, so went with the lentil/rice goulash last minute and it was very well received by me and dad, the kids weren’t too hip on the lentils, but they’re pretty hard to please. 🙂

Is there anyway you can create a “print” option for the recipes? I can’t seem to mark and copy them either.

Nope. You’ll need to print the entire page. We need to protect our copyrights and this is the only way to even remotely do it.
