I can only second what others have said about the fish not being a good candidate for the pressure cooker. (I am new to pressure cooking and I absolutely love it.) I would make up a pot of beans, rice, or grains and vegetables in the pressure cooker, and saute the fish in a pan. It just takes a minute, then you can place it on top of or next to your grains and veggies. I believe I will give that a try myself!

I am finding the best pressure cooker recipes on I have a couple of cookbooks but they are both too complicated. Maybe later, after I have more experience.

We had ham and beans (a healthy version) for dinner tonight. I didn't soak the beans, the dish cooked under pressure in 25 minutes, and it was absolutely delicious. I've also made mushroom and butternut squash risotto which was delish. Last night I pressure cooked a spaghetti squash and it was a disaster. I cooked it too long and it fell apart. The stuffing that I made had to be combined with the squash as a casserole. :) Live and learn.

Cooking fish in the pressure cooker in not a good idea, it will turn into a mush. Meat with bones cook very well in the pressure cooker. I used to eat goat meat , and my father always made goat curry in the pressure cooker and it used to be so good ( just melt in your mouth).
Don't eat meat anymore but use lots of beans and it's all done in the pressure cooker.Veg stew also can be made in pressure cooker

Fish is so quick cooking that using a pressure cooker for it, IMHO, will result in a very mushy or rubbery product. Vegetarian dishes are likely to focus on lentils, beans, or grains (steelcut oats) that take a very long time to cook normally.

You have started my favorite subject. I have 5 pressure cookers in different sizes.
Start experimenting, you can cook lentils, beans, chick peas, black eyes peas. All of these take 2 hours to cook otherwise, pressure cooker cooks them in 40 minutes.
I always soak my beans overnight , lentil don't need to soak. If you are using pink lentils those cook without the pressure cooker in 20 minutes.
I normally boil the different kind of bean in pressure cooker then season them any way I want. Normally with ginger-garlic, onion cumin and garam masala and onions.
Try some Indian recipes online for lentils(Dal) you will find something which you like.

Hi all! I got a pressure cooker for christmas and I was wondering if anyone had any low carbish vegetarian (fish allowed) favorites for it? I'm ready to try new things with it.
