• Curried Split Pea Soup

    I don’t have a picture of the soup I made tonight because just as I was about to post it, my camera battery went kaput. But I can tell you that it came out spectacular AND once again, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my pressure cooker. I can’t believe I went so long without one. I used it twice today. I made brown rice for lunch, and then later in the afternoon I made Curried Yellow Split Pea Soup from Susan over at the fatfreevegan blog. Her recipe is actually based on a recipe from Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna Sass. I made a few slight changes. I added one small diced jalapeno pepper and I used homemade vegetable stock (which I made in the pressure cooker when I first got it a few weeks ago). I also cooked it in the pressure cooker for 10 minutes instead of 6. Actually, I quick-released the pressure under cold running water, but when I found that it wasn’t finished cooking, I brought it back up to pressure and cooked it for another 4 minutes. Then I let it sit on the stove so that the pressure could decrease naturally. Oh, how I love my pressure cooker!

    Its great to see you’re including lots of waffle recipes. I just found your blog today. I’ve been making my own waffles using a comercial mix and experimenting with different additions. For example, I have to use rice milk instead of regular non-fat milk because I just recently was diagnosed and need to cut down on the lactose for a few months. This past weekend, tried adding flaxseed as well as brown rice protein powder to the mix. The waffles came out with a “whole grain” taste that was quite good. I think that I like it better than any of the commercial frozen waffles.

    Ah yes, flax seeds. When I remember, I try to sneak them into anything I can. And homemade waffles are so good, aren’t they? It’s amazing how much we can create the real thing at home, instead of buying prepackaged commercial versions of the foods we love!
