New Years Black-Eyed Peas over Brown Rice

Thai-Style Vegetable Curry

I adapted this recipe to remove the oil and cut down on the coconut milk, and I replaced the green beans the recipe called for with chickpeas. My family really loved this quick and easy, pressure-cooker dish.

Curried Split Pea Soup

Susan’s serving suggestion: I like this recipe with cauliflower added. After removing the lid, I add about 1 pound of chopped cauliflower, replace the lid, and heat over low heat until the cauliflower is just cooked, about 5 minutes. This also works with frozen chopped cauliflower.
