These Hawaiian Baked Beans are sweetened with pineapple, maple syrup, and dates for a delicious vegan side dish that is low in sugar and ketchup-free.

Winter Minestrone

Okay, here comes the beauty of the pressure cooker. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, the recipe will remain the same, but you will need to allow the soup to simmer for at least an hour until the vegetables are soft.

Tuscan White Bean Soup

A couple of nights ago at Fresh Choice they were serving a Tuscan White Bean soup I really liked – so I decided I’d try to replicate it at home in the pressure cooker. Here’s what I came up with this afternoon.

Refried Beans

Brenda’s note: This is a keeper! We were impressed with how nice the beans cooked, soft and perfect; easily mashed right in the pressure cooker when they’d finished cooking.

Provencal Red Lentil Soup

I made this simple soup last night and it was heavenly. Here’s what I did: I didn’t have leeks, so I substituted 2 chopped onions. I made up a mixture of Herbes de Provence following the recipe at the end, and at the very end, I pureed part of the soup using a hand-blender, trying to keep most of the carrot pieces intact. Also, I followed the regular directions, not the pressure cooker ones, because it was such a quick-cooking dish. Definitely a keeper.
