Shannon Bowie Persha says:
This was super simple, and delicious!!! The broccoli was cooked perfectly!
Sal Polisi says:
I make a batch of broccoli, green beans, and carrots in my pressure cooker on a regular basis now. Sometimes I'll pair it with rice or a protein. I like that it doesn't cook out all the nutrients like it would if I were to boil it. I like to season it with garlic powder, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper. This recipe it really quick and easy to eat healthy.
Gina Anastasia says:
I can't tell you how many times I've cooked vegetables in the microwave out of sheer laziness. This recipe is truly perfection in that I can toss my FRESH veggies in the pot and they will cook in mere minutes (the time it takes to build pressure). I don't have the facts, but this has to be healthier than me microwaving frozen veggies. This is now the only way I'll cook vegetables.
