Kosher Cookbook: 100 Recipes to Nourish Body and Soul
Welcome to the first Instant Pot cookbook to feature kosher food. Paula Shoyer has expertly developed a robust array of both traditional and contemporary kosher recipes for the king of all kitchen appliances: the Instant Pot! Jewish food and the Instant Pot are a natural fit. So many traditional Jewish dishes are soups and stews – prepared before Friday night and kept warm throughout Shabbat, when observant Jews aren't allowed to cook – and that's the sweet spot of the Instant Pot. For decades, Jewish families have relied on slow cookers to achieve the soft, flavor-filled stews of their ancestors, but they lamented the time required. Now, the Instant Pot allows for vastly shorter cooking times without compromising flavor or texture. The "Instant Pot: Kosher Cookbook" includes timeless Jewish favorites tailored to this modern appliance: stuffed cabbage, Israeli cooked salads, corned beef, brisket, cholent, Yemenite and Persian beef and lamb stews, chicken soup, beet soup, kasha varnishkes, tzimmis, even apple cake. There are weeknight meals as well as recipes for Shabbat, Rosh Hashanah, and Passover, along with kosher versions of international classics such as lasagna, sesame noodles, arroz con pollo, Asian noodle soups, and risotto – all expertly and deliciously adapted to the Instant Pot.
