Vegan Bolognese Recipe

Vegan Bolognese Recipe

 

Did you know that you could create pasta in a pressure cooker? I didn’t, but our friend Nisha does. She has created an incredibly beautiful, delicious, easy-to-make pasta bolognese recipe. It’s easy. It looks delicious and it cooks in just 5 minutes. Well, that’s the amount of time it takes the pasta to cook, there is a little bit of prep work involved, but it all cooks inside the Instant Pot pressure cooker. Really easy, really delicious.

The Instant Pot pressure cooker looks like a great tool for the kitchen, but it suffered a bit of a setback just yesterday; the pot has been recalled:

Instant Pot is recalling one of its pressure cooker models because it can pose a fire hazard.

The distributor has received 107 reports of the Gem 65 8-in-1 multicooker overheating, including five instances when it caused minor property damage, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

No injuries have been reported.

The recall is for Gem 65 8-in-1 model with batch-codes of 1728, 1730, 1731, 1734 or 1746 printed on the rating label underneath the multicooker.

The Instant Pots, which cost approximately $80, were sold exclusively at Walmart stores across the country and at www.walmart.com between August 2017 and this past January.

People who own these Gem 65 8-in-1 multicookers are advised to immediately stop using them and unplug them. They may be returned to Walmart for free replacements.

“The overheating is the result of a tooling misalignment during the manufacturing process, which created a gap between the bottom of the inner pot and the top surface of the heating plate in the product. This gap can cause the multicooker to overheat and melt on the underside, posing a fire hazard to consumers,” Double Insight, the Ottawa-based importer, and distributor of the multicooker said on its website.

That said, there are many other such pressure cookers available on Amazon which have not been subject to any recalls.

Further, WireCutter reviewed a variety of pressure cookers and their favorite:

The Instant Pot IP-DUO60 is our overall favorite if you’re looking for a super-easy pressure-cooking experience. It’s simple to use and will turn out delicious meals in a fraction of the time conventional cooking requires—you can cook black beans from scratch in 20 minutes, for example. Compared with other electric models, it has more heat settings, and it sautéed our onions better (none of the electric models brown meat all that well). As a multi-cooker, this pot can also function as a slow cooker and a rice cooker (which it did okay, but if you’re a rice snob we prefer our rice cooker pick). If the 6-quart version is sold out, consider the 3-quart or the 8-quart model.
