Risotto with Mushrooms and Truffle Olive OilBy Ginny's TeamMaking risotto with mushrooms can be a long and complicated process, but with a pressure cooker, it takes half the time. Risotto is a classic dish with dozens of possible variations; for example, you can add shrimp, pumpkin, and any combination of fresh herbs. One of our favorite versions involves mushrooms and truffle flavored olive oil. It's the perfect earthy complement to the creamy, cheesy rice. Risotto with mushrooms and olive oil will take you about half an hour in a pressure cooker, and is fairly hands-off: no standing over a hot stove stirring for twenty-five minutes!
Fried Rice and VegetablesBy Ginny's TeamUse up all your leftovers and make a delicious weeknight meal with fried rice and vegetables. Substitute carrots, celery, or whatever you have on hand for the mushrooms. If you'd like to add a protein, then look for chicken, shrimp, pork, or even tofu! If you make a big vat of long grain rice on Sunday, this becomes a meal that's easy to whip up on any busy weeknight with the contents of your refrigerator. Just keep eggs, garlic powder, and soy sauce on hand for a tasty, filling dinner of fried rice and vegetables.
One-Pot Cowboy BeansBy Ginny's TeamIf you want a hearty and fulfilling main dish, look no further than one-pot cowboy beans! We love the simplicity of the cooking instructions: simply cook bacon, cook ground beef and onion, and mix everything together in a Dutch oven! The brown sugar coats the beans and meat for a sweet, surprising glaze. Plus, any recipe that calls for a half pound of bacon is sure to be a winner. You can also top the one-pot cowboy beans with any shredded cheese you might have lying around.
