Pressure Cooker Deconstructed Lasagne Soup Recipe

Vegetarian Potato Curry – Yum!

Vegetarian Potato Curry – Yum!

I am a complete novice when it comes to Indian food.  I make a few dishes with curry powder, and I thought adding curry powder to some stuff would be as “exotic” as it got for me – but I was inspired by a book I read and thought a vegetarian potato curry sounded scrumptious (I have never met a potato I didnt like.)

Trying to cut back on portion sizes and calories, having a vegetarian meal once or twice a week is a good habit to pick up.  I keep the toaster size Naan Bread from Costco in my freezer so adding some rice and a piece of bread rounds out a great meal.  If you want to stretch it – add a can of chickpeas and some frozen peas as well :).

Even more adventurous – I didnt really have a recipe – I sort of smooshed a few different things together.  I hope you like this!

Cowboy Caviar – Small Batch

Cowboy Caviar – Small Batch

I found a nice recipe for Cowboy Caviar but honestly – they make SO MUCH and I really didn’t need to have so much in my fridge.  I cut the recipe here and there and it still made quite a bit – great for a couple or small gathering.

Hubby hates cilantro – so I made it optional here.  Use whatever bell pepper you have on hand, I like yellow, orange & red better than green – but green would work okay as well.  I do think that red onion is a must, a regular yellow onion would be too strong.
