Dinner in an Instant: 75 Modern Recipes for Your Pressure Cooker, Multicooker, and Instant Pot by Melissa Clark

Inspired by her viral New York Times article "Why Do Cooks Love the Instant Pot®? I Bought One to Find Out," Melissa Clark's Dinner in an Instant has all new recipes that bring her signature flavor-forward dishes to everyone's favorite countertop appliance.

Dinner in an Instant gives home cooks recipes for elevated dinners that never sacrifice convenience. Beloved for her flawless recipes, Melissa Clark turns her imagination to the countertop appliances that have won American hearts from coast to coast. Recipes include Fresh Coconut Yogurt, Japanese Beef Curry, Osso Buco, Smoky Lentils, Green Persian Rice with Tahdig, and Lemon Verbena Crème Brulee. 
Dinner in an Instant provides instructions when possible for making the same dish on both the pressure cooker and slow cooker settings, allowing home cooks flexibility. Symbols guide the reader toward Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free dinners.
Fresh, approachable, and classic, Dinner in an Instant is Melissa Clark's most practical book yet.

TANGERINE CARROTS WITH RICOTTA, CHIVES + WALNUTS
 
TIME: 30 MINUTES
YIELD: 4 SERVINGS
GF • VEG
 
Sweet carrots get even sweeter when caramelized in butter, then cooked until silky soft in the pressure cooker. The better your ricotta, the better this very simple dish will turn out—for the most deluxe dish, consider making your own (see page 21). Or skip the ricotta and top the carrots with crumbled feta, goat cheese, or even cubed fresh mozzarella. Anything creamy will work nicely. And if you don’t like walnuts, substitute any kind of nut you do like. This dish really benefits from the crunch.
 
½ cup walnuts (or use another type of nut if you prefer)
1 pound carrots, halved or quartered if large, cut into 2-inch chunks
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon fresh tangerine, clementine, or orange juice, plus more for serving
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, lightly crushed in a mortar and pestle or with the side of a heavy knife (optional)
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup fresh ricotta
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
Extra-virgin olive oil, to taste
Flaky sea salt, to taste
 
1. Heat the oven to 350 F.
 
2. Spread the nuts on a small rimmed baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Once they have cooled, give them a rough chop.
 
3. In the pressure cooker, combine the carrots, butter, tangerine juice, fennel seeds, and salt. Cover and cook on high pressure for 2 to 3 minutes, depending on how soft you like your carrots. Release the pressure manually. Turn the saute. function on, and cook until the carrots start to caramelize, occasionally tossing them gently for even browning.
 
4. Transfer the carrots to a serving platter, and toss them with another squeeze of tangerine juice. Dollop with the ricotta, and then top with the chives, walnuts, a drizzle of olive oil, and sea salt to taste.

"[Clark] ensure(s) you don't have to sacrifice flavor for lack of effort."—Tasting Table

"The recipes in Clark's book have a distinctly chef-y flair: think coconut yogurt, osso buco, and green Persian rice with tahdig. When culinary figures like Clark show enthusiasm for a gadget...it counters the idea that such devices are for amateurs only."—Publishers Weekly

"Melissa Clark’s recently released Dinner was the talk of the cookbook world. Her newest book incorporates everything people loved about Dinner, but is geared toward using our favorite easy cooking appliances."—Huffington Post
