Cooking Tips

Cook in a pressure cooker to save some time and energy. Prepare the pilaf in the pressure cooker pan as above, add the stock and bring to the boil. Add the lid to seal and bring up to pressure on a high heat. Reduce the heat to maintain the pressure and cook for 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to pressure to reduce naturally for 5 minutes. Stir in the Kale and cook with the lid off for a final 5 minutes.
