I love almost everything that Toula Patsalis included in "The Pressure Cooker Cookbook". It is important to read her instructions carefully. "Bring to HIGH STEAM" is different from "under HIGH heat, bring to HIGH PRESSURE". (I ruined a paella by assuming she meant High Pressure!). This recipe calls for steaming. This is Mediterranean cuisine, suitable for the Lenten season.
