Everyone knows that Mediterranean food is healthy and delicious, and most of us want to prepare meals with Mediterranean ingredients. Emily Paster has adapted dozens of mouthwatering Mediterranean recipes to the Instant Pot®, as well as electric pressure cookers and the popular air fryers that everyone seems to own in her cookbook, Instantly Mediterranean: Vibrant, Satisfying Recipes for Your Instant Pot®, Electric Pressure Cooker, and Air Fryer . The recipes are very appealing, and are suitable for singles, families, and gatherings alike.

The cookbook has instructions for using all three appliances in the beginning of the book, and then goes on to include recipes from all parts of the Mediterranean. Lots of olive oil, olives, rice, tomatoes, pasta, vegetables, and herbs make up the recipes. The instructions are concise and simple without trying to make it difficult. The photographs (there should be more) are excellent, and there is a good variety of recipes. The first recipe I tried from this book was Shrimp with Herbed Orzo & Rice which was done in the Instant Pot and turned out perfectly. The French Lentil Salad with Walnuts & Feta is one that would be perfect for a summer gathering and is delicious, and the Albóndigas (Catalonian Meatballs in Tomato Sauce) are fabulous. The cookbook contains a bit of everything – soups, salads, appetizers, meat and seafood dishes, salads, and even desserts. They have obviously been well tested, since everything so far has turned out perfectly. Some of the recipes have a few too many ingredients, but most go together quickly, especially if your kitchen is stocked and organized.

For those who love their modern appliances and want to add variety and healthy dishes to their diet, this is an excellent cookbook to own.
