ekovana stackable stainless steel pressure cooker steamer insert pans

I find these stackable insert pans for the instant pot, quite handy. While reading the reviews I noticed references to pot within a pot and did not have to search very hard to find these. Appreciated is the added dimension these stackable pans provide.

The dish pictured above is 1/4 cup Country Choice Organic Steel Cut Irish Style Oats, 1/4 cup Viva Naturals Organic Quinoa, 100% Royal Bolivian Whole Grain, 1/4 tsp of Mommy knows best Pure Stevia Powder Extract Sweetener, 1/4 tsp of coarse sea salt, and a 1/4 tsp of McCormick Ground Cinnamon.

The steel cut oats and quinoa cooked as the eggs boiled in the stacked pans for 35 min. The separation allowed me boiled eggs instead of breaking them into the quinoa as I normally would do without steel cut oats or stackable pans. I tyically use sea salt, pepper, and garlic when breaking eggs directly into quinoa.

This dish adds appoximately 39 grams of protein to my intake today at a cost of 687 calories.



Like seeing roasted meat and other dishes in front of you and suddenly realizing: This is a dead fish. A dead bird. A dead pig. Or that this noble vintage is grape juice, and the purple robes are sheep wool dyed with shellfish blood. Or making love—something rubbing against your penis, a brief seizure and a little cloudy liquid.

Perceptions like that—latching onto things and piercing through them, so we see what they really are. That’s what we need to do all the time—all through our lives when things lay claim to our trust—to lay them bare and see how pointless they are, to strip away the legend that encrusts them.

Pride is a master of deception: when you think you’re occupied in the weightiest business, that’s when he has you in his spell.
