Vegetable Times for Pressure Cookers

Cooking times are for electric pressure cookers (typically 10 to 13 PSI). Begin timing once pressure has been reached. Release pressure using the quick release method by opening the pressure relief valve in short bursts, or by following the manufacturer's instructions for quick release.
