    Great flavor, but the asparagus and half of the peas (probably the ones touching the broth) were mushy. The other peas were perfect. I’ll try it again either with thicker asparagus or will release the pressure as soon as it locks.

    I made this with green beans instead of peas and it was delicious! I know some people commented that peas came out too soft but grean beans along side the asparagus was great! I’ll make this again for sure.
