I am still learning my instrument (the voice) and consider myself to be pretty new to singing, as I only started singing in 2013 (8 years ago). Special thanks to my current vocal teacher, Spencer Welch Vocal Studio, and my previous vocal teacher, Mark Downey Vocal Studio.

I am much more advanced on piano than singing, as I started playing piano when I was 3 years old, and I’m 39 years old now! I am excited to be learning the voice and feel that it’s never too late to start learning an instrument. I just wish I had done choir in high school because it is so much easier to learn an instrument when you start when you are young. However I have no regrets and am grateful for my singing teachers for taking me step by step through learning the voice, and have a goal of keeping on track and gradually improving well into my senior years.

How to make Bell Pepper Chicken Rice Casserole with Spinach + Peas in Instant Pot. VR 180 3D Cooking

This video is VR 180 3D, best viewed in a VR headset such as the Oculus Quest 2.

Please subscribe :) youtube.com/geoffmobile

In this video, Geoff from geoffmobile.com shows how to make a Bell Pepper Chicken Rice Casserole with Spinach and Peas in the Instant Pot pressure cooker. This was recorded in 3D 180 VR using the Vuze XR – a 180 3D VR camera.

Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole – Geoff’s version

Cookbook Author Barbara Scheiving writes:
“This casserole has all the flavors of stuffed green peppers. We adapted this recipe from one that takes more than an hour to make in the oven.”

YIELD: 6 SERVINGS

1 pound (454 g) raw ground turkey or raw ground chicken
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 or 3 large green bell peppers, chopped (could use other colors if cheaper)
Handful fresh spinach, coarsely chopped, or a bag of frozen spinach
1 cup of frozen peas
1 can (14.5 ounces, or 411 g) diced tomatoes with juices
1 can (8 fluid ounces, or 235 ml) tomato sauce
1 cup (120 ml) reduced-sodium beef or chicken broth
1 cup uncooked long-grain white rice, rinsed
1 tablespoon (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt (can use less, or omit, if desired)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Important note: Please do *not* stir the pot after adding the rice. Keeping the rice on top without stirring, is a good way to prevent the dish from burning on the bottom.

Select Sauté on Normal heat to preheat the pressure cooking pot. When hot, add the ground beef and onion. Sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beef is crumbled and browned. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds more. Add the bell peppers, tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir the pot. Add the rice on top and pat down but do *not* stir. Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and 4 minutes cook time.

When the cook time ends, turn off the pressure cooker. Use a natural release for 12 minutes and finish with a quick pressure release. When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid away from your face. Add the spinach and frozen peas, and stir the pot. Let the dish sit for 5 minutes with lid askew for the flavors to blend.

Technical notes:
VR 180 3D video was captured in manual exposure setting (shutter 1/60, ISO 200), and exported in Auto/Optimal ProRes 422 from Vuze XR Studio.

For filming cooking videos I highly recommend using manual exposure on the Vuze XR (as the auto exposure often seems to overexpose the ingredients in the Instant Pot in cooking videos).

Live Sound during cooking was recorded using on-camera audio. Voiceover Audio was recorded later, using a Zoom H1 with Sennheiser ME-2 Lavalier microphone. Background music was created by Geoff Peters.

How to make African-Influenced Peanut Stew (Vegan) in Instant Pot – VR 180 3D Cooking Video

This video is VR 180 3D, best viewed in a VR headset such as the Oculus Quest 2.

Please subscribe :) youtube.com/geoffmobile

In this video, Geoff from geoffmobile.com shows how to make an African-Influenced Peanut Stew (Vegan) in the Instant Pot pressure cooker. This was recorded in 3D 180 VR using the Vuze XR – a 180 3D VR camera.

African Peanut Stew – Geoff’s version

Cookbook Author Megan Gilmore writes:
“Loaded with nutrients, African peanut stew has a unique flavor that my family finds addictive. The combination of ginger and peanut butter reminds me of a slightly spicy Thai peanut sauce, with an earthy sweetness from the sweet potato. I use red quinoa in this stew because it retains its texture better than other varieties, but any color will do for the added plant-based protein.”

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced (can use 3 cloves if a larger portion is desired)
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger (2-inch knob) or 1 tsp dried powdered ginger
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks – use larger chunks if desired (can use 3 sweet potatoes if a larger portion is desired)
One 15-ounce can diced tomatoes or a large can of tomato sauce
½ cup all-natural peanut butter
2 teaspoons fine sea salt (optional – can use a smaller amount such as 1/8 tsp or omit entirely if desired)
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, only use if you want a spicy dish)
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed (or could use up to 1 cup uncooked quinoa if a larger portion is desired)
3 to 4 cups water
2 cups finely chopped kale, stems removed, or 2 cups frozen chopped kale (or spinach)

Important note: Please do *not* stir the pot after adding the peanut butter and quinoa. Keeping the peanut butter and quinoa on top without stirring, is a good way to prevent the dish from burning on the bottom.

Directions:

Press Sauté on medium/normal and add the olive oil to the Instant Pot. Once the oil is hot but not smoking, add the onion and sauté until softened, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes. Press Cancel and stir in the garlic and ginger while the pot is still hot.

Add 3 cups of the water, the sweet potato, tomatoes with their juices/tomato sauce, peanut butter, salt (optional), red pepper flakes (optional), and quinoa on top, all without stirring. (The peanut butter will blend in as the soup cooks.) Secure the lid and move the steam release valve to Sealing. Select Manual/Pressure Cook to cook on high pressure for 7 minutes.

When the cooking cycle is complete, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then move the steam release valve to Venting to release any remaining pressure. When the floating valve drops, remove the lid. Stir in the kale, which should wilt quickly.

For a thicker stew, press some of the cooked sweet potatoes against the side of the pot and stir them in until you have a creamier texture. If you like a thinner soup, add up to 1 cup of the remaining water. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed, and serve warm. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week
