    1. Place your pressure cooker over high heat or prepare to saute if electric. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the cooker. Dice up your onion and rough chop the chili. To the cooker, add your onions, chili, smoked paprika, chili powder, and cumin. Stir the seasonings and allow them to toast for a moment. Rough chop the garlic cloves. Now, to the cooker, add garlic canned tomatoes, black beans, lentils, kidney beans, a healthy pinch of salt, a couple cranks of pepper, and vegetable stock and stir. Cover and lock your pressure cooker and set heat to high.
    2. Place a medium pan over high heat. Grab a large bowl and add flour, corn meal, baking powder, sugar, oat milk and a pinch of salt. Feel free to introduce additional ingredients to your batter to trick it up however you like. Whisk to combine. You want a consistency similar to pancake batter. Add a drizzle of veg oil to both the batter and into the pan.
    3. Using a small spoon, add batter to the hot pan making several small cakes. Once browned on one side, after about 1 minute, flip and cook for 1 more minute. Remove cakes from the pan and start another batch. Grab your bunch of parsley and cut off the stem. Chop them fine and sprinkle over this round of Johnny cakes. Flip the cakes. Rough chop the parsley leaves and set aside. Remove the remaining cakes from the pan.
