Instant Pot Black Beans

Instant Pot recipes are quick and easy; all you do is throw together all your ingredients, put the lid on, set it to the time you want, and then after it's finished, you have your meal. You can set it and then walk away. Your meal will stay warm until you come and turn it off.

The Instant Pot is great for quick 30-minute meals. Beans are among the easiest to set and forget. I wouldn't go far because you want to be able to drain the beans after they're done. The beans should only be left to cool for 15 minutes; otherwise, they will congeal, which isn't very appetizing.


Beans are excellent sources of fiber, essential vitamins and minerals, and plant-based protein (B vitamins, folate, magnesium, iron, and manganese). Beans are the edible seeds of the legume, a staple food in many parts of the world. In developing countries, beans are especially important as they are an inexpensive food source and provide the nutrition people need. Beans are thousands of years old, showing up in Central and South America, where they're still an important staple today.

Instant pot beans are great to add to any dish or eat by themselves by making them into a creamy soup. First, add the beans to a 6-quart Instant Pot. Add water to the halfway mark, and then seal the lid. Press the bean button if you have a bean setting on your instant pot; if not, just pressure cook for 30 minutes. Let the steam release naturally, and then take the lid off. Let it sit for 15 minutes to cool down, and then drain. Use it in your favorite recipes.
