Black Beans



  1. Set Instant Pot to saute. Add oil, onion, carrot, pepper, and celery and saute until onions turn clear.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and lock lid.
  3. Cook on high pressure for 1 hour
  4. Let natural pressure release for 10 minutes, then you may rapidly release pressure.
  5. Scoop out half of the beans and set aside.
  6. Take a stick blender and process remaining soup in the pot until smooth. Return saved beans to pot and stir in.

  1. This isn’t required but I found it added a lot of good flavors. If you don’t have on hand, you can replace with water.
