The easiest way to cook black beans without soaking, right in your pressure cooker. Use in salads, main dishes and soups.
Set to "manual" and adjust the timer to 30 minutes. Make sure the IP is set to high pressure.
When the pressure is released, carefully open the lid away from your face.
Divide the beans into 1,5 cup portions and store in ziploc bags in the freezer or fridge, if using throughout the week.
If you want add flavor to the beans, you can saute garlic and onion (and even peppers!) before adding beans and water to the Instant Pot. Also, season with cumin, bay leaves and of course, salt and pepper.
