How to make Instant Pot Summer Vegetable 15 Bean Soup
Time needed: 9 hours.
Want to make this yummy soup? Here’s what you’ll need to do!
- Rinse, sort, and soak beans
Rinse your beans and sort, removing any imperfect beans. Place beans in a large bowl or pan and cover them with water by at least 2 inches. Let the beans soak for 8 hours, or overnight. This step will really cut down on your cooking time!
- Pressure cook the beans
Rinse beans one more time before adding them to your Instant Pot. Note, you will want to use a 6-quart or larger pot for this recipe. Cover the beans with the 8 cups of chicken broth and stir. Set your Instant Pot to high pressure for 15 minutes, with a 5-minute natural release. Carefully release the remaining pressure after the 5 minutes has elapsed.
- Meanwhile, prep your vegetables
Wash your vegetables and chop into bite-size pieces. Note, if you are using zucchini, be careful not to chop the pieces too small, as they will soften quite a bit during cooking.
- Final cook, finish, and serve
Stir in the fresh vegetables, tomato paste, and the can of diced tomatoes. Cook on high pressure for another 4 minutes, with a quick pressure release. Remove the lid and stir in the ham flavor seasoning packet and salt and pepper to taste. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and fresh chopped parsley. Enjoy!
Crissy’s Tips for Success
- I highly recommend soaking the beans ahead of time for this recipe. Giving them 8 hours (or overnight) will really cut down on your cooking time and it seems to produce a better result.
- You can use any summer vegetables that you prefer for this recipe. If you choose harder vegetables like carrots or potatoes, you may need to increase the second cook time. Try to choose vegetable combinations with similar cooking requirements.
- Don’t skip using the ham seasoning packet in the bag of 15-Bean Soup! This adds a lot of flavor!
- Finishing with a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh parsley brightens the dish and boosts the freshness factor.
- This recipe will require at least a 6-quart Instant Pot. With that said, since vegetable quantities may vary, just be certain never to fill your pot up past the max fill line!
