Easy Vegan Black Bean Recipes

This vegan Mexican black beans recipe is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family.

I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

Instant Pot No Soak Mexican Black Beans for Easy Meal Prep

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat.

 I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.

Do I Need to Soak Black Beans Before Cooking Them in the Instant Pot?

No need to soak your beans! The pressure cooker perfectly cooks them without needing them to soak in water overnight.  I cook all my beans in my Instant Pot, and never soak them before hand.

  • 1 lb dried black beans no soaking required
  • 1 sweet onion finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 6 ounce can green mild chiles
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • Juice of 1 lime about 1-2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro


  • Add the black beans, onion, garlic, bell pepper, paprika, cumin, chilis, salt, and water to the Instant Pot.
