Pressure Cook Navy Beans for Easy Meal Prep

While I love the convenience of canned beans, I usually cook dry beans from scratch in my pressure cooker – the texture is better and it’s more affordable.  I use a larger 7.5-Quart Instant Pot which is larger than the standard model so I can batch cook more at a time. 

If you don’t already have one, the Instant Pot works wonders for cooking dried beans fast, no soaking required! While canned beans are super convenient, they are often loaded with sodium.  If you buy canned beans, I always recommend using a no salt added variety so you can control the amount of salt in your dish. 

Next time you reach for the canned beans, think about investing in a pressure cooker instead! Homemade beans are incredibly cost efficient, and you can add seasonings and spices to the beans while they cook for extra flavor.

What’s In These Creamy Navy Beans in the Instant Pot?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Dried Navy Beans – I like buying beans in bulk and storing them in jars in my cupboard. Dried beans are less expensive than canned which make them super budget friendly!
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Bay Leaves: I always add bay leaves to every bean soup I make… it gives the soup a deep flavor which is savory and delicious!
  • Low Sodium Vegetable Stock – I like to use this low sodium vegetable stock for my recipes because it has great flavor… without all the salt. I always use low sodium or no-salt-added broth or stock to start, and then I can add salt or other spices later if needed.

How Do I Make These Pressure Cooker Navy Beans?

1. To the Instant Pot insert, add the dried beans, garlic, bay leaves, olive oil, and vegetable stock.
2. Seal the lid, and set to Manual/Pressure Cook mode for 30 minutes.
3. Once finished, allow the beans to naturally release for 15 minutes. Carefully quick release the rest of the steam and remove the lid. Discard the bay leaves and enjoy!
Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
 
Along with my Instant Pot Black Bean Recipe, these navy beans are super easy to start in the pressure cooker and walk away from.  The Instant Pot does all the work, and you reap the benefits without constantly stirring or watching a pot boil on the stove.  This “passive cooking” is my kind of meal prep!
