  • 1 lb dried black beans (about 2 cups), no need to soak
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 cups water


  1. Rinse and drain the beans and pick out any stones or bad, cracked-looking beans. Set aside.
  2. Add the water, sea salt, and beans and stir.
  3. Cover and seal the Instant Pot. Cook on HIGH pressure for 35 minutes. When the timer goes off, allow the steam to release naturally for 20 additional minutes.

  4. Remove the lid. Enjoy warm or let cool completely and store in individual containers.

Recipe Notes

These beans are intentionally NOT seasoned so that you can use them in any recipe, from Black Bean Brownies to Black Bean Soup. If you want to eat them right away, be sure to season them AFTER they are tender, as salt can interfere with cooking.
