Navy Beans (dried)


  • 1 pound dried beans
  • 8 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ onion
  • 2 bay leaves


  • Add all ingredients to Instant Pot (or other pressure cooker)
  • Cook for about 10 minutes
  • If they are too hard after 10 minutes, cook them for an additional 5 minutes


You can finish cooking them in the stew by adding them to the pot earlier than mentioned in the recipe. I cooked a whole pound of dried beans so I could use them for other recipes throughout the week.
