My family loves Instant Pot Pinto Beans! Being married to a Latino man and learning how to cook from my Mother-In-Law, I had to find a way to continue to eat beans. All Mexican food is served with them and they are a staple in our household. My granddaughter will eat beans and rice all the time if I let her and she isn’t even 3 yet! To create beans that are Plant Paradox approved, first you soak the beans and then you cook them in an Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker. In this process, you only need about a half hour (minus the soaking time) instead of 3 hours for the beans to cook thoroughly.

Soak 2 cups of beans with 1 tablespoons salt for 24 to 48 hours. Then rinse them thoroughly.
