Boring Beans No More!!! [3 DELICIOUS RECIPES]

36



[ OPEN FOR RECIPES] You guys asked for it – here are 3 simple but delicious bean recipes for you to try! I make a giant batch of beans every week but change up the seasonings every time, so feel free to mix and match these ingredients and experiment a bit yourself 🙂 Making dried beans is awesome because you don’t have all of the extra sodium and preservatives, and it’s usually around 3x cheaper too!

My Instant Pot = http://amzn.to/2ewaUyx
* FAQ – You can NOT use a rice cooker or slow cooker for these listed times. You also must use dried beans, they can’t be canned
// 1. SPICY SMOKY BEANS
2 cups soaked pinto beans
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 red onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp chipotle powder

(1) Soak your beans overnight – rinse/clean the dry beans, then place them in a large bowl with 4-6 cups of filtered water and 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (optional). Cover and leave in a cool place, then drain before you use them
(2) In your Instant Pot, combine the soaked beans with the remaining ingredients
(3) Seal the iPot and set a timer in the “Manual” setting at “High Pressure” for 20 minutes
(4) Let the iPot release pressure for 10 minutes before manually flipping the switch from “Sealing” to “Venting”
(5) Store in a container in your fridge for up to 10 days

// 2. FIESTA BEANS
2 cups soaked black beans
1 red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp Cumin
½ cup chopped cilantro/coriander stems*
1 small jalapeño**
Juice + zest of one lime
* FUN FACT: Cilantro stems still have the same amount of flavor as the leaf portion, so because the pressure cooker will be cooking them down to be really soft, you can use them instead and save the leaves for other recipes!
** If you do not add the seeds from the jalapeño, the beans will not be as spicy

(1) Soak your beans overnight – rinse/clean the dry beans, then place them in a large bowl with 4-6 cups of filtered water and 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (optional). Cover and leave in a cool place, then drain before you use them
(2) In your Instant Pot, combine the soaked beans with the remaining ingredients
(3) Seal the iPot and set a timer in the “Manual” setting at “High Pressure” for 15 minutes
(4) Let the iPot release pressure for 10 minutes before manually flipping the switch from “Sealing” to “Venting”
(5) Store in a container in your fridge for up to 10 days

// 3. CHEESY CHILI BEANS
2 cups soaked red kidney beans
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 onion
½ cup nutritional yeast
1 ½ tbsp Chili powder

(1) Soak your beans overnight – rinse/clean the dry beans, then place them in a large bowl with 4-6 cups of filtered water and 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (optional). Cover and leave in a cool place, then drain before you use them
(2) In your Instant Pot, combine the soaked beans with the remaining ingredients, except for the nutritional yeast
(3) Seal the iPot and set a timer in the “Manual” setting at “High Pressure” for 15 minutes
(4) Let the iPot release pressure for 10 minutes before manually flipping the switch from “Sealing” to “Venting”
(5) Stir in the nutritional yeast. I decided to add this after the beans have cooked because I find it sometimes loses flavor with heat, and it will also help to make the beans thicker!
(6) Store in a container in your fridge for up to 10 days

  2. Wow Caitlin! I love how your so creative, bubbly and so beautiful aswell as being my total inspiration! I'm looking into health at highschool and you are such a lovely person thank you so much for making these videos 😊😃

  3. Does anyone have any tips on cooking lentils? They're such amazing foods, high in protein, fibre and 1 of your 5 a day so I want to include them more in my diet, but I'm not sure how to cook them!

  4. Absolutely love this video!!! I eat some type of bean every day, but I never thought of cooking a big bunch of them for the week. This is gonna save me sooooo much time since I am a college student and work almost full time as well and I just got a new puppy!! I did use my pressure cooker once before to cook beans and I added corn, lentils, and cut up green beans to it and a lot of seasonings and it was delish!!! I combined all of that with some cold veggies and made me a little bowl of goodness! I love mixing warm comforting beans or rice with cool and refreshing vegetables. Love all your videos, can't wait to try these bean recipes :)

  5. you should visit Tanzania one day. Before going, I was worried I wasn't gonna be able to eat very well cuz i was vegan. But it was surprisingly super easy! Their food mainly consists of beans and rice! It was super delicious too :)

  6. The other day I made a "lazy burrito bowl", aka stovetop rice and beans (seasoned while cooking), stirred in salsa towards the end, and topped with sliced avocado!! Super easy one pot meal to those working on the stovetop!

  7. I need help!!! I soaked my beans for 18hrs and i am cooking them now with some smoked paprika and garlic powder BUT THEY HAVE A SLIGHT SOUR SMELL!!! IS THIS NORMAL?!

  8. Ok someone should help me out. I need general tips that have worked for many ppl. Im about 155cm(5'1) and I weigh 51kg (112lbs) Im a really small person so Im trying to get down to 45kg (99lbs) I.e Im trying to lose 13lbs (6kg) my lowest weight was 48kg(106lbs). I want a slender look. Help me out guys! any realistic tips that have worked for you?

  9. Wow thanks for these recipes I think I will finally try out dry beans 🙂

    And I'm also in love with my Instant Pot 😍😍😍

    Just a question: How long will the beans be good in the fridge after cooking? :)

  10. i ve read that you need to change the boiling water 3 times for you not to have gas problems
    that s what what my mom does
    it takes time but i never in my life had problems from it
    :)

  11. Is it too watery or the beans will absorb the liquid later on? Because the beans on your insta don't look that watery! Anyways, this video gave me so much inspiration on how to make my beans more interesting and of course best for days when I get super busy with school work. Thanks Cait<3
