At our house we love bean soup, but there is always so much time involved.  You have to soak the beans overnight.  You have to put them in the cooking pot or crock pot and keep watch for burning or in the case of the crock pot, under cooking the beans.  Enter the Instant Pot.  We will now have bean soup at our house whenever we want.  Now I just wash and pick through the beans and throw them in the pot with everything else, hit the bean cycle, and 30 minutes later it’s bean soup time.  How did I ever survive before the Instant Pot?

Rinse and pick through the navy beans for any that are discolored, broken or floating in water. I just pour them into a colander and work from there.


Set the Instant Pot to saute and put the butter in the bottom to melt.


After the butter has melted, add the onions and garlic and let simmer until translucent.


Add the carrots, and celery and saute for about 2 more minutes.


Add the chicken stock and deglaze the bottom of the pot. Add the potatoes and beans.


Fill the pot with enough water to cover the beans and veggies and add the ham.


Sprinkle in the salt and pepper and give everything a good stir.


Click the cancel button and place the lid on the Instant Pot. Push the bean and chili button and wait for the countdown! You can use natural pressure release if you're not in a hurry, or quick release if you're ready to eat. I did a NPR for 15 minutes and then QR.

Thanks for asking Christy. NPR is Natural Pressure release. Sometimes it’s good to allow whatever you are cooking to have a little extra time with the steam. When you want this, you use NPR (natural pressure release) instead of QR (Quick release).

Made this soup today – I had a few changes, just used dried navy beans and mixed up my own spice mix but the timing on this was SPOT-ON. The beans were perfectly cooked and the soup is delicous!

I love this recipe! Reminds me of the navy beans my mother cooked for our family years ago. The only thing I changed is to sub turnips for the potatoes. Delicious!

Hi. I tryed dry navy beans and all the other ingredients put it in the insta pot on the bean soup button but when the time was done the beans were still chewy. Added more time and still chewy. That was the recipe in the cookbook for insta pot. Any suggestions?
