Instant Pot Beans and Greens (Recipe)


✅ 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1 medium onion, diced

✅ 2 cloves garlic, minced

✅ 2 Tablespoons tomato paste

✅ 1/2 bunch fresh parsley, washed and chopped

✅ 1/2 bunch fresh dill, washed and chopped
✅ 2-16 oz cans cannellini beans, drained, reserve liquid of 1

✅ 1 large bunch of greens, washed and chopped (collards, swiss chard, dandelion greens, spinach, arugula, kale, broccoli raab, beet greens, etc..)

✅ 1-8oz can Hunt's tomato sauce or 1 small can diced tomatoes

✅ A pinch of salt

✅ Black pepper, to taste


1️⃣ Prep all ingredients to be ready to go into the instant pot. Having everything opened, chopped, and measured out is very important for this recipe.

2️⃣ Set Instant Pot to saute. Add extra virgin olive oil and wait one minute to heat up.

3️⃣ Add the onion and garlic. Stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Saute for one minute.

4️⃣ Add the tomato paste, parsley, and dill. Stir until tomato paste starts to incorporate.

5️⃣ Add greens, beans, tomato sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir gently but well.

6️⃣ Cover the Instant Pot and lock it. Set the manual time for 5 minutes. Make sure the vent is set to "sealing" not "venting". Wait for the Instant Pot to do its magic.
