InstantPot Recipe – No Soak Red Beans and Rice
Before developing this recipe for the InstantPot, I couldn’t find a good recipe for red beans and rice in the InstantPot that didn’t involve soaking the beans. I love a good pot of beans. White beans, black beans, red beans, they’re all good to me. However, my lack of planning can get me in trouble and I frequently decide to have beans too late to soak them. InstantPot to the rescue! I purchased one in February and I love it. After being afraid of it for a month, I got over my fears and started using it. Now, I use it at least once a week.
My crock-pot and I have been friends for many years, but the InstantPot is just so much faster!
