Creamy Beans Over Toast
- Cover beans with 2 inches of water, and soak overnight in the refrigerator (6-8 hours). Rinse beans and throw away any that float. (If you are in a hurry, you may put beans in a pot, bring to a boil, turn off the heat and let them soak for an hour before rinsing, draining, and going to the next step.)
- Place beans in crockpot with the water.
- Cover and cook on high for 6-8 hours; overnight or all day while you are at work is OK.
- Once the beans are very soft add the garlic, salt, and other seasonings.
- Once salted, beans will not get more tender, so always add at the end of the cooking.
- Simmer salt and seasonings into beans for at least 15 minutes then serve.
- Place beans and water in InstaPot.
- Close steam vent.
- Cook on Bean cycle or Manual High Pressure for 55 minutes.
- Allow to depressurize for at least 15 minutes before opening steam vent.
- Beans should be very soft and squish easily with back of spoon.
- Add the other seasonings and simmer on low for about 15 minutes.
Serve with fresh vegetables or salad for a colorful, nutritious meal. Prepared beans freeze very well, so feel free to double or triple this recipe and freeze the part you don’t need.
