  • 6-quart or 8-quart Instant Pot


  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 3 medium carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon mild chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cans beans in tomato sauce (15 ounce cans)
  • 1 can kidney beans drained and rinsed (15 ounce cans)
  • 1 can white beans (15 ounce can)
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (15 ounce can)
  • 1 cup vegetable stock


  • Start the Instant Pot on "Saute" mode and let it heat up. Wait until the screen says "Hot" and then add the olive oil, onion, garlic, carrots and celery.
  • Saute the veggies for about 5 minutes, adding the spices, salt and pepper.
  • Continue sauteing for a few minutes more, just until the spices are fragrant.
  • Add the canned beans, canned tomatoes, and vegetable stock and stir everything together well.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and seal the lid. Place the release valve on "sealing".
  • Cook for 8 minutes on "Pressure Cook".
  • When the Pressure Cook time is finished, carefully turn the release valve to "venting" using a long pair of tongs or another long kitchen tool so you don't burn your hand, arm or face. It's a good idea to do this under an exhaust fan in your kitchen, if you have one.
  • When the pressure has released, open the lid and serve in bowls with some freshly chopped herbs (optional).
