Introducing the most delicious Vegan Baked Beans you will ever eat! Perfectly cooked from scratch in the Instant Pot, you will never want to buy canned baked beans again. No pre-soaking required! They are sweet and savory, with just a touch of heat, and make the perfect addition to any barbecue.
I’m having so much fun with my Instant Pot lately. Do you have one yet? I honestly don’t like having many extra kitchen appliances and tools (for example, my Kitchen Aid mixer is somewhere in the garage right now), but I’ve had my Instant Pot for about a year and a half now, and it’s become one of my favorite things! I use it all the time, so it was definitely worth the purchase.
I know, I know, these beans are not actually baked so maybe they should have a different name. But you guys, they taste like they were baked in the oven for hours!
You start with a pound of dried small navy beans. Rinse and drain them. No need to soak!
Next, your going to cook the beans in 6 cups of water for an hour. Let them naturally release their pressure, and drain them.
In the Instant Pot, saute your onion and garlic for a few minutes, then add the sauce + beans. Cook for 15 minutes and voila! You’ve got the best baked beans you’ve ever tasted in your life!
Luckily, this recipe makes quite a bit! So freeze some for future meals, or store in the refrigerator and eat them all week long.
But what should I eat with my Vegan Baked Beans? I’m glad you asked!
