Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil

Blend together

For beans

  • 2 cups sprouted beans (soak and sprout 1/2 c dry beans)
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  • Blend together the vegetables and spices
  • Meanwhile heat your Instant Pot on Sauté, and when hot, add oil. When that is hot, pour in blended vegetables, taking care to avoid the splatter.
  • Cook vegetables for 3-5 minutes, add beans and water.
  • Cook for 3 minutes at High Pressure, allow it to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes, and then release all remaining pressure.
  • You can choose to use a little soupy, boil to eliminate the water, or add water depending on how you plan to serve this (see article above for details).
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve.

For Stovetop

  • Blend together the vegetables and spices.
  • Meanwhile, add oil to a hot sauce pan. When that is hot, pour in blended vegetables, taking care to avoid the splatter.
  • Cook vegetables for 10-15 minutes to get them well cooked.
  • Add beans and 2 cups of water. When the water boils turn it down to a simmer and let the beans cook. You'll know they are done when you can press a bean between your fingers and not feel a hard core in the middle--same way you know when rice is done.
  • You can choose to use a little soupy, boil to eliminate the water, or add water depending on how you plan to serve this (see article above for details).
  • Garnish with cilantro
