Ingredients

  • 1 pound dried navy beans or pinto beans
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 2 cups tomato juice low sodium
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 onion minced
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water or vegetable stock if your beans are not pre-soaked

Instructions

  • If using soaked beans, soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain beans and then add to inner pot of instant pot. 
  • Add in remaining ingredients, mix together and place lid on instant pot. 
  • Set on high pressure for 40 minutes if beans were soaked, 70 minutes if beans were not soaked. 
  • Let pressure release naturally and then serve. 

Notes

  • If your tomato juice is not low-sodium, decrease the seasoned salt from 2 teaspoons to 1 teaspoon. 
  • You can soak your beans overnight if you like, the beans will be softer and similar texture to if you are using canned beans. 
  • If you don't have maple syrup, you can instead use brown sugar or honey.  
  • If your family is opposed to chopped onions, omit the onions and add in 2 teaspoons dried onion powder.
  • If you use water in place of the apple juice, you will need to double or triple your maple syrup or sweetener of choice.
  • It is really important to let your instant pot release pressure naturally when cooking beans.
