What would I do without my Instant Pot!?! While I prefer to soak my beans for 24 hours, I often don’t plan well enough. I simply rinse them really really well, and then transfer to the IP with fresh water and salt (to taste). 60 minutes on high pressure is perfect for me for most beans and chickpeas. They will be on the very soft side, which I like. Adjust to your liking. I don’t measure…I put a couple inches of dried beans in the bottom and put enough water to make the water level 3x the level the beans are.
