How to cook Black Eyed Beans in a Pressure Cooker

You may have noticed that I love my pressure cooker!  It has saved me so much money and time since buying it, and I have even considered doing a tally this year of how much I have saved by not buying tins of ready cooked beans. Oh  could go on and on about how much I love my cooker, but this is a back to basics post on how to cook black eyed beans in a pressure cooker (without soaking)

I’m a huge fan of the no soak method as it means that you can grab some beans, get them cooking and have your meal so much quicker and on the fly too.  I love rustling up batches of different bean houmous-es (erm, houmi? lol!) when we decide to leap out for a picnic or fancy a different snack. This means that we wouldn’t have time to soak them so a quick (that is subjective!) bubble in the pressure cooker, time for cooling and then a swift blitz and your snack is ready to be eaten.

So here is what you need to make 600g of cooked black eyed beans. I made this batch for soup!

Ingredients:

1 cup of dried black eyed beans

cold water to the minimum level in your pressure cooker

Method:

Measure out your beans and pick out any grit that might have been included, give them a quick rinse.

Pop them into your pressure cooker.

Fill the pressure cooker to the minimum level.

Securely add the lid to the cooker and select high pressure.

Bring the cooker to the right pressure then reduce the heat to low (but enough to maintain the pressure…I tend to go for 3-4 on my induction hob) and cook for 10 minutes.

Leave to cool naturally and ta-dah!

…and that’s how to cook black eyed beans in a pressure cooker – without soaking!
