Instant Pot Three Bean Meatless Chili (WFPBNO)
This recipe is adapted from one I found on the awesome WFPB blog, Clean Food Dirty Girl (see post for link). I tweaked it out and made a chili that was a bit more robust for a football lovin’ crowd! Feel free to spice it up with cayenne pepper or hot sauce! NOTE: If you opt not to use lentils, you can decrease cooking time in your pot to 10 minutes high pressure.
  1. Soak lentils in water for at least an hour, then rinse well.
  2. Drain and rinse beans, and set aside.
  3. Set pot to Saute.
  4. When pot heats up, add onion, celery, pepper, and minced garlic.
  5. Saute for three minutes, adding splashes of water to prevent sticking
  6. Turn off pot.
  7. Add all spices and stir well.
  8. Add beans and lentils and stir well.
  9. Add soy sauce and tomato paste and stir well.
  10. Add two cans of diced tomatoes on top, but do NOT stir. This helps prevent burning.
  11. Add water, but do not stir.
  12. Replace lid and set vent to Sealing.
  13. Set pot to Manual High Pressure for 30 min, or press Soup preset. If you are not using lentils, set the pot to 10 minutes instead.
  14. When timer goes off, use a quick release for pressure.
  15. Stir well, and serve.
  16. Enjoy!
