Make a delicious pot of Ninja Foodi Beans without soaking the beans!
Did you know you can make a huge pot of Ninja Foodi Beans without soaking the beans?! This is PERFECT for me because I can never remember to soak beans.
How do you make Ninja Foodi Beans using a No Soak Method?
In the case of this recipe, I used dry pinto beans and pressure-cooked them for 25 minutes because they were not soaked. If they are soaked, you can actually cook them for 3 minutes instead, even quicker if you soak them overnight.
This chart from Ninja Kitchen is very useful in terms of beans, if you scroll to page 4, you will find the cook times for soaked beans, but if you are like me and do not soak them, 25 minutes is perfect time.
How do you cook beans in the Ninja Foodi?
These beans are easy to make in the Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot. All you will need to do is place the dried beans into the pot of the Ninja Foodi along with 6 cups of water and any seasonings you want to add to your beans.
At that point, it’s time to pressure cook for 25 minutes if they are dried beans, without soaking. Once the timer goes up, let them naturally release (do nothing) for 10 minutes. This allows the liquid to simmer back down and will not spew out the nozzle.
That’s all you need to do, it’s as easy as making this Ninja Foodi Rice.
Tips for Making Ninja Foodi Beans:
It’s very easy to get creative with these adding in the flavors you like, if you prefer them spicy, you can add jalapenos and red pepper too. It’s very easy to customize these to your family’s taste!
This particular recipe uses 1 pound of dried pinto beans; however, you can double it with a 2 pound bag, which was just too much for our needs.
This is a great side dish to add to a Mexican-themed food night or a potluck.
