Add some extra flavor to your meal with these Ninja Foodi Black Beans and no soaking is needed!
If you enjoyed these Ninja Foodi Beans, be sure to check out this recipe today for Ninja Foodi Black Beans. It’s going to be the same method that I used previously but this time the focus is on Black Beans.
We love to pair these with Baked Black Bean and Rice Tacos or as a side to our Ninja Foodi Chicken Fajitas.
How do you make Ninja Foodi Black Beans using a No Soak Method?
In the case of this recipe, I used dry black beans and pressure-cooked them for 25 minutes because they were not soaked. If they are soaked, you can actually cook them for 5 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 a 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 Black Beans:
These beans are easy to get creative with, you can add in a variety of ingredients like jalapenos, onions, chilies, and more!
It’s really up to your taste and preference.
I do suggest draining these before serving to remove the liquid.
Remember this recipe does use 1 pound of dried black beans, so you will have a lot of beans to use for a variety of recipes throughout the week or the month.

So if doubling the amount, do you also double the water and time?
Mommy Hates Cooking says
Water may need to be increased but read these tips first, it should just soak the beans so you may not need exactly double the amount. The cooking time should be the same – here are some tips – https://www.thekitchn.com/heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-doubling-instant-pot-recipes-23089108
I just tried doubling this recipe today, and I used 8 cups of liquid for 2 lbs of dried black beans. Hope this helps anyone else who has questions about doubling!
