The easiest way to cook dry beans. This simple method uses an electric pressure cooker (Instant Pot) to cook dry beans in under 90 minutes (no soaking required).
Rinse the beans and pick out any undesirables (stones, etc.)
Add the beans to the Instant Pot.
Add all the ingredients, ending with the water.
Lock the lid on and set the Instant Pot to Manual, High Pressure for 30 minutes (for black beans and pinto beans) or 40 minutes (for chickpeas). The valve on top should be set to Sealed.
Once the beans are done cooking, let the pressure release naturally for 30 minutes before releasing the remaining pressure (use a hot pad holder or towel) and opening the lid.
Remove the aromatics (bay leaves, onions, garlic). Drain and rinse the beans, if desired. Or, you can store or serve the beans with some of the liquid. <--This all depends on how you plan to use the beans. If you're storing the beans in the fridge (or freezer), I recommend storing the beans in some of the liquid.
