  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic minced (about 1-2 cloves)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups dry black beans
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable bouillon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Optional Garnishes

  • pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • vegan sour cream (I like Tofutti)


  • Sauté onion, celery, and carrots, and oil in Instant Pot for about 5 minutes. Add cumin, red pepper flakes, and garlic, and sauté another 2 minutes. Deglaze the pot with the balsamic vinegar.
  • Add beans, water, bouillon, and salt, and stir contents of pot.
  • Pressure cook on high pressure for 50 minutes. Do a quick release when done.
  • If desired, blend 1/2 of the soup to make it smoother. Serve with toppings such as vegan sour cream and pepitas.
