Black Bean Soup in Pressure Cooker

This was fabulous. Easy as can be and so good!

Soak 2 cups dried black beans for between 4-8 hours in 6-7 cups water.

Stir well.

Lock the lid on, and when the pressure gets up to a slow rocking motion of the pressure rocker, time it for 12 minutes. Remove from heat (do not slide it across as it may scratch your cook top!)

Let cool on it’s own.

When pressure valve releases, remove the top, venting away from your face.

I used the immersion blender to blend it up right in the cooker – it turned out nice and creamy with NO added milk or cream!
