In this recipe, I used the instant pot because I wanted to use dried beans. When it comes to a bean salad, starting from scratch like dried beans, makes all the difference in flavour and texture, like in this warming bean salad.

The veggies, carrots, bell peppers and celery are added at the very end to the instant pot keeping the firm to the bite.

the vinaigrette…

The light vinaigrette in this white bean salad is a mix of thinly sliced green onions, apple cider vinegar, oregano, paprika and a hint of garlic. For additional colour and flavour, I added fresh parsley.

Benefits of cooking with Instant Pot 

Save time and energy

Preserve colour and flavour

Retain nutrients

Eliminate harmful microorganisms


What I love about using an Instant Pot is, once you’ve added your ingredients into an Instant pot and sealed it, you set the timer, and you can walk away. Leaving you time to do other things without worrying about a pot of beans, soup or stew simmering on the stove. With a busy schedule like I have, using an Instant Pot leaves me time to do more important things….like golf 🙂

Besides, when it comes to buying canned legumes, they can be costly. So, replacing canned with dried beans is also economical since you can buy dried beans at a fraction of the price than you would pay for canned beans. The best part! It is the flavour and texture, and there is simply no comparison between canned and freshly cooked beans. No more soggy, salted beans.

By using a pressure cooking method, they will have a perfect texture and freshly cooked flavour. For more Instant Pot Gluten-Free recipes, please check out our popular instant pot recipe section. For last minute gift ideas check out our famous shopping page
