2 cups Water

Himalayan salt and fresh black pepper, to taste

Instructions:

– Set Instant Pot on Sauté and put in olive oil, minced garlic, and chopped onions. Cook until golden brown and aromatic, about 2-3 minutes. Turn off Instant Pot.

– Add in the dried beans and rice to the Instant Pot. Pour the vegetable broth and water over the rice and beans, add in the tomato paste and salsa. Stir gently until incorporated.

– Close and lock the Instant Pot lid, and set on Manual mode High pressure for 25 Minutes.

– Once the Instant Pot beeps, let naturally release pressure for 10 Minutes.

– Release all remaining pressure with a quick release, and serve the dish warm with salt and pepper to taste.

You can substitute the black beans for red, kidney, or pinto beans, or even a mix! The pressure time might need to be extended depending on the size of the beans used. This dish tastes great in taco shells and alongside steamed vegetables.
