Vegan white Bean Soup In A Foodi Pressure Cooker
It has been getting colder here in San Diego, it is like I forget that every year around this time the weather gets chilly. Literally all I want to do is cuddled up at the end of the day with Neil, Tater Tot and a hot bowl of soup with my fuzzy socks on and the office playing in the background!
The other night as we were doing just that, I thought about if I could make one of my favorite soups in The Ninja® Foodi™ Deluxe Pressure Cooker! Helping me save time and making clean up super easy. I mean The Ninja® Foodi™ Deluxe Pressure Cooker makes up to 360 meals, a main, a grain, and a veggie all at the same time, in the same pot. Up to 8 chicken breasts, 4 lbs of fries, 7lb whole chicken or 8 salmon filets! Along with the ability to crisps/air fries, sears/sautés, bakes, broils, steams, slow cooks and dehydrates.
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 15 oz. cans organic cannellini beans
- 16 oz of vegetable broth
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 tablespoons of adobo sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- handful of spinach ( optional)
- 1 pinch crushed red pepper ( optional )

First you will want to select the SEAR/SAUTÉ option. and set to medium/low. Press the START/STOP to begin. Allow about 5 minutes to preheat.
Next you will want to add olive oil, onions, and garlic to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Till garlic is a light golden brown.
Next add beans, adobo sauce 1 tablespoon salt & pepper, onion and garlic powder. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes.
Next add vegetable broth and bay leaves. Assemble the pressure lid, make sure the pressure release valve is in the seal portion and let cook for about 10 minutes. Set time.
Next after the pressure cooking is complete, quick release the pressure by moving the PRESSURE RELEASE valve to the VENT position. When the unit has finished releasing pressure carefully remove lid . Add spinach and let it cook down for about 10 minutes, stir.
Salt and pepper to taste ( as I tend to over salt things.)
