Instant Pot Ham and Bean SoupInstant Pot Ham and Bean Soup is such a comfy and easy to make meal, that will warm up your soul and give your body the nutrients it needs. This recipe can be easily made with leftover holiday ham, but you don’t have to wait for leftover ham in order to enjoy it. I like to buy the cubed ham for this recipe and make it everytime I crave a hearty and delicious meal. This Instant Pot Ham and Bean Soup is made in a fraction of time when cooked on high pressure. The use of lots of veggies and herbs, makes a huge difference and creates a flavorful and aromatic meal.

Herbs you will need to make the Instant Pot Ham and Bean Soup Recipe:

Adding the appropriate and right amount of herbs and spices to a meal can make the whole difference. Without these, the soup will still be good, but not great, more on the bland side. Adding the right mix of herbs, will make the broth taste amazing and incredibly aromatic. You can use fresh herbs as well, but I love to keep a stocked pantry of dried herbs so I have them in hand whenever I am looking to make something delicious.

What is a 10 Minutes Natural Pressure Release?

A Natural Pressure Release means that the pressure is released gradually. For a Natural Pressure Release, you click on Keep Warm, and wait 10 minutes, after which you open the valve and let any leftover pressure to release. Another option is to Turn Off/Unplug the pressure cooker, wait 10 minutes and after that open the valve. A natural release is usually used when cooking soups, meat in a large amount of sauce, pasta or steel cut oats. This method prevents for any foam from the dish to shoot out through the valve, which can happen during a Quick Pressure Release.
