Melanie’s Instant Pot Main Dish Lima Beans

3 c. baby lima beans, soaked overnight, rinsed and drained.
3/4 c. celery, chopped
3/4 c. green onions, white and green parts
1/2 c. carrots, sliced
3 c. shiitake mushrooms, sliced approximately 1/4 inch thick
1 roasted red bell pepper, diced
1-2 T. parsley, coarsely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 c. vegetable broth
water as needed
olive oil as needed
salt and pepper to taste

Turn the Instant Pot to the sauté function. Add 1/4 c. water or 1 T. olive oil to the IP. I use water to sauté instead of olive oil. Use whichever you prefer. Add the celery, green onions, and carrots to the IP. If you prefer your garlic and shiitake mushrooms well-cooked, add them now. Sauté the ingredients until they’re soft.
Add the vegetable broth.
Add the lima beans. If you haven’t already, add the garlic and shiitake mushrooms at this point. If your ingredients aren’t covered with liquid plus about an inch above them, add more vegetable broth and/or water.
Lock the lid in place on your IP. Press cancel and then the manual button. Set it for seven minutes. When the IP is finished, turn the toggle to vent (quick release). Be sure to turn the toggle with something other than your finger to prevent burns. After the pressure is released, open the lid. Add the roasted red bell pepper and parsley and stir. Enjoy!
* If you’re using lima beans that haven’t been soaked, add approximately three inches of water above your ingredients and set the pressure for fourteen minutes. When the IP is finished, turn the toggle to vent (quick release).
Serves approximately 4 people.
