I adapted this to make in my Instant Pot. I put the beans in the pot and covered with water. I let them soak for about an hour and then put on the lid closed the vent did manual 15 minutes NPR (natural pressure release). While the beans were cooking I sauteed the onions carrots and garlic (and I added some of the inner leafy ribs of celery that I had on hand). When the pressure released on the IP I opened the lid and added the veggies chicken stock and bay leaf. I closed the lid and cooked on manual for an additional 10 minutes. I added the spinach and parsley to the hot soup and stirred until the spinach was wilted. Worked great! Really tasty soup on a cold day. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I was just kind of meh with this soup. I found the taste to be quite uninteresting and didn’t like the texture of the spinach once it was all done. I’m really looking for a great soup recipe for navy beans. I’ll keep looking. Read More

It was a very good soup. However, I used a powder chicken bullion and added the amount of salt called for in the recipe. Ot was way too salty. I added chicken breast and rice to absorb some of the salt and it turned out perfect. Read More

Delicious. I'll be making this regularly. I was looking for a soup that's high in pottasium and delicious, that doesn't have tomato. I forgot the parsley at the end, and I hate olive oil so I used Avacado oil, and vegetable stock instead of chicken. I also didn't buy enough spinach, used 5oz instead of 8. I love the spinach in it, and the fact it has some protein. I just might puree all of it so I can drink it in my car where I work out of. Thanks! Read More
