  • 1 package (20 ounce) Hurst’s HamBeens 15 Bean Soup with seasoning packet

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 cup onion, chopped

  • 1/2 cup celery, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 quarts water

  • 1 ham bone, optional*

  • 1 can (15 ounces) crushed tomatoes in puree

  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 2 cups spinach, roughly chopped

  • 1 cup diced ham, optional

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Set aside seasoning packet. Rinse beans in a colander and remove any debris.

  2. Select Sauté. Add the vegetable oil, onion, and celery to the pressure cooking pot. Sauté for about 3 minutes until tender.

  3. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute more.

  4. Add the rinsed beans, 2 quarts water, and ham bone.

  5. Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and 1 minute cook time. When the cook time ends, turn off the pressure cooker. Let the beans soak for 1 hour. *Alternatively, you can cook the beans on high pressure for 35 minutes with a 10 minute natural release.

  6. After 1 hour, stir in tomatoes, carrots, chili powder, and seasoning packet. Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and 3 minutes cook time.

  7. When the cook time ends, turn off the pressure cooker. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and finish with a quick pressure release.

  8. When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid. Remove the ham bone. Stir in the spinach, ham, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


  • Use a leftover ham bone from your holiday ham, asked your butcher for a ham bone, use a smoked ham hock from the grocery store, or just don’t add ham. The Hurst 15 Bean Soup comes with a Ham seasoning packet that gives the soup a great flavor.
  • Beans are one of the things that you will need to add more pressure cooking time if you are cooking at altitude.
    • The technical rule is to add 5 percent more pressure cook time at 3,000 feet above sea level, 10 percent for 4,000 feet above sea level, and so on, increasing by 5 percent every additional 1,000 feet.
  • This recipe cannot be doubled in a 6-quart pressure cooker. Never fill the inner pot of your pressure cooker more than half full when cooking beans.
