  • 1 large onion finely diced

  • 400 g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • Handful of fresh parsley chopped

Instructions
 

  • Combine the beans, water, and salt in the Instant Pot. Leave the pot turned off and let the beans soak for 10 to 12 hours or up to overnight.

  • When the cooking program has finished, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.

  • Return the now-empty inner pot to the Instant Pot and select Sauté, setting the time for 5 minutes.
  • Add the oil, garlic, onion, and celery and sauté until the onion has softened. Add the drained beans, the reserved liquid, chopped tomatoes, oregano, and pepper and stir well.
  • Use a wooden spoon to deglaze the base of the inner pot, then secure the lid.
  • Press the Cancel button to reset the cooking program, then select Pressure Cook again on high for 5minutes
  • When the cooking program has finished for the second time, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
  • Ladle the beans into a serving dish. Sprinkle the parsley and feta cheese, then drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and serve.
