How To Make Creamy Beans Soup:

This creamy white bean soup is made without flour or heavy cream. To make it creamy, I just used a hand blender to puree the beans.  You can keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days because it’s a dairy-free soup.

To make the most of this Instant Pot Great Northern Bean Soup, I served it with crispy bacon, used chicken broth and some fresh chopped parsley. For those of you that are vegetarians, you can easily change-up the ingredients to turn this soup into a vegan creamy white beans soup by simply using 100% vegetable broth, then finishing the cooked white beans with parsley or any topping of your choice.

Great Northern Beans Health Benefits:

Great northern beans are a lowcalorie and lowfat, and are also a cholesterol-free source of iron, dietary fiber, protein, and potassium. They are an excellent source of low-fat and plant-based protein for vegetarians (and everyone else), and if eaten regularly can help lower cholesterol and regulate blood sugar levels.

Soaking Beans or No Soaking Before Cooking:

Even though Great Northern Beans (like most other white beans) offer a ton of health benefits, the beans can also cause abdominal discomfort or bloating in some people. Soaking the beans can break down the complex sugars than can cause gas.  This will also make them cook faster.

For this Instant Pot Great Northern Bean Soup, I just washed the the dried beans and then started cooking them without soaking them beforehand. If you decide to soak the beans before cooking follow these steps:  First wash the beans thoroughly.  Then put the beans into a large bowl and cover with 2-3 inches of cold clean water.  Set it aside at room temperature for 8 hours, or overnight.
