  • 0.5 oz pinto beans
  • 0.5 oz black beans
  • 0.5 oz lentils
  • 0.5 oz split peas
  • 1 oz kidney beans
  • 2 oz chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 oz ham
  • 1 tsp garlic ~ 1 clove, finely chopped
  • 2 oz onions finely chopped
  • 2 oz carrots diced
  • 1 oz celery diced
  • 1 oz corn
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp coriander finely chopped, more if desired


  • Gather the legumes in a bowl and soak them overnight. Alternatively, you can measure out 16 oz of mixed canned legumes for this recipe, rinse them well, and set aside.
  • Select the “sauté” mode on your Instant Pot. Add olive oil, heat it for 1 minute, then sauté the ham in there for 1 minute.
  • Add garlic, onion, carrot, and celery. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the drained (or rinsed, if you’re using canned) lentils, beans, corn, bay leaf, and butter, and stir around a couple of times.
  • Add chicken broth, close the lid, and switch the steam handle to “sealed” position. Select “meat stew” mode and adjust the timer to cook for 25 minutes.
  • Place a kitchen towel or a piece of cloth over the valve (so the steam doesn’t get everywhere), and turn the steam handle to “venting” position. Stir in salt and pepper.
  • Ladle the soup into serving bowls and sprinkle with a generous amount of coriander.
