Mexican Rice and Black Bean Casserole (Vegan, Instant Pot)

I found this recipe at My Plant Based Family. I love it as I can make one meal for all of us. 

  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 1 cup uncooked dry beans
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 6 oz can of tomato paste (or 1 8 oz can tomato sauce with slightly less water)
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt (optional)


  1. Dump all of the ingredients into your pressure cooker and stir once or twice.
  2. Close the lid and cook on manual for 28 minutes.
  3. Once done, allow the pressure to come down and open carefully. If you are in a hurry you can do a quick release.

My Notes: 

  • If you use a different bean you may need to adjust cooking times
  • This makes a side dish, topped with tomatoes and avocado it makes a yummy rice bowl, or throw it in a tortilla for a adds cheese and we're all good to go with a nutritious, quick meal.
