Recipe Ingredients

Green Beans - Main ingredient and surely the healthiest. It does not require much chopping and is already ready to be used in the recipe. In this recipe, use 14 oz Green Beans but it can vary if you need greater quality of the meal.

Cheddar Cheese - Ideally, 1 cup of shredded Cheddar Cheese but you can add more depending on your craving.

Cream of Mushroom Soup - Adds another layer 0f creamy goodness, with surprising bites of mushroom pieces to bring an instant smile to your face. If you are a Garlic lover, Mushroom soup pairs well with it too.

French Fried Onions - It gets soft sweetness in the dish and brings a rich umami flavor. I would not recommend adding too much of it, and 6 oz would do just fine.   


How to make

The recipe does not demand a big list of ingredients and steps. Just follow these simple steps.

Gather all the ingredients near your Instant Pot.

Add 14 oz of Green beans to the Instant Pot, as the main ingredient in this unique recipe. These should be very fresh and better to cook as soon as you bring them from the shop.

Flood the Green beans with 10 oz Cream of Mushroom soup.

Start the Instant Pot at high pressure for 2 mins. You would start seeing a good shape till then.

Take out the mixture in a bowl and 6 oz of french fried onions to it.

Shredd the cheese carefully with the shredder

Next, add 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, which you can add more if you are an extra fan of it.

Put the bowl in the Instant Pot and air fry the mixture at 390F for 12 mins and continue with your favorite TV show till then.

Congratulations, the Thanksgiving dish is ready to be shared with your family!

Can I use canned beans?

I recommended you use dried beans over canned.

They are substantially more economical, healthier, and have a much better taste.

For how long should the beans be cooked?

Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes to have a soft texture.

Cook at high pressure for 2 minutes to have a softer but firm texture.

Cook at high pressure for 1 minute for a crunchy texture.

Can I store/freeze my green beans?

Cooked beans hold up well! Pour cooled beans into a water/air-tight holder & freeze.

How to prepare fried onions for garnishing?

You can pan-fry the onions in some coconut oil (you can use other oil if you like) until golden and crispy on both sides.

Or you can simply buy from the stores and use it as a garnish for your green beans casserole.
