Quick Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Dry Great Northern Bean Soup with Stewed Tomatoes and Diced Ham

Even though it was a work day, I still had time to whip up a quick batch of Dried Great Northern Bean Soup with Stewed Tomatoes and Diced Ham using my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Total cooking time was about 45 minutes (that includes time to pressure up and natural release pressure down), not bad for no-soak dried beans! One of the things I like best about this recipe is, it's a great use for leftover ham meat. It simply gets heated up in the soup at the end of the cooking time. There are only 7 ingredients and the flavor gets a nice boost from using stewed tomatoes:@)

Quick Great Northern Bean Soup with Stewed Tomatoes and Diced Ham
1 C dried great northern beans, sorted and rinsed-I get them at Dollar Tree
15 oz can stewed tomatoes
1 can water
2 tsp dried minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
leftover diced ham, as much as you have or would like
  1. Add everything except ham to pressure cooker.
  2. Set to manual 27 minutes, let er 'rip.
  3. Allow pressure to come down naturally. Check beans for tenderness. If necessary cook at additional 1-2 minute increments using automatic release until tender.
  4. Stir in ham and allow to heat through.
  5. Serve with hot sauce if desired.


  1. My Mom was saying she wanted to make soup this week with leftover ham, I'll send her this recipe!

  2. I wish I had some leftover ham! We had BBQ ribs on Sat and everyone left on Sunday so we didn't even cook...I will have to get an Easter ham this week! The leftovers are my favorite part! Your soup sounds good Lynn and I hope you had a super Easter weekend!

  3. Since I didn't cook, I didn't get a ham. I may have to look tomorrow for one on sale. I love ham and beans!

  4. You soup sounds wonderful Lynn! I may need to break down and get an Instant Pot. :)

  5. We fly to New Mexico on Easter so no leftover ham :( But I do have one in the freezer that will be dinner soon—-and there is always need for new recipes after we grow weary of sandwiches!

  6. Love a soup like this now and then. Thanks for sharing your recipe with SYC. Looks yummy!


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
