  • 1 ½ - 2 teaspoons kosher salt 

  • Freshly cracked black pepper to taste 

  • 1 (14.5-ounce / 410g) can crushed tomatoes

  • 3 tablespoons (50g) tomato paste

  • Gremolata Topping

    • 1 large handful of Italian flat-leaf parsley (leaves and stems)

Recipe Notes

* Cover the beans with 6 cups (about 1.4 L) water and 2 teaspoons kosher salt. Soak for 8 hours or overnight, then drain and rinse them under cold water

** I use the large side of a box grater. if you don’t have a grater, just dice the potatoes.


  1. Pour the vegetable broth into the Instant Pot. Add the soaked and drained white beans, shallots, garlic, celery, grated potatoes, cumin, paprika, the bouquet garni, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.

  2. Pour the crushed tomatoes and scoop the tomato paste on top of the other ingredients, but do not stir, allowing the tomatoes to sit on top (this prevents the tomatoes from blocking the Instant Pot’s heat sensory and burning).

  3. Secure the lid and set the Pressure Release to Sealing. Select the Pressure Cook setting at high pressure and set the cook time to 12 minutes.

  4. While the stew is cooking, prepare the Gremolata Topping. Roughly chop the parsley. Using a Microplane, grate the garlic directly over the parsley and zest the lemon on top of this mixture, taking care to not zest the white pith underneath the skin. Mix the garlic and lemon zest into the parsley and chop until everything is finely minced. Sprinkle with a bit of the coarse or flaky sea salt.

  5. Once the 12-minute timer has completed and beeps, allow a natural pressure release.

  6. Open the pot and taste for seasonings, adding more salt as needed. Transfer the stew to individual bowls, and top each with some gremolata. If desired, squeeze a little fresh lemon juice and drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, and serve with whole grain bread. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
