  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large shallot quartered and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups tomatoes with juice diced
  • 1 cup dry cannellini beans soaked for 8 hrs or overnight, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup carrots diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley or 1 tsp dried
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme or ½ tsp dried
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh oregano or ½ tsp dried
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube or enough for 1 cup of broth
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup grated gruyere cheese


  • Heat the oil in the removable cooking pot. Once hot, add shallot and garlic and sauté stirring often for 1-2 minutes until starting to soften, but do not brown.
  • Crush tomatoes lightly with your hands and add to the pot.
  • Stir in beans, carrots, celery, herbs, paprikas, pepper and bay leaf.
  • Whisk together water and flour until dissolved and stir into pot.
  • Secure and lock the lid and turn the pressure regulator knob to PRESSURE. Set the time to 35 minutes at HIGH pressure and start.
  • When the cooking time is complete, release the pressure using the natural release method.
  • Add bouillon cube and stir to dissolve. Remove bay leaf and season with salt to taste.
  • Scoop beans into individual oven-proof cocotte dishes or large ramekins and divide gruyere cheese evenly over the tops. Broil for 3-4 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Serve immediately with crusty bread.
  • For a vegan option, omit the cheese or top with a vegan cheese option.
