This is an easy to whip up healthy side vegetable dish or could be mixed into quinoa! It is much faster to cook these yellow eye heirloom beans in an Instant Pot because it is much quicker versus the stove but you can still use the stove to achieve this dish.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes + natural release

Yield: Varies depending if this will be eaten as a side dish or mixed into quinoa.


  • 8 oz Yellow Eye Heirloom beans
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 onion
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 25 oz enoki mushrooms
  • Bunch kale stems
  • quinoa
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Prep ingredients - chop onions, garlic, enoki mushroom and kale stems.
  2. In your instant pot - add beans, salt, water, onions, bay leaves and garlic. Set instant pot on high pressure for 28 minutes with natural release.
  3. In the mean time, on medium high heat, add olive oil and sauté kale, enoki mushrooms then set aside to combine with beans later.
  4. Once beans is done cooking, combine with sautéed vegetables to create your side vegetable dish.

Very easy and a lot of protein.




Do not drain green beans, put entire can into a medium size sauce pan. Add the 1/2 cup beef broth and the can of condensed been with bacon soup. Mix all together and bring to a boil. Immediately reduce temperature to low/med setting cover and cook for additional 10 minutes. Stir several times, yum, yum! Quick easy and full of protein.

10 grams protein from green beans, and 9 grams protein from bean with bacon.
