For the beans
Timing is based on how you’ve soaked the beans. If soaked overnight cook for 6 - 8 minutes. For quick soaked beans, cook for 12 – 15 minutes (For quick soaked add beans to 3 cups of water, bring to pressure, allow for a natural release; quick release after 10 minutes; rinse and drain then cook).
For the gravy
If you don't have a pressure cooker, you can also make this delicious gravy using canned beans (1 can rinsed and drained).
Note from VEW: This recipe from JL Fields is one of several featured which use a pressure cooker. A pressure cooker is a great appliance for anyone who wants to eat more plant-based meals. If you've never used a pressure cooker before, you'll be doing so easily with just a little guidance from JL Fields and her "Vegan Pressure Cooking" cookbook.
