Everyone loves a good and spicy curry, and even more when it's made in one pot!
This Instant Pot green curry is insanely creamy, infused with fresh aromatic herbs, and served with tender white navy beans. It's healthy, filling, delicious, rich in protein, and so easy to prepare!
From all the curries I tried, green curry is definitely my favorite. This Thai-inspired curry starts with the mushrooms and carrots that are sautéed for a few minutes in the Instant Pot. Depending on what you have on hand, you can also add red bell pepper, zucchini, or even pumpkin. Then we deglaze the pot with a drizzle of soy sauce for extra flavor.
In the meantime, let's prepare the sauce! Add full-fat coconut milk, green curry paste, fresh cilantro, fresh basil, lime juice, and finally a good pinch of salt to a blender and blend until smooth.
We are almost done, it's now time to let the Instant Pot do its job! Transfer the green curry sauce to the pot, add the dry navy beans, a cup of water, and close the lid.
You want to pressure cook for about 50 minutes. I like my beans very, very tender, but if you prefer them to be a bit firmer, feel free to reduce the cooking time by about 10 minutes.
Once the pressure has been released manually, let the curry cool a few minutes before serving with white rice, quinoa, or noodles! Add a squeeze of lime, top with more fresh herbs, and chopped chili for extra spiciness!

Can this be done in a Ninja Foodie
I'm afraid I have no idea about this tool, sorry.
Looks yummy! Any guesses as to whether the sauce and beans could be simmered in a regular pot or even a slow cooker? I don’t have an instant pot.
I would guess it would work in a regular pot but you might have to add a bit more water/sauce.
easy!!! MY MOUTH IS DROOLING!! So delicious, so much so, my carnivores are loving it. Thank you
Thanks Sharon! 😉
Made this two nights in a row and it was AMAZING!! Can do without the maple syrup in my opinion but definitely don’t skip on the herbs! I love how versatile this recipe is! Just blend up the curry sauce and you could essentially do anything with it as far as cooking it on the stovetop and mixing up different veggies/toppings, etc, YUM! Thank you!
Thanks so much for your feedback Al! Happy to hear you liked this curry 🙂
Can you do this on the stove if you don’t have a instapot?
I haven't tried on the stove yet, but it should work. Cook covered and add more water as needed.
Thomas, can the instant pot white bean green curry be made in a croc pot? I do not own an instant pot, and this recipe sounds delicious.
I do not own a croc pot, but I guess you could try cooking on low for 6 hours. You might have to add a bit more water though, so keep an eye on it.
This green curry is absolutely delicious!!! Best green curry I've ever had!
I made it in a large skillet, added water little by little and cooked it for about and hour.
Since I had some tofu left, I added it, diced, as well.
Thank you, Thomas, for sharing.
Thanks so much for your great feedback! 🙂
I don't have an Instant Pot so I used my pressure cooker. I soaked beans overnight, then cooked them for 6 minutes under pressure in my pressure cooker.. Next I removed beans and water from the pot, and used the pressure cooker to sauté the carrots and mushrooms. When they were done, I added the green curry sauce and the precooked beans. I also added some of the bean water, which turned out not to be necessary. I covered the pressure cooker and cooked this whole mixture for another few minutes. It was a little watery, but delicious.
Thanks for sharing this method of cooking Peg! Glad you liked it!
