Prepare your Instant pot and set the Saute program.
Add 3 tbsp of olive oil and leave it to heat. Meanwhile, cut in small cubes about 15 oz of ham and add it to heated oil. Brown it for 3-6 minutes.
Now add finely diced 1 red onion. In a minute add 1 carrot, 1 bell pepper, and 2 stalks of celery cut into cubes. Season with 1 tsp of ground garlic, 1 tsp of ground coriander, 1 tsp of dried thyme, 1 tsp of dried oregano, ¼ tsp of red pepper flakes, and ¼ tsp of ground black pepper. Saute for about 7-8 minutes stirring often.
Pour in 5 cups of broth/stock over the ingredients. Then add 2 cups of white boiled beans (if canned with their juice), and 2 bay leaves. Stir to combine everything well, and taste for seasoning. Adjust if needed and add salt to taste.
Place the lid on, and set the vent to "sealing." Set the IP to "high pressure" for 15 minutes. Once the soup is done, turn off the Instant Pot.
Serve warm with fresh crusty ciabatta and garnish with chopped cilantro!
