Directions:
Directions:
Clean beans to remove any debris from harvesting.
Rinse under cold running water.
Place beans inside pressure cooker, cover with enough water, add garlic, bay leaves, and culantro leaves. (Check your pressure cooker manufacturer’s information), cook until tender. Release pressure and put back on the stove top on medium heat.
Season with salt, pepper and cumin.
While beans are cooking, peel and boil the green bananas. Another option is to peel the bananas and cook them with the beans only after you have released the pressure. At this point, you can add the shelled eggs directly to the simmering soup, for about 15-20 minutes. You can also add the whole eggs in the soup, and peel them before serving. Just make sure eggs are at room temperature, otherwise they will crack open.
Enjoy with your favorite toppings.
