Beans are a fantastic source of protein, fiber, and minerals. There are all kinds of ways to use them in soups, salads or other dishes. I thought a little lesson on the basics of cooking beans would be a good idea.
It seems you can’t mention beans without somebody making a joke about them being the musical fruit or some such silliness. Well, there’s a very simple way to cook dry beans so you don’t have that—er—windy problem. It’s a little more involved than popping that frozen dinner in the microwave, but it’s simple and well worth doing.
In a nutshell, all you have to do is soak, drain, and boil. That’s how the bubbly young couple in the video here simplify it. Take two and a half minutes to watch their little teaching session by clicking on the video below.
