Beans, let alone dried beans, in general are not only a great source of protein, but also dietary fiber which is important for keeping a healthy gut flora, improving absorption of nutrients and lowering cholesterol levels.
The problem though is that dried beans take a long time to prepare.
Or at least they used to.
Before discovering this simple method to cook dried beans fast, my typical night would look something like this:
- Weigh the beans out using my food scale
- Place beans in a bowl and fill with water
- Wait overnight (sometimes up to 24hrs) for the beans to soak
- Spend another 2 hours cooking beans
Now I don’t know about you, but 26 hours for a cup of beans sounds like a bit much.
…but that’s literally what I would do just about every night for a year.
That is until I discovered this simple trick which I’m about to share with you in my video below that literally saved me hours in the kitchen.
