Legumes have been used throughout the earth for thousands of years. They come in hundreds of shapes, sizes and colors, are versatile and amazingly convenient because they can be dried and stored for years. Soaking beans for a couple of hours brings them back to life, activating enzymes, proteins, minerals and vitamins.

Beans can be eaten raw, sprouted or cooked, ground into flour, curdled into tofu, fermented into soya sauce, tempi and miso. They are excellent in chilies, soups and salads. Beans are high in iron and packed with protein. They are also a rich source of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, potassium, phosphorus and an excellent source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. They are low in sodium and saturated fats.

  • Equivalents: 1 pound of dried beans = 2 cups dried beans = 6 cups of cooked beans.


For every 2 cups of beans add 10 cups of hot water. Heat to boiling, let boil 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and set aside for one hour. Discard the soak water. Place the soaked, rinsed and drained beans in a large saucepan with fresh hot water. Water level should be about one inch above the beans. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil may  to reduce foaming and boil-overs; If the water should foam, skim it off. Boil beans for 10 minutes, then simmer until tender (approximately 1 to 2 hours, depending on the variety). Add seasoning during the cooking time, if desired.
