Directions for use
To cook, first wash and submerge well with fresh water to soak overnight. Before cooking, drain well and rinse again. For every 1 cup of beans, add 2 cups of water or more – as they cook, they make a thick, soupy brown sauce that can be used in soups and stews for a savoury burst of flavour. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat to simmer – covered – for around 1 to 1 ½ hours. Only add salt at the very end, as salt tends to harden beans while they are cooking.
Eat plain as a snack, or add to rice for a pilaf, or roast in the oven, or add to your favourite tomato sauce for a delicious protein b
