How to properly cook beans?

  1. Soak the beans in cold water for several hours to soften their hard shell.
  2. Most often we soak overnight.
  3. All legumes for baking must be cooked in advance.
  4. Here is the relative main disadvantage of legumes, because they take quite a long time to cook.
  5. We always cook beans in an excess of water, which means that they are not only completely submerged, but the water must exceed them by several cm.
  6. We do not stir them during boiling, at most we shake the pot a little.
  7. Also, we do not salt them before cooking or during boiling, we only do this when processing the softened and cooked legumes.
