Cooking Dry Beans

None

The recipe yield is:
1 Servings

Info:
This comes from Adele Davis' Let's Cook It Right: Soaking legumes is unnecessary if the dry legume is quickly washed and dropped into boiling water so slowly that boiling does not stop. As in popping corn, the starch grains burst and break the outside covering of the legume. After the covering and starch grains have burst, water is absorbed rapidly and the cooking time is shortened. When all the beans, lentils, or split peas have been put into the water, the heat should be lowered immediately to prevent the protein from becoming tough. A simmering temperature should then be maintained until the beans are tender. It works for me; I've found cooking times to be *significantly* reduced.
