Cooking With Beans

When using canned beans, simply drain and rinse well. Brands vary in firmness, so try different brands until you find one you like. Dried beans, other than lentils and split peas, must be soaked before cooking. To soak: Wash beans well; place in bowl. Add enough water to cover beans by 3 inches; cover. Let stand 8 hours. Drain. To quick-soak: Wash beans well; place in saucepan. Add enough water to cover beans by 3 inches; cover. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Boil 2 min. Let stand 1 hour. Drain.

Food Facts

White kidney beans, also called cannellini beans, are available both in dried and canned forms. They make a wonderful addition to soups and salads. If white kidney beans are not available, use navy beans, great Northern beans or kidney beans instead.
