Day 9 - Beans

I had Navy beans for dinner tonight. Just a bowl of them. They took like 2 hours to cook. You would think that “bean technology” would have somehow advanced beyond a 2 hour cook time by now.

Navy Beans on that site says Soak at least 4 hours. Maybe that's why.

I forgot to mention that the 8-11 minutes is at pressure. The pressurizing and depressurizing can add maybe 45 minutes to the preparation time.

Canned foods are precooked, and beans are really popular this way. I get the 14.5oz can at 5/$1 on sale at kroger. All you do is heat them. Of course, dry beans are cheaper, but since you are spending $.22 on ramen anyway this seems like a more realistic food for you. As another person said, add rice!

Split lentils or mung beans. Split in half means less cooking time.. Use the previously mentioned "marvel of modern bean preparation", the pressure cooker, for a drastically reduced wait.

They have advanced, it is called a can... hehehe.
