How much to cook beans?
Interested in how much to cook beans? Note that the amount of time depends on the type of beans and on whether you made a pre-soak before cooking. Consider the possible options.
Cooking White Beans
White beans can be cooked for about 50 minutes. Pre-soaking is not required.
How to cook red beans
Red beans should be soaked for about 8 to 12 hours, and it is desirable to change the water every 4 hours - during soaking harmful substances come out of the beans. After soaking, red beans are boiled for an hour.
Some recipes recommend boiling red beans for 5-6 hours, changing the water every hour. In my opinion, such a procedure does not give much time gain, but the complexity is higher.
There is another quick soaking recipe, when water and beans are boiled for about 3 minutes, then turned off and left for an hour. Then the water is drained, poured cold and boiled. But still the recipe for classic soaking is better.
