Re: Going Veggie

Btw, just wanted to come back to my question about keeping beans in the refrigerator.

I took a variety of different beans and lentils (4 different types), put them in a tall pop-top container, filled with water to the brim, sealed it, and stuck it in the back. I left it there for about 4 weeks. Today I took out the container, smelled it (no sign of fermentation), drained it, then checked the beans. Some had softened a bit, but others still felt too firm to eat. I put them in a pot of boiling water (to about 1" above the surface of the beans) and let it go on a low boil for about 12~15 minutes. The small lentils were soft at about 8~10 minutes and the rest were edible-soft at about 15 minutes. Definitely better than cooking for over an hour!

Of course, a pressure cooker would do the same thing without having to soak. I'm going to get one of those. Any recommendations on a model?

Re: Going Veggie

Gary7 I would be worried about all the vitamins leeching out of the beans if I had them in water that long. But that might be some old health food tale I grew up on and have no basis in fact. As to pressure cookers.. they are too scary for me What if they exploded?!

I just cooked huge pot of black beans today after soaking them overnight. They were so delicious I was eating them warm right out of the pot, and just had them on tortillas.

J. Allen
that is excellent news. I am super happy it is working so well for you, I hope you are finding it fun, tasty and not too difficult?

Thanks, teacake. Nope, not difficult at all. It already feels like second nature.

Re: Going Veggie

Nice one, J - well done

Oh and thanks teacake for the yogurt and all bran suggestion - I've finally got round to buying myself some plain yogurt and I've been mixing in bran buds. It makes for a great breakfast!

Actually, I did read up on this, that the outer shell/membrane of the bean keeps a lot of the nutrients inside. I probably won't be in the habit of letting them go that long again, especially with the lentils. It was the larger white navy beans that were really stubborn.

Pressure cookers are very safe, depending upon the model you get. The good ones have a definite lock mechanism that won't let it turn on unless it's firmly in place.

Good going on those numbers, J.Allen.

Black bean stew made in the slow cooker with pumpkin, potato, green pepper, onions, corn, celery, tomoatoes, chillies.. (this is leftovers so has lost the bright colours, the black beans tend to take over after a day).

Eaten with grated cheese and fresh chillie on top.

Re: Going Veggie

The thing weighs nearly 3 kg. It would kill you if it fell on your head.

And it is very stabby.

Sounds dangerous. Wear goggles.
