Last week I realized for very long time I didn’t use my dried beans and that wasn’t good because always when I was thinking to make them but the long time to prepare them causes easily to giving up without even thinking further. One day while I was thinking how to solve this dried bean problem a great idea light up immediately to rescue! Yessss, Soaking! boiling! and freezing! dried beans.
While soaking the reddish beans to save energy and time I diced to soak all of the dried beans, chickpeas and green lentils I didn’t boil the chickpeas and green lentils ( but if you like you can) just drain them well and freeze them but I boiled the reddish beans and beans they are super short-cut to your meal after long working/tired day. Just de-freeze how much you need and boil them with little water and salt about 5-10 min.
Enjoy it over your salad, in mazza or main dishes.
Let’s start up to something quicker&healthier!
1 medium organic onion thinly sliced
1 cup cooked organic reddish beans

Cook them 30-40 min. or more or less until you can taste to mash them with back of spoon on a plate easily this shows they are done.
