Important information about using canned beans
I know you don't have the time or inclination to purchase dried, organic bulk beans, then soak them overnight, then cook them. It's very time consuming and requires advance planning. As a working Chef, I do this frequently because I believe there is nothing better than re-constituted beans. However, if you're like most people who want to consume more beans now I'd like to recommend canned organic beans. I'm speaking of kidney beans, black beans and garbanzo beans mainly. Here's the important thing to remember when using canned beans of any kind: RINSE THE BEANS IN COLD WATER USING A STRAINER. DRAIN THEM WELL, THEN ADD TO YOUR RECIPES.
