How To Cook Dried Beans Fast

Until recently, I had no idea how to cook dried beans fast and I really, really love beans! I could eat them every day. With anything. Or just plain. I love them with cilantro lime rice, shredded chicken, slow cooker barbacoa, topped with salsa, topped with fresh herbs, topped with cheese. So many options.

How To Cook Dried Beans Fast

The only problem with using dried beans to satisfy my bean craving is that it can take soooo long. Until now.

I don’t know why I thought my only option to get savory, tasty beans was to soak them all day or overnight. You don’t have to do it. I promise you. If you’ve been wanting to know if there is a good way to cook dried beans fast, there is.

Your body will thank you.
