I am sorry for my absence this week...and I apologize in advance for the shortness of this post. I am suffering from a mid-course professor switch. And the professor before and after could not be more different. It's made for a very stressful, homework filled week. I am glad the weekend is almost here!
Beans are pretty essential to a vegetarian. They are a great source of protein and taste great! Dried beans are sooo much cheaper than canned beans but involve a lot of hassle. Sad Stephanie. Buuttt did you know that you could cook beans in a slow cooker? And then freeze the cooked beans for easier use of large batches? Happy Stephanie! This does require some planning. I normally try to get the beans done over the weekend so that they're ready for the week. And since you can make large batches and freeze them in portions, once you get going, you won't have to do all the different types in the same weekend.
Dried Beans in the Slow Cooker
Makes 2-4 cups cooked beans, depending on the type of beans
- 2 cups dried beans, any type
- 1/4 onion, wedged
