Forgot to soak my beans!

Recommended Posts

Drats! I was going to make bean soup today and forgot to soak my beans over night! Is there some way i can still make the soup for dinner tonight? Or should i just soak now and plan on it being dinner for Friday or Saturday?

 

I thought i read something about boiling them, and then letting them sit for a few hours, then making the soup, but i can't find those instructions/directions anywhere!

 

TIA for your help.

You can still have them in time for dinner! You cancook them unsoaked and it only takes about 15 extra minutes. Just bring them to a boil then turn the heat off, put the lid on and let it set until it's fully cooked. Give it a try!!!

I actually never soak my beans. I bring them to a boil in a pot of water and let them simmer/low boil for 3ish hours. I like them to burst somewhat because it will thicken the broth and make a rich heavy pot of beans(very clowdy brown). I season with salt and a few drops of liquid smoke (replaces hamhock). I just like a good pot of beans and they make an excellent chili this way also. I wouldn't use these to make any bean salad etc..as they will have many burst skins.

I also will used Bush's pinto beans in a push for a recipe/salad.they are actually pretty yummy.


Be your own best friend every day.
