It's Bean Month

What is your favorite bean? Do you cook with dried beans? How do you "soften" or cook your dry beans?

     I only like green beans. Can't stand the texture of all the others.

    I'm not really big on beans. Other than green beans and refried, I really don't cook with them much... I just don't care for the flavor.

    I do not have a favorite. I cook dried beans more often than I do the canned beans. I soak the beans over night to clean and soften them, before cooking all day.

    I don't know if I have a 'favorite' one.  I like them all in their own way.  Lentils are great meat subsitute and I've made meatloaf from them.  I cook with dried beans all the time, more so than canned.  I rarely buy canned foods.  I will do an over-night soak if I remember, but usually its the quick soak then cook.

    Beans, beans the musical food. The more you eat, the more you toot. The more you toot, the better you feel. So eat your beans for every meal!

    I love beans. I think that green beans are my fave.

    I soak my dried beans to soften them.

    We love beans. Black, pinto, kidney, small red,northern & green beans are probably the ones we eat the most. I rarely buy canned beans anymore. I usually cook them in my crock-pot. Cajun red beans & rice....mmmmmmm

    Not a bean lover.  Only beans I cook are green beans and the occasional times when a recipe we fix has beans in it.

    I used dried beans, soak them overnight then simmer them the next day....we've recently had ham-bean soup and turkey-bean soup....with homemade bread, of course....filling, "nummy" and easy to make (plus great on days that are colder than well.....you know the saying...lol)

    I like pinto beans, I've cooked them dry before. when cooking them dry I soften them with fatty bacon. If I'm fixing them out of a can I just use some butter.
