As a general rule, 1 cup of dried beans yields about 2½-3 cups of cooked beans.


  • Dry soybeans (preferably non-GMO)
  • Seasonings, as desired


  1. Sort one cup beans from rocks, etc.
  2. Rinse beans.
  3. We soak the beans in 6-8 cups water with a teaspoon of salt for at least 8 hours; we prefer 24 hours of soaking.
  4. Pour off all of soak water.
  5. We then pressure-cook the beans for eleven minutes (15 lbs pressure). Follow the directions on your pressure cooker for the amount of water you use.
  6. We add a generous teaspoon of salt.
  7. Use the beans in any recipe.
  8. Sometimes we place the cooked beans in our crock pot for some tasty beans at potluck.

Servings: 5-6
