Special Blend for Cooking Dry Beans

Certain ingredients can be added to cooking beans to improve their digestibility and nutritional content. Over the years I’ve added each of these herb, spices and other ingredients individually to each batch I make. Recently it occurred that I should make up a bulk batch and simply add a tablespoon of the mixture to each pot of beans. Yay- it’s works great and saves time, so I’ll share the recipe here. Be watching for my next newsletter article on cooking beans from dry. If you haven’t previously signed up for my free newsletter, be sure to visit Simply Natural Health and do so!

    I have been wanting to add more kelp and dulse to our meals, but have not known how (being anti-seafood taste). This is a wonderful idea!!! And serves multiple purposes! Thank you Kim!!!

    Yeah- it’s tricky to find ways to incorporate sea veggies. Cooking beans seems like a consistent way to do so.
