25 Easy Recipes Using Beans
Beans are such a great addition to any stockpile. While canned beans may be the most common, dry beans are an excellent choice for keeping in the pantry longer. I love that I can grab either and whip up a meal that everyone loves. These recipes are excellent for meatless meals, but many are great as side dishes.
Should I Use Canned or Dry Beans?
What type of bean you use depends upon your preference, availability, and the individual recipe. Most recipes work well with dry beans once they are cooked. So, if you don’t have canned on hand, just cook dry from scratch. You can cook most dry beans in under an hour in the Instant Pot or in 4-5 hours in your slow cooker. Use whichever method works better for you, and get started enjoying delicious bean filled meals.
