what kind of beans should I buy?
I have to admit, I don’t think all beans taste the same. I highly suggest purchasing some fresh dry organic, non-GMO Great White Beans. Then precook them and store them in the freezer. It is healthy and delicious, can’t compare to the real deal right?? The fresh organic white beans are quite yummy They have a very creamy, naturally sweet and hint of nuttiness when you bite into them.
how should i cook the dry beans?
And don’t be afraid to buy dry beans! It is super easy to cook in the Instant Pot. You don’t even need to soak them anymore!! Let Instant Pot do the work for you and walk away! Please check out my Instant Pot Bean Recipe.
