“From Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, this recipe is a guideline to slow cook basic dried beans such as pintos, kidneys, white beans, and black eyed peas. If you wish to flavour the beans, add the onion, garlic, and bay leaves, else leave them as is; just cook them in water and you will have beans that are ready to use in any recipe calling for cooked beans. Cook time does not include the overnight soak.”
