Rich kids would think you were preparing a diet for the god of thunder.

Interesting grin. What you should have done is put the onions earlier on, onion actually makes beans soften faster. That style is how I cook my cow legs now since my pressure cooker is no longer pressure cookering. I boil the meat for about 30 minutes, leave it in hot water for hours or even overnight. By then it would have softened after which I boil again for another 20-30 minutes, dem no born am well make e no soft. Na to improvise sure pass with the way things are going in this country

Who has tried to cook soya beans?

Omo that soya beans can take 3 hours. Use to eat soya beans and boil but now I can't find soya beans in open market.

Do you prepare it like beans and eat like that? I have never heard of such before.

Fastest method ever to me @the bolded, just soak in water. Lets say you want to cook it in the morning, soak in water overnight it will be soft.

If you soak beans for long, it loses that fresh taste. That's my observation though.

You're very correct, I actually achieved this in 25 minutes. Sound unbelievable but check my method.
In the evening, I cooked the beans for 15 minutes, then pour inside my child big food flask, the type that retain heat for a very long time, left this overnight. In the morning I pour it back into the pot and cook again for 10 minutes, viola. It was done.

Country hard and food is expensive and as of now, I personally think beans is one food item that I get to eat which fills me up for long and at the same time, not to expensive. I normally cook 1 and a half cup & it's more than enough to fill me the whole day. For this reason, I've been eating beans frequently. It's about #1400 to #1500 per Congo here in Ibadan for Oloyin beans. Some other varieties are sold as low as 1k per Congo. This method would save your gas or kerosene & it's not for people in a hurry. I tried it after reading about it online. I think it's called "Dry Cooking Method".

So this morning, I decided to cook beans. I cooked Oloyin beans in particular and I cooked it in just about 32 minutes without using Potash (Kaun) or whatever it is most of you use. I know the next question on your minds is the "How?". LFG!

1. The steps matter.
2. I used a thick pot to retain heat (there's a reason for this).
3. I cooked at high flame levels.
4. The cover of the pot has to fit the pot so well, so tightly that the heat won't escape.
5. This will only work when cooking small quantity of beans. Mine is 2 cups. It will take longer when cooking in large quantity. This method is for students & single people who cook for just themselves. Family people, sorry you hear? So I'll head to the steps now.

Whether you're using gas or stove, all the time the beans is on fire, the flame level should be high.

I first made sure the beans boiled. Took about 10 minutes at high flame level, then I switched off the gas & allowed the beans soak in hot water for about 1 hour still inside that same pot. I used a thick pot as it retains heat more than light pots so this kept the water hot within the 1 hour period & it was covered throughout so the heat won't escape.

After 1 hour, the beans had gotten a bit soft. I switched on the gas & turned on the flame to be high. Within 15 minutes, it was already soft after which I added the remaining ingredients apart from onions. I added onions immediately after the 1 hour break.

The remaining 7 minutes was to let the ingredients seep in. Took me exactly 32 minutes with high flames.

There you go fam! Na hard economy make me discover this even though I'm sure some of you here know a faster way even without using extra resources or pressure cooker. If you do it please share, I'm still trying to discover how to cook beans within 5 minutes πŸ˜‚ Oga Tinubu, you do this one. Na you motivate me. Thank you sir!

Go and get yourself a pressure cooker.

Go and get pressure pot... It's cheaper to use and cooks faster


A funny hack people don't use,

If you want fresh pounded yam.....

Cut your yam in small cubes

Cook your yam in a pressure pot to the best softness

Drain the water

Put it in a blender or food processor and blend

Take it out and allow to be cold for few minutes


.

He doesn't know the easiest way and is pressure pot and not to soak the beans in hot water.

Advisably, if toy have the intention to cook the beans next day, Soak the Beans overnight before cooking it. Then you can achieve the 30min.

Just make sure you boil the water before pouring the beans.

Put lots of onions a little bicarbonate

It can boil in less than 40 mins using this method.

To me, I would consider the beans soaked & not well cooked. And I hate it when food gets soft/done as a result of soaking.

Slice your onion immediately you put the beans, because onion helps soften the beans.

Beans required heat, not flame.


As long the beans has boiled, and the pot is heated, lower your gas and see the magic.
