      it’s just a fast where you only eat beans so you don’t go into starvation mode

        unfortunately not, i have a crock pot and a rice cooker if those will work? otherwise i’m seeing maybe i can microwave these in water to speedup the soaking process?

      Yes. It's called the "quick soak method", I do it all the time but it's not as good as overnight.
      Put the beans in some cold water a good few inches above the surface. Bring it to a boil for 1 minute then shut it off. Let them rest for 2 hours or until they plump up, then drain that water and replace it with fresh and cook it like you would from overnight.

      Try adding a bit of baking soda to the water, it can help it go faster (too much can taste funny or break down the skins, only do like a 1/2 tsp.)
      Also don't add any acidity to the cooking water at any time during the cooking process, only at the end. It'll make the beans take way longer to cook. Idk why, I heard once it has something to do with breaking the pectin or something, but it's absolutely true I've noticed it can take sometimes twice as long. Maybe that's why baking soda works, it goes the other way on the pH scale.

        thanks anon i’ll try this for tonight. i”” probably just microwave it instead of boiling on the stove though. also i don’t have baking soda, would this work instead? (it’s aluminum free)

          I wouldn't use baking powder, I have no idea what it would do. If you don't have baking soda just skip it, it won't make a huge difference as long as you're not using like really hard tap water in a rural area.
          Also idk why you'd microwave it, just do the soaking in the same pot you're planning on cooking the beans in, just leave it on the back burner for a few hours they're not gonna spoil. If you microwave them it could like boil over and make a mess.

            fair point. i was thinking it would be faster and less dishes to clean, but i’d rather not clean the microwave if it boils over.

    A good way to do pinto beans is what I call "cowboy beans". I cook the beans with bay leaves first until they're like 90% done. Then I fry up a bunch of onion, garlic and jalapeno and add it in, along with some cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, a cube of bouillon, salt & pepper, sugar, vinegar, and instant coffee.
    The coffee does something really special with the southwestern texmex flavors there, it balances it and gives a dark roasty flavor, and it's how cowboys would make it while on the trail or on cattle drives. They would throw the rest of their morning coffee in the bean pot. You could just add a shot of espresso or brew a strong cup and add it if you want, but I keep instant coffee around just for my beans.

      this sounds delicious the only thing i don’t have is jalapenos. i’ll probably use hot sauce instead for that but i’ll try this tonight with the quick boiled method.

    Just eat a handful of raw beans right before you go to bed. Trust me you won't have to worry about starvation any more

        Actually, some raw legumes have been known to kill people.

        >Just four or five raw kidney beans can trigger the symptoms of toxicity. Within one to three hours of consumption of the raw beans you can experience extreme nausea and vomiting, with diarrhea and abdominal pain developing afterwards.
        >However, it has been found that boiling the beans for 10 minutes at 100 degrees C (212 degrees F) completely destroyed the toxin. To be safe, consumers should boil the beans for at least 30 minutes to ensure that the product reaches sufficient temperature, for a sufficient amount of time, to completely destroy the toxin.
        >Slow cookers should not be used to cook the beans or dishes that contain them. Studies of casseroles cooked in slow cookers revealed that the food only reached internal temperatures of 75 degrees C (167 degrees F) or less.

          Lol you really are moronic

          it’s just like meat, dairy, or eggs, there’s always a risk you could get food poisoning without cooking it. but that doesn’t stop people from eating sushi or a raw steak or over easy eggs. if you really believe that something like beans, which have been around for centuries, most of which we did not even have ovens to heat the beans, and that these bean’s actually killed people, you are actually beyond help.
          let me guess… you’re double vaxxed too
