A guide for the amount of dried beans to cook

Amount of dried beans
Amount of cooked beans wanted
1/3 cup 1 cup
1/2 cup 1 1/2 cups
2/3 cup 2 cups
1 cup 3 cups
2 cups 6 cups

There are a few ways to prep dried beans before cooking them

  • soak beans in three times their volume of water for a minimum of 6 hours, or
  • soak overnight in the refrigerator, or
  • put them in saucepan with cold water, bring to a gentle boil, and let sit off heat for 1 to 2 hours

Once soaked, drain and add fresh water.

Most beans can be cooked for approximately 1 – 1 1/2 hours in a saucepan,
or for 15 – 20 minutes in a pressure cooker.
