Pot of Black Beans
  • 4 cups black beans
  • 2-3 garlic cloves - smashed
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • 1 sheet of kombu (optional)
  • sea salt
  1. Soak the beans overnight or up to 24 hours in plenty of purified water with a splash of apple cider vinegar.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans. Place them in a large soup pot with plenty of purified water (about 10 cups). Add the garlic cloves, bay leaves and kombu, if using. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Taste for doneness. If the beans are not completely soft and buttery inside, continue to cook until fully done. Salt at the last 10 minutes. Drain, saving the cooking liquid. Discard the bay leaves and kombu, if using.
