Recipe Cheats - Beans
There is a balance between time, effort, and money in my recipes. Sometimes - to save time - I will use a 'cheat' that has already been prepared. There may be cheaper options that require more work and/or time.
In the can or in an aseptic pack saves time. These have added salt.
Buying dry beans and cooking them ahead of time saves money. The salt content is under your control.
Lentils can be used instead of the beans. They are generally easier and less time-consuming to cook.
