A note from
our co-founder, Lesley

After spending 15 years working in agriculture and learning about the role that beans play in human and soil health, it became clear to me that beans are the perfect food. As I cooked my way through as many beans from around the world I could get my hands on, I knew I had to share the love.

When is the best time to salt beans?

The exact timing for adding salt is controversial among cooks. In this experiment, I ran four different tests on Chickpeas from Primary Beans to determine the best method. By Karishma Pradhan.

Do I need to soak beans?

There is a huge debate around whether you need to soak beans in advance of cooking them. To test these theories, I cooked 5 varieties of beans from Primary Beans in an Instant Pot. By Karishma Pradhan.

What is the best method to cook beans?

There are several ways to cook beans at home, from stovetop to the Instant Pot. My goal was to determine the best method and identify any differences between methods. By Karishma Pradhan.
