It’s so simple and yet so good! Thanks 🙂

I made a pot this morning (Thursday) and I’m wondering if I can leave the individual portions for my husband to take to work with him next week in the fridge or whether I’d better freeze them now. What has been your experience? Thanks!

Bonus question – what are your thoughts on using Sriracha instead of chili paste? Or alternatively, can you recommend a brand of chili paste that you like? I’m new to cooking with chili paste in general and the only one I found at the store that looked palatable was considerably more expensive than yours. (Maybe I just don’t know what I’m looking for, tho.) Appreciate any thoughts you can share!

They need a higher temp. Other beans are fine in the slow cooker.

Rehydrate some with a mix of hot water and a bacon-flavored marinade (liquid smoke, maple syrup, and tamari– google “vegan bacon” for the exact recipe). Chop up into bit-size pieces, throw into a jar, and use it to augment rice dishes, baked potatoes, etc. It’s delicious and adds that bacon flavor we love. I keep a jar of this on hand and throw it into lots of dishes and it would be a great addition to the beans and rice dish!

My husband tells me you shouldn’t do that…

I cook up a mess of them easily in the pressure cooker with quite a bit of water. Then once cool, I separate the broth from the beans and freeze them separately in ice cube trays. Once frozen I store them in the freezer in freezer bags. Any time I need beans or broth for soup, I just reach in and grab what I need, In a recipe like this the beans frozen in the size of an ice cube u-thaw very quickly, like heating a can of cold beans, and they taste much better.
