Porridge beans, most times would take a lot of time to get done and this is one thing we don't need with the present state of cooking gas. We need to burn our gas only for a short period of time and not prolonged intervals.

Here is a tip to employ when cooking you beans -

- First you have to pick the stones and then wash.

- After that you would need to parboil it and sieve out the first water coming from it. A lot of people would face stomach upset after eating beans because they cook it straight ahead and not sieve the first water away.

Atimes, some chemicals used in preserving these legumes end up getting into the seeds and when we cook such foods straight ahead, we risk getting ourselves contaminated by them.

- After the parboiling step, wash the beans and put back in your pot then cut some onions and add to the pot with the beans.

- After it must have boiled with the Onions you may now proceed with the other condiments you may feel like adding to your food.

The presence of Onions helps loosen the protein bonds in the beans making them more receptive to heat. Try it and save your gas, time and money.
