I’ve cooked with home dehydrated kidney beans before, which are the staple for my vegetarian chili. I generally do cook them first as part of a bigger meal. They rehydrate really well, but only if you chop them up first. I usually do freezer bag cooking, and they’re soft enough for me. Chickpeas when made into hummus rehydrate 100%, although they need an obscene amount of water to really rehydrate. Lentils don’t rehydrate that well and remain a bit crunchy, but it’s not too bothersome to me.Feb 14, 2020 at 5:13 pm #3631320John “Jay” MennaBPL Member
Call me a heathen but I over cook them and dehydrate them and just eat them crunchy. (without rehydrating) I actually look forward to a bag of crunchy three bean chili. It’s tasty.
Pinto beans and baked beans seem to work out fine. Black eyed pea’s are tasty but chew like gravel.Feb 15, 2020 at 8:23 am #3631380
Lol.. Like eating fish aqarium gravel..Feb 15, 2020 at 8:29 am #3631382
@Roger. Thanks for posting that soup meal. I made it a little differently.. Used a packet of white miso soup powder (with scallion, mushroom and tofu), added 3 tablespoons dried mixed veggies and 3 tablespoons dried peas and a hand Full of baby Bella mushrooms.. Also used Udon noodles. I guess it’s a little different from yours, but without your posting it, I never would have made it!!! The Jarlsberg low-fat swiss cheese chunks is KEY!!!Feb 15, 2020 at 1:10 pm #3631423Roger CaffinModerator

You could also try tomato soup plus sun-dried tomatoes, but be warned the olive oil CREEPS out of containers! Double-bag on top.

so here is my photo, lol. I’m at work so I decided to make that soup, this time I added 1 tablespoon of coconut powder.. I then added cold water and let it all soak for about 3 – 4 hours.. Then added more water and heated it all up real quick.. Just to a simmer.. Took it off heat , covered and let sit 5 more minutes.. Mmm mmm mmm tasty it is!!
