Beans help you live longer, or at least a whole lot of scientific evidence seems to point in that direction. But where to begin? There are so many types of beans around the world (ayocote! gigante! lupini! pinto! mung!), and for the uninitiated, getting them from their dried state to their cooked and tender state can seem like an ordeal. Take a deep breath. Joe Yonan of the Washington Post is here to walk you through everything you need to know. You’ll come across tantalizing recipes for everything from fagiole to enfrijoladas, sure, but more importantly you’ll get the easy tips and tricks that will help you master this versatile ingredient — an ingredient that should be viewed as a cornerstone of wellbeing.
