OK all you amazing chefs, can you help me out? I decided last night to soak some black beans overnight, not sure what I was going to do with them. Got online this am looking for some good soup recipes and found all of them called for canned black beans.

Anyone have a good recipe with fresh beans? Or any hints on how to alter a recipe from canned to fresh?

I am clueless with some things. THANKS!!

I have a good chili recipe - it's fairly healthy - onions, chicken, rice (or couscous) peppers, canned tomatoes. can make it as big as you want.

After you have soaked the dry beans you should be able to just use them instead of canned. But taste them first; you may want to cook them in water for a bit to soften them up if they are too firm. Personally, I like them firm instead of all mushy.

Cook the soaked beans with 1/2 an onion, 1/2 a carrot, 1/2 a celery stalk, a bay leaf, and 2 garlic cloves until they're tender, about 1-1.5 hours. Then drain them and proceed with the recipes using canned black beans.
