Add the beans and saute’ for a minute.

Add the water, close the herb bag (you can add a piece of garlic/onion in the bag) and toss in the pot.
Bring to a boil, and then turn down the heat.
Cook until beans are soft (about 30-40 minutes and 10 in an Instant Pot).
You may have to add more water if it cooks down before beans are soft.
When finished, remove the herb bag and toss.

Great with rice and a salad; borritos, tacos
Beans are a great source of protein and fiber!
