Island White Bean Soup
Preparation below is a suggestion; remember to cook in your rhythm.
Dried beans preparation:
You do not have to soak them overnight, but you can. (1) Add 2 cups of beans and 4 cups of water in your pressure cooker for 15-21 minutes, and voila, (2) if you soaked the beans 10-15 minutes in your pressure cookers, then 1 hour until fully cooked and soft on the stovetop. Here is an island secret twist: add salt and 1 (one) garlic to your beans for better-tasting beans. They can take a lot of salt. Add water as needed.
