How to cook dried red kidney beans?

marco | Aug 1, 2004 12:58 PM


I have some dried red kidney beans sitting in the kitchen. Unfortunately, I lost the instructions of how to prepare them. I think you're supposed to soak and prepare them somehow. I'm thinking of cooking them in an Indian style with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and chillies. Any ideas of how long I'd need to soak and boil them before cooking it up??

Any other ideas of what to make with red kidney beans?

Also, do any of you notice a difference in using canned kidney beans versus the dried ones?
