Texture. We all like our kidney beans different. 30 minutes with a NPR will produce just cooked white beans that don’t go to mush and is perfect for mixing with rice or into a salad for a one pot dinner. If you want mushy beans do a 40 minute cook time and then do a natural pressure release.
Quantities. One recipe is 2 cups of kidney beans, and they will make double when cooked.
Frozen Stock. Your frozen stock sits on top and will defrost as the beans cook, creating a much more flavoursome beans recipe.
