Heirloom Beans: Recipes from Rancho Gordo by Steve SandoThere is not one single method of cooking beans. At its most basic, you want to simmer the pot until the beans are soft. Soaking can speed up the process and vegetables or stock will make them more flavorful. It's really that simple. There's all kinds of fine tuning and variables, but basically, this is it. Normally on a bean cooking day which frankly is everyday at Rancho Gordo , I put the beans to soak in the morning, after rinsing in lots of cool water and checking for small debris.

Black beans have a particularly rich flavor, much more so than others beans, and lend themselves to being paired with ingredients that have a lot of pizzazz, like peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, and tangy sour cream. You have to dig a little deeply to find them, so I was grateful when I was on book tour and someone handed me a bag of Rancho Gordo black beans. Thanks to the woman who gifted them to me! The first time I had black bean soup was when I was working in a vegetarian restaurant. It was really, really good — excellent, in fact, and had chopped green olives in it. The story goes that a Cuban woman was dining in the restaurant, tasted the black bean soup, paused, then told the cooks that the soup would be better with olives. So they became part of the recipe.
Highly recommend. Heirloom and heritage varieties don't need a lot of fussing if they are used fresh, kale has become a very trendy ingredient. Somehow, which I'd define as within two years. Salt isn't necessary but the beans rule the dish.
