One thing that always surprises me is the 12-24 soaking period. to me it is 24-48, much closer to 48, and I want to see germination. (of course this will not work with split peas). There is also a strong hierarchy within pulses, just like in... (more)

All beans, properly soaked (even a two days soak if needed, for red kidney beans for example), and well cooked, are similar. That is because the lectins are similar though with varying amounts. If you want really light beans, make them into natto.... (more)

The dehydrating alone is not making them crispy: the starch coating and frying is making them crispy. Yes, the dehydrating helps. However, the moist-and-yet-crispy bite to them is undoubtedly from the frying. Consider dehydrating them much, much... (more)

If you're seeing benefits from eating beans I say eat em, who cares if they're paleo or not. Tubers and root vegetables are probably a better source of carbs, but that doesn't mean you should shun beans if they work for you.

Just a thought, and wanted to start a discussion about it. Not asking for any particular reason. What's worse eating nuts or beans? Don't they both contain phytates?

Most beans are worse than most nuts but not because of phytates or n6 content. It's other things like raffinose (the bean sugar that makes you fart) in kidney beans, phytoestrogens in soy, the mold (aflatoxin) in peanuts that are really bad. I... (more)

Botanically they're legumes. Personally, I regard young bean and pea pods and pea shoots as acceptable vegetables since the problematic compounds develop in the more mature seeds.

Carmelize onions in a lot of butter or coconut oil before you add to soups. They actually thicken the soup a lot. Some types of capsicum peppers also thicken up with long slow cooking.
