Check with your dr when as to when you should start dried beans. Extras can be frozen.


  1. Rinse and pick over 1 cup of dried beans. Soak in water overnight or boil for 2 minutes, then let sit 2 hours.
  2. Drain off the soaking liquid, and add 3 cups fresh water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the beans are tender (30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the kind of beans).
  3. Skim the surface of the pan often as the beans simmer.
  4. Drain, and blend with breast milk or formula, using more or less to get the thickness you need.
