Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water to boil and add salt.
  2. Drop beans in slowly so that the water continues to boil.
  3. When all beans are in the pot, add 1 tablespoon of baking soda.
  4. Keep a close eye on the pot as soda will cause it to boil up and over, which means you might have to reduce the heat a bit.
  5. Scum will gather on the top of the water, and this must be scooped off with a spoon.
  6. Continue skimming and stirring until the beans are done, which should take about 8 to 12 minutes.
  7. Drain and serve.
  8. ---To prepare the dressing---.
  9. Melt butter in microwave or in a small pan and stir in the herbs.
