This is an easy way to cook dried black beans in a rice cooker. After cooking, you can use them in burritos, veggie burgers, soups, or anything you like! I have also cooked kidney beans and a mixture of kidney and black beans this way.

Very easy and a great way to use a rice cooker. I would prefer to cook the beans with some seasonings. One tip I use if you want the beans to hold their shape soak them in salted water drain / rinse and then cook them. The beans will still get soft but not fall apart or turn mushy. Read More
