Tips for this Recipe

Cooking Red Beans

Soak the Beans overnight (soaking helps the beans cook fast. Soaking is not necessary if a pressure cooker is available). Add the soaked and washed beans in 1 cup of water in a 2 qt saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 30 min. or until soft to touch.

Alternatively, you could use canned cooked beans if available.


Soak the coconut ahead of time in 1/4 cup of water if using dried shredded coconut
