It does not get any easier than this. Just toss these things into your crock pot before bed to have them for lunch the next day, or before you leave for work to have them for supper:
1 pound bag of dried black beans
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ginger powder
7 cups of water
If you wish to use “lite” salt to taste, wait until after the beans are cooked and the liquid is reduced. You will use far less that way.
