  • 450 g (1lb) dried beans
  • Water

  • Pick through the beans and discard unwanted debris.
  • Soak the beans overnight in water.
  • Preheat the oven to fan assisted 160C / 180C / 350F / gas 4.
  • Rinse and drain the beans and transfer them into an oven proof casserole pot.
  • Add enough water so that the beans are covered by 3cm of water.
  • Add some salt and seasoning to your preference.
  • Then cover and bake them in the oven for 80 mins.
  • Check the beans if they are cooked through.
  • If not then bake them for a little bit longer checking them every 10 mins.


If you have older beans they might take a little bit more time to bake. Add more liquid if you want a soup like consistency to your beans.
