The EZ Bean Cooker is a small, electric kitchen appliance that uses pressure cooking technology to cook dry beans quickly, with no presoaking necessary. Simply add ingredients to the cooker, select the preset bean variety button, push “Start” and walk away. The EZ Bean Cooker cooks most beans in 30 to 50 minutes. With a simple recipe book that features one-pot meals, the EZ Bean Cooker is an essential kitchen appliance for busy families and those that just love beans.
During the segment, Sara Moulton, celebrity chef and cookbook author, discusses the benefits of beans – not only are they a good source of protein, beans are rich in nutrients like potassium and folate, low in fat and high in fiber. Dry beans are an economical and versatile food that can be incorporated into all types of dishes; Sara shows viewers how to make an easy black bean soup by adding ingredients to the EZ Bean Cooker. She shows other recipes included in the recipe section of the User Manual such as hummus, black beans and rice, chili, and red beans and rice. The black bean soup recipe Sara Moulton uses with the EZ Bean Cooker can be found below.
The EZ Bean Cooker is so simple to use that someone who has never cooked dry beans before will be able to create a tasty, satisfying meal with little effort. In addition to easy preparation and quick cook times, the EZ Bean Cooker is simple to clean – the inner cooking pot is even dishwasher safe. To see just how easy it is to use the EZ Bean Cooker to make nutritious, one-pot meals, tune in to “The Balancing Act” on Lifetime Television on September 28th at 7:00am (ET/PT).
Black Bean Soup
1 pound Black Beans
6 cups Water
4 teaspoons Vegetable Oil
1 Tablespoon Ground Black Pepper
1 Bay Leaf
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder*
2 teaspoons Garlic Powder*
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
*Fresh ingredients can be used as a substitute for powdered (1 small chopped onion, 2-3 garlic cloves, minced)
First, sort beans: remove and discard any foreign material or shriveled/discolored beans. Then rinse beans with cold water. Next, place the sorted and rinsed beans in the inner cooking pot of the EZ Bean Cooker; add the water, vegetable oil, and seasonings. Select the Black Bean button on the cooker, then push Start.
Once the cook cycle is complete, use caution to manually release the pressure. Remove and discard the bay leaf. Either mash ingredients, using a hand masher and a mixing bowl, or puree in a food processor until soup reaches desired consistency. If desired, add salt to taste. Common garnishes for this soup include: sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped scallions, or cilantro.
