I love beans but don't love soaking beans overnight and then cooking them for hours in the middle of the week to make one of my favorite bean dishes. So I assembled this collection of bean conversions to help you make beans for your favorite recipes.
Yes, I know there are advantages to cooking beans from scratch, including nutrition, flavor, and cost, but I want to open a can or two of beans to make a bean stew or Tuscan beans.
Problem: I never know the correct conversion of dry beans to cooked beans to canned beans and that is why I did a little research and am posting what I found here for you to use. These conversions are approximations and depend on the type of bean, the size, and the shape of the bean.
