    Sounds yummy, easy, inexpensive and healthy - which are 4 out of 5 of my "requirements" for cooking (no. 5 being quick!).  I do have more time on the weekends, so will try this on a Sat. or Sunday.

     TFS!

     Could possibly fit into the same category as quick if you could try soaking the beans overnight and cooking them in a slow cooker.  Not quick, but worry free while cooking, allowing you to do other things until they are done.

    I have soaked them and cooked them in crock pot  ( the house smells really good )
