Prepare a sous vide bath with an immersion circulator and polycarbonate tank with lid. Set the temperature to 90ºC.

Measure the cooking water in proportion 3 to 1 water to soaked legumes. Dissolve 1% salt by weight in the water. Ex. 1g of salt per 100g water.

Combine the soaked legumes and salt solution in a vacuum bag and clip it to the side of the bath. This will allow you to check the doneness of the beans as you discover your preference.

Cook the beans sous vide at 90ºC.

When the beans are fully cooked, allow them to cool in their liquid, in an ice bath for 40 minutes. Reserve the beans in their liquid until ready to use.
