Hi everyone.

I've been making heaps of veggie soups lately, with much bounty from the garden, and some store-bought. Now I want to start adding split peas, cannellini beans, lentils etc. Because these take a while to cook, and my soups are usually done in my big pressure cooker, how would it go cooking a large amount of the dried beans, and freezing them so I could just pop them in with the other veggies when I make the soup? Do they freeze ok when they are cooked? They don't have to keep their shape really, is a soup after all :)

I know I could just try it and see, just thought someone might have some advice. cheers.

Yes they freeze perfectly well. If you were wanting to defrost them and use them for anything other than soup then I would suggest just slightly undercooking then freezing.
