Dried kombu, a kelp used in Japanese cooking is the secret. It not only enhances the flavor of your beans, but makes the beans easier to digest. Adding kombu to your cooking water tenderizes the beans and eliminates the need for soaking overnight. Dried Kombu can easily be found in Asian groceries, Health food stores, or in the Asian section of most supermarkets.
