Can someone help me with preparing and cooking beans?
One way around this is to buy pre-cooked canned beans. They aren’t as cheap as the dried beans but are just as good and while you spend a little more you save on cooking costs. Mung beans don’t need to be boiled, just soaked, you can also sprout them to grow your own bean sprouts as you can sprout most dried beans into nutritious veg, either buy a sprouter which are fairly cheap or use a large jar with the top covered by muslin or similar cloth, rinse the beans a couple of times a day and leave on a windowsill over a few days. If you do decide to use dried beans which are cheap, tasty and nutritious just follow the instructions, there is nothing to fear and everything to gain, delicious bean curries, casseroles, home made hommous and pates, I can recommend the butter bean pate – its easy to make and delicious!
