Microwave: Place 1 cup (235ml) of Bean Bistro in a large microwaveable bowl. Add 1 cup (235ml) of water. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, just until water begins to boil. Attend microwave during cooking to prevent boiling over. Remove from microwave, cover tightly, and let cool before serving.
Stovetop: Add 1 cup (235ml) Bean Bistro to 1 cup (235ml) boiling water in a medium-sized pot. Stir just until the product is moistened. Remove from heat, cover tightly, and let cool before serving.
