Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


Started out dried black; then first soaking with 1 tsp baking soda--about 1/3 went brown

The draining water was very dark. But I didn't want to use it since it had the baking soda. Then I forgot to cook them so I soaked them again (no baking soda this time) and MORE turned brown.

By the time I cooked them, they were about 60% brown and the rest were still black. So I guess I can't complain too much. Plus I added carrots. But I just don't understand how restaurant versions end up so black.
