After that, pour a large amount of cold purified water, so that it is higher than this ingredient by 12-15 centimeters, and leave at room temperature for 7-8, but of course, 12 hours is better, that is, all night. During this time, the beans will increase several times and almost all gases that cause unpleasant fermentation in the stomach will come out of it.

We season the products with olive oil, laurel leaf, thyme, chicken seasoning, to taste the salt and two types of ground pepper: red and black. Gently mix the ingredients with a wooden or silicone kitchen spatula, cover the crock-pot with a tight-fitting lid and set Beans mode 1 hour or Soup or Stew for 1.5-2 hoursalthough the duration of the process may vary depending on the desired density of the beans.

When the multicooker shuts off, notifying about it with a characteristic beeping or buzzing signal, we very carefully raise the lid so as not to burn yourself with steam, and look if the density of the beans does not suit you, then we cook them to the desired consistency.
If the texture of the beans is suitable, then everything is simple, we spread the fragrant dish in portions on plates and serve to the table.
