Throughout this time check to ensure the water does not evaporate, replenish with 1-2 cups if needed.Once the beans have cooked, they will expand and soft to the touch, test the readiness by using a fork to gently squash a few.
  2. When cooked, drain off liquid and leave to one side to cool.
  3. Preheat the oven on gas mark 4/ 350f
  4. In a large bowl add all of the ingredients excluding the eggs.
  5. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and pour them into the large bowl.
  6. Finally add the cooled beans and use an immersion stick to breakdown the ingredients. If using a food processor, pulse for 1-2 minutes, keep an eye on the formation of the batter.
