How long is cooked vegetarian beans safe to eat?

Fortunately, all beans are vegetarian! Some beans and pulses, such as chick peas, are particularly beneficial to vegetarians and vegans because they contain more protein and iron. Dried beans last indefinitely if kept dry, but need to be soaked overnight to soften them before cooking, although you can just cook them for longer. However, most pulses, and certainly chick peas, are not poisonous when raw. Kidney beans are poisonous when raw, and should be soaked and then cooked until soft. Tinned kidney beans are often pre-cooked and safe to eat straight out of the tin. Pickled beans will last for months, as will frozen beans. Freshly cooked beans should be eaten on the day, and if refridgerated should be eaten within 3 days.
