how do you cook them[I know haricot need soaking] and recipes using them? AND are any of them gluten free? Thanks again cooks extrordinaire!

cloffie - get yourself a copy of 'meals without meat' by Alison Holst (most libraries will have it if you don't want to buy one) ...
there is a couple of pages in the back on beans & pulses and the soaking/cooking times for these that are definately worth reading & copying for future reference.

don't forget lentils. . red lentils cook in the blink of an eye and thicken stews, soups etc. I like them just boiled with salt, pepper (lots) , parsley , a bit of curry and a knob of butter on brown toast. ( or Indian style dahl) really quick to cook compare to beans and not at all expensiive
