Rinse and strain soaked beans. Place in a large saucepan, and cover with water. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain, discarding the water.
If using a pressure cooker, soak beans overnight. Cook beans first in 2 c. water (7 minutes plus cool down), then cook all ingredients except parsley for 3 to 4 minutes under 15 pounds pressure. Stir in parsley.
