Don't Pour Out Bean Broth, Boil Pasta In It Instead
Bean broth is basically water packed with salt and starchy goodness. Instead of pouring it out, boil your pasta in it, which will make it easier to create a rich sauce later on.
Leftover pasta water is often added to sauces to thicken it and help it stick to pasta. This applies to bean broth, which also provides an earthy, buttery, nutty flavor.
To cook your pasta in this starchy liquid, save it by draining your beans over a bowl. Then, dump the bean broth into a pot and add water until you have enough to cook your pasta.
After stirring, you may want to again taste the broth to determine how salty it is, and you can then season it accordingly before boiling your noodles.
