Most recipes call for the beans to be drained so dry beans that have been precooked are a good substitute especially because you can control the salt. However, very few recipes call for the beans to be put in dry. Your recipe will take hours to cook and it would effect the texture. So just cook them first. One notable exception is lentils. The have a very short cooking time. Put these in dry with confidence but you might have to increase your liquid a bit.

Can I Substitute Dried Beans for Canned?

Hey I didn't really think about this cause I don't measure, I just add a bunch of beans dry(cooked) or canned in my soups along with other veggies but its good to know anyway.
