I have a question about the ingredient "overcooked kidney beans" on the recipe "Happy Accident Minestrone" from aargersi.

Oh that aargersi! She is such a riot! She says in her headnote that she wanted to use fresh beans and accidentally overcooked them by both soaking them and cooking them in a pressure cooker. (I would assume that meant they were the consistency of mush.) She also says that you can overcook your canned beans--I think that means you want them mushy so they act as a thickener.
But here's the thing--you could probably just mush up a can of beans and it would be fine.

You are correct Dr Babs! I cooked those poor beans to death in my pressure cooker which made them perfect for thickening soup ... mashing canned beans will work just fine.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
Yes, based on the book series. Yes, it's great
