things to do with bean pot liquor

sometimes i keep the liquor from cooking my beans separate from the beans, and i've got a decent amount that is frozen. The best use i've found for it is poaching eggs in it. What else do folks do with bean pot liquor once beans removed?

  1. Oaxacans use black bean pot liquor to cook rice in. . . .

    1. Thinning hummus, black bean dip, etc. if too thick. As a vegetable stock too.

      1. I used black-eyed pea and collard pot liquors as my stock for soup.

        1. As a replacement for stock in making enchiladas for vegetarians.

          1. Can add to soup in lieu of stock or water.
