Soak beans in 2 quarts water overnight.

Drain the water. Cook the beans in 8 cups of liquid in pressure cooker under high pressure for 10 to 15 minutes. Allow pressure to release naturally.

In the meantime saute onions, celery, bell pepper and garlic in 1/4 cup water or vegetable stock in a skillet for about 5 minutes.

Add the onion mixture to the beans along with the tomatoes, lemon juice, spices and 2 more cups of water. Cook uncovered for 30 minutes longer or until beans are tender.

If not using pressure cooker, simmer the beans in 12 cups of liquid in a large pot uncovered for 2 hours. Add the onion mixture, tomatoes, lemon juice, spices and cook 30 minutes longer or until beans are tender.
