Beans Without Gas

Dried beans are a good cheap source of protein, fiber, etc. They also tend to cause flatulence. You can reduce the gas quotient of beans by boiling them for 1/2 hour, discarding the liquid, soaking for several hours, and discarding that liquid.

If you are not eating beans because of triglycerides, you will be interested to learn that this method works because it is those triglycerides that soak out, and get discarded. I sometimes discard the soaking/cooking water more than two times, to get rid of more stinky triglycerides.

Editors Note: This also works with canned beans. Rinse them well before adding them to chili, salads, etc.
