I absoultely LOVE beans--but haven't been able to eat them for about 2 years now. Does anyone know of a bean recipe that's gas free? My mom had said one time that a friend of hers has a recipe that takes the gas out of beans. You soak the beans in baking soda. I don't know if this works or not--but I'm planning on trying to find some info online about this process. I will let everyone know if I find a way to do this. I've tried beano--but it doesn't seem to work that well for me and I've just stopped eating them (along with other gassy foods) all together. The gas is awfully painful!!! If anyone has any recipes please let me know...thanks!
