The inspiration for the title of this thread was some graffiti I saw a long time ago. It was a take on a Heinz advertisement: "Heinze meanz beanz!".
(For Heinze tinned beans, obviously). Then someone wisecracker took it upon themselves to graffiti Heinze meanz fartz
all over the inner-city.
Anyway, beans & farting:
I used to eat all varieties of beans & lentils in my 100% vegetarian days. The things I could do
with them! You wouldn't believe!
Recently (having become a moderate meat eater again, for a few years now) I felt an urge to indulge myself again in some of my old bean/lentil favourites. But I had completely forgotten about the wind
factor! Ah yes, & it all came back to me: all those theories for taking the fart factor out of beans! Like, changing the water they were soaking in, prior to cooking, many times .... or throwing out the water after boiling them for 10 minutes & replacing with fresh water for the rest of the cooking process ...
Well, none of these methods really did the trick, I'm afraid. Beans did
What I'd like to know is this: has any one of you discovered a sure-fire method of cooking unwindy
beans & lentils? If you have, I'd love for you to share the secret!
Oh & any delicious bean/pea/lentil favourites would be most appreciated, too!
