Re: Gassy beans

<< ou can sprout beans the same way you would sprout any kind of seed. Here 
is my method:
      Soak the beans overnight in cold water. Drain and put in bowl in 
refridgerator, do NOT cover or you will grow mold. Leave for a couple of days 
until a 1/4 inch sprout grows.  Then cook as usual, no more pre-soaking is 
needed. They will cook a little quicker, too.  While in the fridge you can 
stir them a couple of times if it makes you feel better!
      Enjoy.  Linda.
 p.s. Spay or sprinkle a little water on the beans in the fridge if they 
start to dry out. >>
Your method with the 1/4 growth of sprouts...I am curious as to the taste, 
etc. I imagine one now has beans w/a kind veggie combo texture? Do the 
sprouts make it even healthier? Any particular type of beans this method 
works best with? If used in recipes, how do the sprouts affect same? Thanks 
in advance for reply.  Sunny
