 Here's a recipe from Jane Brody's Good Food Gourmet that claims to
 "de-gas" chickpeas:
 Chickpea Soup Illiria
 1       lb      dried chickpeas,picked over, rinsed, and soaked 10 hours or
 longer in water to cover by at least 4 inches
 2       tbsp    baking soda
 6       c       broth
 2       c       water
 2       c       finely chopped carrots
 1 1/2    c       finely chopped onions
 1/4       c       fresh lemon juice
 1/2       tsp     salt, or to taste (optional)
 1/4       tsp     white pepper
 Drain the chickpeas, and sprinkle them with the baking soda, tossing the
 chickpeas to coat them well. Put the chickpeas in a large saucepan. Let the
 chickpeas stand for 30 minutes
 Add enough water to cover the chickpeas, bring the water to a boil, and boil
 the chickpeas for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse the chickpeas with cold water.
 Add more cold water to the pan, and rub the chickpeas gently to remove their
 skins. Keep pouring off and adding new water until all the skins are gone.
 Drain the chickpeas.
 Place the chickpeas in a large saucepan. Add the broth and the 2 cups of
 water, and bring the liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat, and boil the
 chickpeas gently for 50 minutes or until they are nearly soft.
 Add the carrots, onions, lemon juice, salt(if desired), and pepper. Return
 the soup to the boil, reduce the heat, and simmer the soup 10 minutes longer
 or until the chickpeas and veggies are soft.
