Baked Beans: more beans, less gas

Beans are a great source of protien and dietary fiber but most avoid them because they can also be a source of gas. Preparing them this way will guarantee less gas later. It does take quite a bit of time, but it makes about 12 cups so you can throw some in the freezer for later.Submitted by: ALEEMK

"This is one of my favorites because it is easy, fast and simple and versatile. If you like brown rice, I recommend using it in this and all recipes. It takes a bit longer to cook but is worth the wait, for both nutrition and taste. There is an instant brown rice on the market now, too."
