TIP OF THE DAY: No-Gas Beans

Some people avoid beans because of the gas they can create.

Yet beans are not just tasty; they’re an important and inexpensive source of protein that has been cultivated by man for more than 7,000 years.

Oxygen magazine’s new book, Pick It Kick It, offers this tip:

  • Soak beans for several hours or overnight in cold water.
  • Change the water before cooking.

See our Bean Glossary to discover many beautiful beans. There are more than 4,000 cultivars of beans in the United States (and many more worldwide). We don’t feature nearly that many, but you’re certain to make new discoveries.
