I found out about this little thing called Hing, no it's not a Dr.Seuss poem it's a really hing, I mean thing. It's other name is Asafoetida, and you use the tiniest amount from the tiniest jar to make your beans easily digestible and absorb all the fantastic plant based protein!
I'm sold. Make sure you buy pure Hing no fillers.
