Are there any foods you can eat which would counteract the billious effect of sprouts?
Sprouts make you phaarp. So, are there any Nigella-esque tips for other foods you can add to the Christmas menu that will help disperse the gas bubbles before they seep out?
asked in sprouts, christmas, phaarp

Hiheels answers:

Nigella-esque you say?
Yes, mint - I would recommend either sucking on a hard, minty ball or indulging in luscious, soft, yielding, rich chocolate infused with the essence of mint that gently flows down your throat.

Nigella-y enough for ya?

I think if sprouts arec ooked too much they may have that effect - don't let them get too soft.
Also, cooking them with chopped chestnuts seem to stop the problem.
I do both of these things and none of us ever seems to suffer from this problem.

Not so much what to add but keep the pepper away from them and eat the sage and onion stuffing with them. Sage has a calming effect on the stomach as do other aniseed flavour herbs like fennel. You could even have a Pernod Christmas.
