What you describe sounds a lot like a food allergy. Simplified, food allergy creates a craving for food we should never eat. After allergy tests, my allergist said I was probably allergic to dairy and onions (favorite foods: burgers topped with onions and pizza). He said, totally avoid dairy and onions for 2 weeks. If the tests are right, after 2 weeks of total abstinence, you will have no desire to go back to eating either of them. The tests were right.​
Try the allergy test. Stop trying to emulate beans and avoid all flavors that remind you of bean dishes for 2 weeks.​

In post #18, he says he has diabetes and kidney disease and is on dialysis - it's not an allergy. He has to avoid beans and legumes because they're high in potassium.
