I came up with this recipe to get some of the beneficial and super beneficial beans for my blood type into my diet. As a type O I normally use adzuki, northern, and fava beans. I recommend that you try to pick a mix of beneficial and super beneficial beans for your type.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (9 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Type AB (6 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (7 beneficials)
  • Type B (6 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (6 beneficials)
  • Type O (5 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (5 beneficials)

  • Soups and Broths

  • 2 cups mix of beans (I use adzuki, northern, and fava)
  • 1/2-1 cup of rice or quinoa
  • 1-2 parsnips, sliced
  • 1-2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 red or green sweet bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large can crushed tomatoes (optional)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil or ghee
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper, to taste

How to make it:
  1. Soak the beans and rice (if you are using rice) over night or all day in water covering them several inches.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans and rice.
  3. Start cooking the beans and rice or quinoa in a large pot covered in plenty of water on medium heat.
  4. Prepare and add the vegetables, canned tomatoes and olive oil/ghee to the pot.
  5. Occasionally stir the pot and check that there is enough water in it.
  6. When the beans and vegetables are nearly done add any sea salt, garlic and red pepper that you want to the pot.
  7. Serve when ready.
  8. Any extra freezes and thaws well for later use.
  9. Enjoy!
