Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type B Non Secretor (3 beneficials)
  • Type O (4 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (4 beneficials)

  • Side Dish

  • 1 cup dry adzuki beans [or substitute BTD compliant legume]
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic
  • onion [medium or to taste]
  • sea salt [to taste]
  • 1 slice of fresh ginger
  • 14.5 or 16 ounce can diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 3/4 Tablespoon chili powder, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 ounce can chopped green chilies, drained

How to make it:
  1. Place 1 cup dry beans in sauce pan - cover with water about 2 or 3 inches above beans.
  2. Bring to a rolling boil and boil 2 or 3 minutes. Cover and set aside for 4 hours.
  3. Drain and discard soaking water.
  4. Add fresh water about 2 inches higher than the beans.
  5. Add a slice of fresh ginger and bring to a boil slowly, skimming off any foam that may appear (the ginger seems to keep that from happening).
  6. When it reaches a full boil, reduce heat, partially cover pan and simmer until beans are tender, probably 1 to 1-1/2 hours, and can be mashed with a fork.
  7. Stir occasionally during this time and add more water if necessary.
  8. When cooked, drain water, discard ginger and rinse beans.
  9. Fry ground meat with garlic, salt, and onion.
  10. Drain fat and add meat to beans. Add other ingredients.
  11. Heat to boiling - reduce heat and simmer 15 - 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
