"Hoppin Jack" Black Eye Beans with Sausage; Good Blood Type O Food
Wish I had a picture but this is eaten so fast, I don't have time to think about a picture.
Black eyed beans or peas are highly beneficial for blood type Os and As. Here is my version of "Hoppin Jack"......
1 1/2 cup dry black eyed beans, in enough water to soak and swell for a day.
Next day, drain beans and add 1 quart of chicken broth (your own bone broth would be even better) and a tsp. of Real Salt and bring to a boil, lower heat and cook a couple hours or until they are tender. On a sunny day, these cook up nicely in my sun oven or a thermal cooker. Add more water or broth as needed.
While beans are cooking, fry up 1/2 lb. spicy sausage or bacon in some olive oil or butter with.....
1/2 onion chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
1 carrot peeled and chopped
4-5 cloves of garlic chopped
Add meat and vegetables to the beans and continue cooking or add to a casserole dish with lid and bake about 1 hour at 300.
Depending on your spice tolerance, you can add a couple serrano peppers seeded and chopped or a small can of green chili peppers or just some shakes of cayenne pepper. Add more salt if needed.
Serve with shredded cheese on top. You can also add chunks of tube sausage to the beans before serving.
