Total Time: 10 hrs

"Prepare ahead, beans have to be soaked in water for 8 hours. This is a meal in its own, serve with fresh bread." From my Pol Martin cookbook.

1 celery, stalk diced
2 carrots, pared and diced
2 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
1 1/4 cups dried adzuki, black-eyed, white, northern, red, or black beans (soaked in cold water for
8 hours) (Adzuki & black-eyed beans are Beneficials for Type Os, the rest listed here are Neutrals.)
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (bean seasoning)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
Heat oil in saucepan over med heat. add vegetables and garlic, stir, cover and cook 6 minutes.
Add drained beans and mix. incorporate remaining ingredients. gradually pour in enough cold water to cover beans by 2 1/2 inches. season with salt and black pepper.
Cook partly covered 2 1/2 hours over med heat. stir several times, adding more water as needed.
Serve with fresh bread.
