Beans are diuretic, but these little black turtle beans are
good for stamina. When the kidneys are tired and people are
suffering from fatigue as well as fluid retention and/or
edema, this soup can be consumed in large quantities on a
daily basis for weeks or months. Some people will lose as
much as 30 pounds in ten days IF the weight consists mainly
of fluids rather than fat. Where there is a mixture of fluids
and fat, more spices will promote fat metabolism and the
turmeric will help emulsify and remove the fat from the gall
bladder and kidneys.
or virgin olive oil
cloves of garlic
yellow or red onion
rinsed black turtle
dried red chili
freshly grated ginger
(or ginger powder)
Sauté in cumin seeds in clarified butter
or extra virgin olive oil until golden brown. Do not burn the seeds!
Add chopped garlic and chopped onion and sauté until
the onions are translucent. Add black turtle beans and ample water
(use large pot.) Add the chili pepper. When the beans start
to become a bit tender, add the turmeric powder and some ginger.
When the beans are completely tender, add the bouillon for flavor.
While the beans continue to cook, drink the liquid
(which should be a bit thick.) Top off the water and add
more turmeric and ginger and bouillon to taste. Eat as much as
desired, but do not refrigerate and reheat. The beans can be kept
warm in a slow cooker and eaten several times a day to build stamina
and drain fluids from the body.
