Beans and Rice

2 cans of red kidney beans rinsed well in a colander

2 large onions finely chopped

2 large garlic cloves finely chopped

2 tsp oil

1/4 cup tomato sauce

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

1/4 tsp Tuscan herbs

2 bay leaves

pinch of oregano

pinch of thyme

pinch of cayenne pepper

salt to taste

water

Heat the oil in a medium size pan. Saute the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add all the spices and saute for two more minutes. Then add the beans and enough water to barely cover everything. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low for ten minutes. Use a potato masher to partially mash the beans. Add the tomato sauce and salt and simmer for 5-10 more minutes. Take bay leaves out and serve over instant brown rice.

Next time I gotta double the recipe ’cause this baby was soooo good, we wished we had seconds! 🙂
