- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 onion or 2 green onions, chopped finely
- 1 tomato, chopped into small pieces
- 1 can white or red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a small pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Cook the onions for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until they start to soften.
Add the tomato, mix well, and cook for 10 minutes to soften the tomato.
Finally, add the beans, salt and pepper, heat to warm through and serve hot.
This recipe doubles nicely if you have more people to feed, and can be served with a side salad and your favorite bread.
