1-2 cups tomato juice or canned tomatoes
1 1/2 cups red beans or red kidney beans (1 19oz can)

your favourite low-fat cooking spray to saute' them, or braise
in water, stock or tomato juice.
2. Add tomatoes/juice and seasoning to taste. Simmer about 10 minutes.
3. Add beans. Simmer 5-10 minutes more. (My S.O. likes me to
simmer this until the beans start to disintegrate. Others may like
the beans firmer.)
