Number of Servings: 6


    1 T extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 c coarsely chopped celery
    1 large onion, coarsely chopped
    1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
    2 large garlic cloves, minced
    1 28 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
    1 1/2 c vegetable stock or water
    2 T tomato paste
    1/2 t paprika
    1/2 t salt
    1/4 t cayenne pepper
    1/8 t freshly ground black pepper
    1 1/2 to 2 c cooked or canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained if canned
    2 T chopped fresh Italian parsley
    1 T tamari
    4 to 5 c hot cooked Texmati, Louisiana pecan or other rice


In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the celery, onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and stock and bring to a simmer.

Stir in the tomato paste, paprika ,salt, cayenne pepper and pepper and reduce the heat to low. Add the pinto beans, parsley and tamari and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve over the hot rice.

***notes*** I did not have any tamari so I left it out. I used brown rice instead of Texmati or Louisiana pecan. I also used water instead of stock.

    Very Good
    This was a good recipe. It is not real hot, spicy but had enough seasoning to be tasty. The only change I made was to add more beans. It looked like a tomato veggie soup with just the pinto beans so I grabbed a can of small red beans from my cupboard to add too. For my own taste I might spice it up - 10/9/10

    great. I added after eating it with rice which was great cabbage to the left overs to make a sassy soup. - 9/29/10
