Pinto Bean Stew (recipe)

Ingredients:

(2) 15 oz. cans (rinsed) pinto beans (or dried beans that are cooked)

4-5 diced tomatoes

1 chopped onion

1 squeezed lemon

3-4 smashed! garlic cloves

Cumin

Parsley (fresh or dried)

Salt

Oil

  1. Sauté onions in oil until transparent.
  2. Add tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add beans and cook for another 3 minutes.
  4. Add garlic, lemon juice, cumin, parsley, and salt-cook until everything is soft.
  5. Adjust the flavorings to your liking (add more lemon, cumin, or oil if you prefer)
  6. That’s it!  Now eat it!

It’s easy, healthy, and full of flavor.

Good protein from the beans, lycopene from the cooked tomotoes, and cumin is a spice that is known to be good for the stomach (if I or my daughters’ bellies hurt, my husband makes potatoes and adds cumin to it and makes us eat it like medicine!).

Maybe I’ll share that recipe another time…

Share and enjoy!
