  • medium pan
  • knives
  • mixing spoons
Ingredients
  • Meal starter pouch
  • 1 (15-oz) can red beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (28-oz) can crushed tomatoes

    Loved the flavors in this dish. I served it over riced cauliflower , which stretched it into more serving without alot of calories.

    We liked this original recipe, with varying tolerances for the spice level. I did add 2 tsp maple syrup & a tbsp of unflavored, unsweetened plant milk to balance it for us. Also we served it on top of torn greens, & topped with dried chives, sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds. Will definitely purchase again.
