Quick and tasty lunch or side dish for dinner.
Top Review by Anu
Having to cook beans from scratch (with pre-soaking!), since we don't get them in cans here, has always made me think twice before making a beans dish because it takes so much longer. But this recipe was absolutely worth it! I used red kidney beans, which the tomatoes complimented perfectly and gave them a lovely tang. Also, I used black pepper since I didn't have cayenne, so it was less spicy, but it still made a great side for rotis at dinner tonight. Thanks Dorothy, this one's for keeps!
