Fat Tuesday's Skinny Red Beans

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MajKaj

This is a modified version from the Moosewood Low-fat Favorite Cookbook. This is a flavorful dish that works well over rice on cool autumn evenings. Easy to make. Don't skimp on the herb measurements... this is a flavorful (but NOT too spicy) dish.
