Tomato Beans

1lb white beans, washed
Enough water to cover beans
1 can whole tomatoes
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP cumin powder
1 tsp salt
1 TBSP Olive Oil
1 cup water


1. Wash very well the white beans and place in a bowl with enough water to cover the beans with about an inch over to give room to expand. Let sit for about 2 hours.
2. Take the tomatoes out of the can and cut in half and then slice them.
3. Heat a pan and add olive oil, fry the onions until glassy, add the garlic until the garlic releases their fragrance. Add the tomatoes and beans, plus water.
4. Bring to boil and then reduce to lowest heat that will keep simmering. Let cook approx 1 hour until all the water has removed and beans are cooked through.
