 Yummy easy recipe...  Not sophisticated, but VERY tasty and filling
 after a long day at work.
 Kate's Pseudo Red Beans and Rice
 - ------------------------------
 1 large onion, chopped
 3 cloves garlic, smashed
 3 ribs of celery, chopped
 1 green pepper, chopped
 1 red pepper, chopped
 1-2 cups tomato juice or canned tomatoes
 1 1/2 cups red beans or red kidney beans (1 19oz can)
 1 tbsp Tabasco (or more)
 cajun seasoning (or use chili powder, cumin, a bay leaf and oregano)
 black pepper
 1.  Cook onion, garlic, peppers and celery until soft.  Use
 your favourite low-fat cooking spray to saute' them, or braise 
 in water, stock or tomato juice.
 2.  Add tomatoes/juice and seasoning to taste.  Simmer about 10 minutes.
 3.  Add beans.  Simmer 5-10 minutes more.  (My S.O. likes me to
 simmer this until the beans start to disintegrate.  Others may like
 the beans firmer.)
 4.  Serve over cooked rice.
