Here's a little time saver recipe that my husband and I fall back on when we don't have a lot time. It does require forethought as you'll need to use a crock pot, but it simple to get going. And simple is what you need to reduce stress in the middle of the week! 

• 2 cans black beans, with the liquid!! 
• 4 roma tomatoes, diced 
• 1 red or yellow onion, diced 
• 6 cloves garlic, minced 
• 1 tablespoon of cumin 
• 1 small can tomato paste

**It's best to make this EARLY in the day...the longer it cooks, the better it is!** 
1) Turn Crock Pot on low, and throw everything in. You can sauté the onions first in a little oil, but it's just as good when you don't. 
2) When it's good and hot (I usually give it at least 3 hours!), serve it over rice, or just with vegan cornbread and a good green salad.

Serves: 6-8
