Soak and cook in the usual manner:
2 cups small white (navy) beans in 4 cups water.
Add to the mixture:
1 Tbsp dry minced onion
3 Tbsp Tomato powder
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp basil
and cook on low for at least an hour or two - until the flavors are well blended. Alternatively, you can make this recipe in a crockpot.
Serve in bowls, garnishing with parmesan or mozzarella cheese. Goes well with homemade garlic bread and salad.
