    Note: Try cooking the lentils and beans the night before to make this a super quick meal.


    1 medium yellow onion
    1 cup cooked lentils
    1 cup cooked black beans
    1 chopped green pepper
    1 - 15 ounce can chopped tomatoes
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning of your choice (I like Italian)
    Water as needed


    1. In a large pot, sauté the onion and green pepper in 2 tablespoons water. As water evaporates, add more until onions are translucent. Add the beans and tomatoes, combining well.

    Note: If you are cooking the beans from scratch, follow the package instructions, or instructions from "Eat Vegan on $4 a Day." Then after draining the beans, add the onions, peppers, tomatoes and spices for the last 10 minutes of cooking.
