Vegetarian Student Kitchen: Easy Bean Stew

I was served this at a house party a few weeks ago. Deceptively simple, this is very tasty, nutritious and easy to make.

3 x 400g tins borlotti beans, drained
1 onion, julienned
2 cloves of garlic, crushed or finely chopped
The leaves of 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 x 400g tin tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
Salt & pepper
Crusty bread, to serve

1. Prepare the vegetables and remove the leaves from the rosemary
2. Saute the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, before adding the rosemary leaves
3. Saute for another 2-3 minutes, before adding the beans, tomato paste and tomatoes, and mixing well
4. Add salt and pepper to taste
5. Simmer for 30 minutes and serve hot with the bread
