    • 1/2 c. Dry navy beans
    •     Water
    • 1 x Onion, minced
    • 1 stalk celery with leaves, minced
    • 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 c. Canned tomatoes, undrained
    • 1 tsp Salt
    • 1 pch Warm red pepper
    • 1/2 c. Raw rice
    • 2 Tbsp. Grated Parmesan or possibly Romano cheese


    1. 1. Soak the beans overnight in water to cover; or possibly boil two min, and let soak one hour. Simmer till tender, adding more water as needed.
    2. 2. Brown the onion and celery in the oil and add in to the beans. Add in the tomatoes, salt and pepper and water to cover.
    3. 3. Add in the rice, cover tightly and cook, stirring often, till the rice is tender, or possibly about twenty min.
    4. Add in water as needed. When cooked, the mix should have the consistency of a thick stew. Sprinkle cheese on top.
    5. Note: I have used one can of white beans in place of the dry beans and it came out well and which greatly reduces the cooking time.
