Food for Thought:
1⁄2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon (tsp) olive oil
1⁄2 cup thinly sliced celery
1⁄2 cup thinly sliced carrot
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes in juice
2 1⁄2 cups water
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1⁄2 tsp dried cumin

1 can (15 ounces) white (cannellini or Great Northern) beans, rinsed and drained
1 jar (about 1⁄2 cup) roasted red bell pepper, rinsed and patted dry, then coarsely chopped
1/2 cup green beans (optional)
In a large saucepan, cook onion in olive oil over low heat until onion begins to color (about 5 minutes). Add celery, carrots and garlic and stir for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, water, oregano, basil and cumin. Cover and cook over medium heat until vegetables are tender (about 5–10 minutes). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
