Beans for One

Here is something easy and delicious to add some protein to your dinner.

3 baby carrots, chopped
olive oil
2 T chopped onion
1/2 c pinto beans
1 T tomato paste
1 bay leaf
dash soy sauce
scant 1 T paprika

Sautee carrots in oil until browned. Add onion, sprinkle with salt, and cook until browned. Add beans, tomato paste, bay leaf, soy sauce and paprika. Add water just to cover beans. Smash some beans against the side of the pot so the liquid will thicken. Cook about 12 minutes more, till sauce is the thickness you like. Serve over pasta.

This kind of looks like baked beans over pasta. It looks really good! That broccoli is perfect. :)
