16 oz can pinto or red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup thick tomato sauce (I mixed a 6-oz can tomato sauce
with enough water to make a cup)
1 Tbs soy sauce or tamari
1 tsp chili powder (optional)
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dried basil
Heat oil--saute onion and bell pepper 3-4 minutes. Add
remaining ingredients [not buns, of course] and bring to
a simmer. Mash beans lightly with fork or potato masher.
Simmer, loosely covered, 5-7 minutes or til preferred
consistency, stirring occasionally. Serve on buns.
