Stewed White Beans

These go well with the Pork Tenderloin and Bacon recipe that I posted! :) Weber's Real Grilling strikes again.

4 rip plum tomatoes, about 1 pound, cored
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1/2 C finely diced yellow onion
1 TBSP minced garlic
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
2 cans (15 ounces each) cannellini beans, rinsed
1/4 C lightly packed torn fresh basil leaves

1. To prepare the beans: Grill the tomatoes over direct medium heat until the skins are loosened, 6 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally. Cut the tomatoes into 1- inch chunks. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil, then cook the onion, garlic, and pepper flakes until softened, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes and beans, stir to combine, and season to taste with salt and pepper. When the beans come to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the basil to the beans

Serve with Pork Tenderloin and Bacon (or what you like) :)
