Expert Tips

Tomatoes and tomato products keep dry beans and other legumes from softening even after hours of cooking. That's why we wait until the beans and lentils are tender before adding the canned tomatoes and tomato sauce in this recipe.

Add corn muffins from the bakery to round out this make-ahead meal.
