White Beans in Tomato Sauce

This is about the simplest recipe ever, but it's so good. You remember those cans with white beans in a tomato sauce ("baked beans")? Yeah, this is my version but with a less watery tomato sauce and with so much more flavour. I served my beans with a sprinkling of chopped basil and some pumpkin seeds + avocado and spinach on the side. To make a full meal, serve them on top of your favourite bread.

Before making the recipe you'll need to soak and cook the beans according to the instruction on their package (or you could use canned ones of course, then I would use 2-3 cans of thoroughly rinsed beans).
