Default recipe - SBD friendly?

I had this fabulous dish last night. and I'm too lazy to figure out what phase it might be.
from smittenkitchen.com
supposed to be served over rice or with naan.

Red Kidney Bean Curry [Rajmah]

This is an Indian cousin of your favorite spicy red bean chili.

Serves 6

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger (I use half this; Iím tepid in the fresh ginger department)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 plum tomato, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 large green chili, chopped (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground tumeric
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
8 ounce can of tomato sauce or 8 ounces of one of your choice
3 cups boiled red kidney beans or 30 ounces canned red kidney beans, undrained
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (or parsley, if youíre cilantro-averse)

Heat oil in a deep sauce pan over medium heat for one minute. Add ginger, garlic, onion, green chili, and let sizzle for one minute. Add the tomato sauce, salt and remaining spices and cook for an additional five minutes, stirring frequently. Add the kidney beans with water or canned red kidney beans (undrained) plus one additional cup of water, and tomatoes. Bring it to a boil, then reduce to medium heat and let cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Garnish with cilantro.

Phase I. How about posting it in the recipe section. I just may make it for dinner tonight as I have all the ingredients on hand for a change.

That's what I thought, Ruth. and you could serve it with brown rice or whole wheat naan for phase 2-3.
I wasn't sure if it would be too much oil, even though it is a "good" fat.

Unfortunately, the rest of my family didn't think it was as fabulous as I did.
