Overnight in 6 cups of water, soak 2 cups dried red beans, kidney or pinto beans. Drain and rinse well.
Cook in kettle with:
1 large onion, chopped

2 quarts boiling water
After beans have cooked 45 minutes, add:

Continue cooking beans until tender, 20-40 minutes. Most of the liquid should have cooked into the beans and TVP. Taste and add salt.
