Super Easy Greek-Inspired Beans

I love making dolmades (also called dolmas), and here's a fun dish I came up with to serve with them.  It's really simple to make and mostly requires items you probably already have in the pantry.

Greek-Inspired Beans
Serves 4-6

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small yellow or white onion, chopped
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon dried mint
1 28oz. can of diced tomatoes
1 15oz. can of cannellini beans
1 15oz. can of garbanzo beans

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.  Once hot, add the onion, dill and mint.  Cook until onions are soft and translucent.  Add the diced tomatoes (including juice), cannellini beans and garbanzo beans.  Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
