Cook rice according to directions.
About 10 minutes before it's done, spray some non-stick spray in a pan. Add garlic, let fry for a minute or less (depending on how hungry you are). Add tomato. Drain 2/3 of water from beans, Add them to the garlic and tomato.
Tear up basil into little pieces, sprinkle on top of beans along with other spices. Let cook for a few minutes, until a good bit of the water cooks off and the tomato is soft.
