 - 0.5 pack Campers Pantry freeze dried beans.
 - 1 onion.
 - 4 garlic cloves.
 - 1 tin of whole peeled tomatoes.
 - 1 satchel of tomato paste.
 - Salt.
 - Oil.

The fridge ingredients:

Theses quantities will feed two (large portions) or three (smaller portions).

The equipment:

 - Cast iron pot or camp oven to suit the group size.
 - Chopping board and knife.
 - Wooden spoon.
 - Coals (forearm size logs will quickly produce wonderful coals).
