"What most moved him was a certain meal on beans."
They are called "baked beans," and you can put the pot in the oven instead of cooking these on the stovetop, but I find it easier to control the cooking using the range.
It is rare that a recipe will call for a whole can of tomato paste. Buying tomato paste in a tube allows you to squeeze out the amount that you need and seal the container. After dozens and dozens of moldy cans of tomato paste, I have learned my lesson and this is one of the staples that I keep extra of in my pantry.
Tomato paste usually contains a fair amount of sodium, but there are low-sodium versions that come in the tube if you look for them.
