Bruschetta with White Beans and Olive Oil

White beans are a staple of the Florentine diet. During the summer, they are sold fresh in their weathered yellowed pods, and though the shucking takes awhile, the beans cook in a fraction of the time of their dried counterparts. By the time the olive harvest rolls around in midautumn, dried beans have filled the pantry. Nothing does greater justice to the sharp, fruity flavor of freshly pressed olive oil than a slice of toasted bread smothered with warm beans and generously doused with the pungent, new oil.

Good; but an easier way to do it
August 25, 2011
I really like beans. Canned beans are okay with me. You don't need to exert more effort by soaking beans overnight. I made this for myself. I toasted country bread in a simple toaster. I poured canned beans over it. I drizzled very excellent olive oil over the top. I did not have fresh sage, but I used tarragon instead. It was simple and delicious, and very easy my prep way.
Pros: Quick, Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

This was very easy to prepare, quick and simple and an instant crowd-pleaser.
I would definitely make it again, especially as it uses healthy ingredients like white beans and olive oil, plus garlic which I try to include every day for its healing benefits.
The only problem is being tempted to eat too much! Yummy.
