White Bean Bruschetta

This is fresh.  You're going to love it.

 It's also easy... I don't tend to make recipes that are time-consuming.

I whipped out my mini-ninja chopper for this recipe and it made it so quick and effortless.

1 can white beans ($0.67 at Harris Teeter!)
3 regular tomatoes, or a container of cherry tomatoes is what I used
1 red onion
2 cloves garlic
Fresh or freeze-dried basil (I used freeze-dried)
4 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt and pepper 
1 french baguette

Toss your tomatoes, your garlic, and 1/3 of your red onion into your chopper and chop them right up.  Drain and rinse your can of beans.  Put chopped vegetables, beans, and basil (however much you like) in a bowl, and add 3 tbsp. olive oil.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Slice a few pieces of bread, and drizzle them with olive oil.  Broil them in the oven, about 3 inches beneath the broiler, for 1 - 2 minutes.

Top your crispy bread with your fresh, white bean bruschetta and enjoy your lovely lunch!
