Cali-Style White Bean Bruschetta

Preparation Time: 10 minutes, 30 minutes to marinate
Cooking Time: 3 minutes, to toast bread
Serving Size: 6-8 servings


Bruschetta is traditionally made with tomatoes, basil, and garlic, but this “Cali”-Style Bruschetta uses white beans and avocados for added flavor and health benefits. White beans are full of cholesterol-lowering fiber, which helps regulate blood sugar and detoxify the digestive tract.


Navy beans are a great source of iron, without the fat and calories that come with animal foods. Eating beans are especially important for women who are more prone to iron deficiency.


1 can organic white navy beans, drained and washed
1 avocado, cubed
Handful of fresh basil, chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or cut in fours
Splash of olive oil
Splash of balsamic vinegar
Sea salt and black pepper
Your favorite bread or baguette


Stir all together and let marinate for at least 30 minutes. Taste, and season with salt as necessary.

Toast your favorite bread or baguette and top with bruschetta!
