Italian fresh tomato cannellini beans

1 Can no sodium cannellini beans in water (drained and rinsed)
3 Cloves garlic roughly chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
4 Roma tomatoes diced
Fresh basil ribboned

Heat oil over medium low and add beans.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add in half of tomatoes and cook for about 3 minutes.  Add in garlic and vinegar and lower heat.  Cook until tomatoes and garlic are soft, about 3 more minutes.  Taste and adjust salt & pepper seasoning as needed.  Plate and top with remaining fresh tomatoes and fresh sliced basil.  I garnished with toasted sourdough bread for sopping up the juices.

I came home tonight in a hurry and starving. I had fresh tomatoes and basil in my garden so I ran with that.  This makes about 1.5 cups of food.  I served it in a half cup of bean portion.  For one serving it was 239 calories.
