Author Notes: This recipe is really easy to throw together since it relies on pantry staples (aka stuff that fits into a college student's budget). The balsamic vinegar adds a little sweetness without being too overbearing. It's good with pita chips or crudite and also makes a tasty sandwich spread.StephanieSays

Makes: 1.5 cups

  • 15.5 ounces can of white beans (Cannellini or Northern are good)
