I have yet to make this, but just wanted to point out that the nutrional info is probably correct - it uses 1 tbsp oil for 4 people, and the nutrional info is per serving.

This has become my staple lunch! Now that I'm having it regularly, I just use unpeeled tomatoes which make no difference to me. I've also mixed up the beans, adzuki beans are a great option as are cannellini beans. Just be aware that the calories cannot be correct as 1 tbp of of olive oil = 100cal so the dish is more like 200cal. I have it with a slice of bread too which makes it 300cal. I'm going to aim to get a nice vinegar and try having just that with no oil. We'll see.
