DIRECTIONS

  • Begin by sauteing on medium heat the onion and garlic in the olive oil until soft.
  • Next add the celery and pepper if using and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, tomato paste, herbs of your choice. Simmer about 10 minutes. (*Alternately, you can add the beans into the pan with the celery, onion, tomato paste, etc. and simmer. Do not allow the beans to dry out, adding a bit of water or stock if necessary.).
  • Place the cooked, warmed beans into a serving bowl.
  • Add the sauce along with the vinegar, salt and pepper into the mashed beans and mix well. Bean mixture should be spreadable but not watery.
  • Adjust seasoning.
