  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

  2. Bring the beans to a boil and then drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the water.
  3. Place the garlic and the beans in a food processor along with the parsley, oil, sage and the reserved cooking liquid. Process until thick and creamy, and then season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
