Smashed White Bean Puree

14 oz. can white beans (cannelloni or butter beans) drained and rinsed

3 cloves garlic

1 tbsp thaini

juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

5 tsp water

Place ingredients in food processor and puree until well blended

Divide Smashed white beans on plates and top with cauliflower steak, add some mixed greens and tomatoes for a delicious vegan meal

Rita’s notes: For additional flavor, squeeze fresh lemon over cauliflower when serving. After pureeing, I place the smashed white beans in a microwave proof dish and heat for one minute before serving. I think the flavor comes out more when heated.
