Warm cannellini beans with plenty of olive oil, scented with garlic and sage, then puree just a few of the beans with bean broth before returning them to the pan, and you have what we call creamy beans. Delicious with sausages.

INGREDIENDS

Serves 4
8 sausages
2 garlic cloves, peeled and squashed
6 sage leaves
5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
500g cooked cannellini beans
Salt and black pepper

DIRECTIONS
1 Grill or pan-fry the sausages until browned and cooked. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, warm the olive oil and gently fry the squashed garlic and sage leaves until fragrant. Add the cooked white beans to the pan and stir until they are warmed through and coated with olive oil.

2 Transfer about a third of the beans from the pan into a bowl. Either mash by hand or use a stick blender to reduce the beans to a puree with a ladleful of bean cooking water, then return to the frying pan. Stir, adding a little more bean cooking water if necessary. Taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly.

3 Divide the creamy beans between four plates and top each with slices of cooked sausage. Serve.
