Bean paste

This is less of a recipe and more of an idea. Modify as you wish. This is a simpler version of Howard's Bean Paste in Sue Dengate's Failsafe Cookbook. So, you might want to look that up for a more flavour-filled version.

1 can of Cannellini beans (450g)
A splash of canola or sunflower oil

Rinse beans well in a colander. Add to food processor. Add a splash of canola or sunflower oil ( I suppose about 1-2 tablespoons). Process until "pastey".

I love this on Ryvitas (original, red packet).
P.S. I'm sure it would work with kidney beans too but I personally prefer the taste of the Cannellini.

** One brand calls Cannellini beans, "white beans" but if you look at the Italian side on the tin is says "Fagioli Cannellini".
