Ingredients:  
1 lb. small navy beans, washed and picked over
1 c. extra-virgin olive oil
4 fresh sage leaves (see note)
4 garlic cloves, peeled and trimmed
2 tsp. kosher salt

Directions:
Directions:
Place the beans in a heavy stockpot with 7 cups of water, 3 tbs. olive oil, sage leaves, garlic cloves and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat , and simmer, uncovered, until the beans are very soft, about 1 hour, adding more water if necessary. The beans will cook down almost to a puree, and most of the water will be absorbed. Remove the sage leaves and allow the beans to cool for 10 minutes.

In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, puree the bean mixture, adding the remaining olive oil through the feed tube. Process until the consistency is smooth.

NOTE: If fresh sage is unavailable, do not use dried. You may substitute a sprig of fresh rosemary or 8 leaves of dried rosemary.
