platter full of flavor…

Tonight was a small plates type of night… fresh mozz, leftover broccoli rabe, medjool dates and a briny cannellini bean purée smeared thickly on a biased slice of bread!
The cannellini purée was thick and full of texture. One can of cannellini beans [rinsed] was pulsed with Greek olives, some fresh oregano and fruity olive oil… the outcome was a creamy, slightly salty spread that paired amazingly well with a beautiful bottle of Gavi! The wine cleaned off our palates and helped prepare us for bites of everything else that was on display for the pickin’s. And pickin’ was just what we did!

at a low simmer…
