BEAN AND MINT ON CROSTINI

I used lima beans for their simple flavor and smooth texture. They took well to the lemon and mint, and made a nice pairing.

Ingredients:
2 cans lima beans, drained
¼ cup + 2 Tbs. fresh mint leaves
4 Tbs. olive oil
3 Tbs. lemon juice
½ tsp. salt
Pinch of pepper
1 Tbs. water
2 Tbs. sun dried tomatoes, chopped
Crostini (small squares of bread brushed with olive oil and broiled quickly until toasted)

Directions:
Mix lima beans, ¼ cup mint leaves, olive oil, lemon juice, water, salt and pepper in blender. Puree until smooth. Spread on crostini. Garnish with sun dried tomatoes and mint leaves that you have cut into small strips. Serve. Enjoy!
