    Delicious. I particularly liked the base which is simple to make and very delicious. It is so nice in wraps. I left out the anchovies (#vegetarian). I have subsequently made the base without the toppings (yum) and the base with a purchased aioli and the dressed, cooked beans. Here is a hint - soak and cook the beans whenever you have time. They can be drained and frozen. Defrost when you want to make the dish.

    There is no doubt that this a delicious dish and a way to really elevate the humble white bean. Fair warning though with 3 bowls, 2 saucepans and the food processor used, there is a lot of pfaff and washing up. Would I make it again? Probably, but I’d try to find some shortcuts that didn’t involve tinned beans

    This was delicious and I will make this again. I soaked the beans overnight. Fabulous recipe! I thought it was missing a bit of roasted crunch. So I pan-roasted about half a cup of pine nuts and sprinkled these on top. Divine with home made crackers or toasted baguette!

    I used dried heirloom beans, so maybe it didn't turn out as it should. I thought the three different mixes were unnecessarily fussy. I used extra garlic, but didn't pick up much garlic flavor. My biggest concern is the amount of oil. If I'm going to eat beans to be healthy, I'd rather keep them healthy. I served with naan and roasted vegetarian "sausage" for dinner.

    Very delicious! I soaked the beans overnight and followed the recipe as stated. Now that I’m familiar with the process, next time will be easier. My garlic cooked fast, watch the timing on that step.

    This was sublime and I didn't even add the anchovies as vegos were eating. It seemed like a lot of work but I think next time it will be a lot quicker. I soaked beans overnight and then cooked them, rather than use canned beans but I think you can do that as well which would cut out a bit of time
