overcooked beans

I'm making the pork shoulder with crispy skin, Matilda, maple, and garlic for New Years dinner. I intended to serve Tuscan white beans with sage, garlic, and olive oil with it, but overcooked the white beans. My instinct is to make a bean puree with the overcooked beans and serve them with salt and olive oil with the pork. Any other ideas? Favorite ways to make pureed beans?

I like your idea of going with a bean puree...why fight it? I love, love, love pureed beans with caramelized onions. They taste delicious together.

I've had the same thing happen before -- I pureed the beans with lots of olive oil, and they were totally delicious! I'd maybe blanch a couple cloves of garlic and add them to the puree too.
