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'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.

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.
