White Bean Pate

Having company? Don't know what to serve that is tasty and good for you, too? This White Bean Pate spread has a flavor that closely resembles quality French cheeses but with a lot less fat. Go ahead, have a small glass of wine with it; it's good for your heart, and also works as a flavor enhancer.

1 15-oz. can white beans (navy or cannelini)
