Cucumber Cups with Cannellini Bean Mousse
In a food processor, blend the Carmelina Brands® Italian Cannellini Beans, garlic, parsley, Parmesan cheese and lemon juice. Add oil in a little stream until a smooth paste starts to forms. Use more if needed. Add salt and pepper to taste; check seasonings. For extra heat, add Tabasco sauce to taste. Set aside in refrigerator to chill. Cut cucumber into 2-inch thick rounds on the bias. With a melon-baller, scoop the middle out of the cucumber round, creating an indentation, but leaving the bottom intact. Using a small spoon or pastry bag, fill cucumber center with cannellini mouse. Garnish with sundried tomato and serve. Enjoy!
