    1       c            Dried white beans -- soaked
                         Overnight in refrigerator
    1       lg           Onion -- whole; chopped
    8                    To 12 whole garlic cloves
                         -salt/pepper
      1/2   c            Sun-dried tomatoes (not
                         Packed in oil)
      1/2   c            Nonfat plain yogurt
   10       c            Assorted greens (escarole,
                         Arugula, dandelion, or
                         Radicchio) -- well rinsed and
                         -coarsely chopped
    3       tb           Red wine vinegar
      1/2   ts           Hot red pepper flakces, or
                         More to taste
    8       sl           Whole grain bread
 
   Drain the beans, rinse, and cover with 4 to 6 cups fresh water. Add
 the
   onion and all but 1 of the cloves, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and
 simmer
   for about 1 hour, until the beans are very soft. Drain the beans,
 onions,
   and garlic, and reserves the remaining bean liquid. Place the bean
 mixture
   in the container of a food processor and puree, adding enough cooking
   liquid to make a soft puree.  Season with slt and pepper. Set aside.
 Chop
   the sun-dried tomatoes and soak them for 15 to 30 minutes in just
 enough
   bean cooking liquid to soften and release their flavor. Fold the
 tomatoes
   into the beans.  Fold in the yogurt. In a large saute' pan over high
 heat,
   wilt the greens in the vinegar. Drain well and season with salt,
 pepper,
   hot pepper flakes, and additional vinegar, if desired. To assemble the
   crostini, grill or toast the whole grain bread. While warm, rub it
 with the
   remaining garlic clove, cut in half.  Spread the bread slices with
 white
   bean puree and top each with chopped greens. Serving size = 1 slice
