 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      lb            small white beans -- soaked overnight
    1      box           frozen chopped spinach -- thawed
    4      cloves        garlic -- minced
    1      c             soft bread crumbs
    1                    bay leaf
                         dried oregano
                         dried thyme
                         salt and white pepper -- to taste
 
 Rinse and drain beans. Cook with bay leaf until tender (1-2 hours). Partially 
 drain, leaving beans in about 1/2 c of their liquid; reserve drained liquid in 
 case more moisture is needed. Combine bread crumbs and garlic in a bowl (these 
 may be minced together in food processor if making bread crumbs). Heat spinach 
 and add salt, white pepper, oregano and thyme to taste; puree spinach mixture. 
 Combine beans, bread crumbs and as much spinach puree as needed to bind 
 ingredients together. Serve slightly warm.
