Tuscan Beans with Sage and Garlic

2 cups dried cannellini beans
1 head garlic*
3 sprigs sage
6 cups water

1/3 cup olive oil
salt & pepper
Dash red pepper flakes

- Wrap the head of garlic in cheesecloth

- Add the beans, garlic, sage, and water to crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours

- Drain excess water, discard sage and remove and save garlic

- Dress the beans with the olive oil, a dash of salt and freshly ground pepper, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes

*optional- the garlic ends up being fully cooked and similar to the texture of a garlic head roasted in the oven. Remove the cheesecloth, cut open, and spread the cooked garlic on bread
