Today we welcome to WOT Chef Daniel Green who is sharing with us his Tuscan-inspired recipe for White Bean Puree with Shrimp. What makes this dish so great? It’s easy, healthy and takes almost no time to make!

Chef Green believes that food should take you on a journey, and this dish will transport you right over to Italy. Here is the best part: It’s very easy to make and you likely already have all of the simple ingredients sitting in your pantry! Have a look at the video above to see Chef Green whip up this dish.


The ingredients are very simple, but they are quality, and together they create a simple yet authentic and elegant dish that is fit for a restaurant!

Pro Tips: Oil the food, not the pan! This helps you use less oil. When the shrimp change color, they are cooked! They don’t need much frying at all. Be sure not to add your paprika to your shrimp until the very end or you will run the risk of burning your shrimp!
