Just wondering....it says "white bean puree" but calls for kidney beans?

About

This super-easy puree is a mellow spread for crackers, crunchy bread and pita. It's also a perfect base for a second layer of fennel, endive spears, red bell pepper strips or cucumber rounds. The spread can be made up to 2 days ahead.
