Another awesome recipe from readers like you! This one comes from DK, who says, "So I made these with the intention to pacify my craving for Mashed Potatoes. I think it's a great addition as a side or as a base to top with your favorite meatloaf, chicken, or whatever other protein you want! Tricks you just enough to make you think you're having a comfort food meal! You can use your choice of Great white Northern Beans or Cannellini Beans. (I make them for the week so I make big batches but you can make as little or lot as you want)."
Heat Olive oil in skillet and add minced garlic. Drain the Beans and then add to pan and season to taste with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat. Spoon Bean mixture (including olive oil) into your food processor and grind until smooth or you achieve the consistency you like. Once beantatoes are at your desired smoothness add butter and pulse until mixed. That's it! They are delicious and one of my favorite things to eat on this diet!
Tips: If Bean mixture gets too thick you can add water or chicken broth to processor to thin it out. ENJOY!
Editor's Note: These can be jazzed up by adding chopped chives or dill for even more flavor!
