Yield: 6 servings

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans low-sodium white beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup low-sodium vegetable stock or broth
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • ½ tsp chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • ¼ tsp lemon zest
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/8 tsp fine ground sea salt

Directions

  1. Warm the oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add the onion and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook for 1 more minute.
  2. Pour in the vegetable stock and let simmer for 3 minutes, stirring the beans occasionally.
  3. Remove the beans from the heat and add the chives, rosemary, lemon zest, smoked paprika, and salt. Use a potato masher to mash and stir the beans until almost smooth, but still slightly chunky.
  4. Return to low heat and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, until the mash thickens and is heated through. Serve warm.
