This week I found myself wanting something other than our usual side dishes to go along with some boneless pork chops I picked up on sale.
I ended up finding the perfect thing in these garlic mashed cannellini beans. They were wonderful! Very flavorful and a delightful alternative to mashed potatoes!
2t. Olive oil
3 Garlic cloves, pressed
1 small Yellow onion, diced
1 can Cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2t. Fresh chopped parsley
3/4C. Chicken or vegetable broth
2t. Lemon juice
Heat a skillet over medium heat and then add the oil until shimmering. Saute the onions in the oil until soft. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Next, stir in the cannellini beans and parsley.
Add broth to the skillet and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
Stir in the lemon juice off the heat and mash the beans with a potato masher (I used my stick blender – worked perfectly).
