White Bean Mash (Harcombe Friendly I think)

I came across this recipe in a Low GI Vegetarian cookbook.  It occured to me that it might be Harcombe Diet (Phase II) friendly.

 

Basically you take any white bean (I used butter beans), soak and cook soft in the usual way, then whizz up in a food processor, with a hand blender or masher, add enough water or milk to lighten the texture then season to taste.  I seasoned it with fried onion, leek, garlic, salt and pepper.  When I fed this to the family they were quite happy with it. 

 

It is not a million miles away in taste or texture from regular mashed potates and would at least offer a good protein substitute for a carb staple if you are eating a protein meal on the Harcombe Diet.  Generally speaking it is probably also a good thing to substitute for potatoes on a regular basis.

Sounds good, Rob ok.  I often mash beans with oil & herbs and a splash of lemon juice.  Bacon fat or little chopped bits of cooked bacon go really well with mashed butter beans.....but then you're committing the cardinal sin of mixing carbs with fats dohwhistle
