Mashed beans is a perfect side dish for vegetarian food, because it is full of high quality proteins. Hence, it goes very well together with e.g. carrot patties (see recipe under Carrot and sunflower seed patties with potatoes, curry yoghurt and bean salad). This is a version with white beans and cream cheese which is very creamy and delicious!
460 g cooked white beans (drained weight)
200 g cream cheese
0.5 tsp herbal salt
1 pinch of ground black pepper
1 pinch of ground white pepper
100 g pistachios, coarsely chopped
3-4 sprigs of rosemary, stripped
Oil for frying
Blend beans, cream cheese, salt and pepper in a food processor. Heat oil in a pan and fry pistachios and rosemary a couple of minutes until the nuts are slightly browned. Serve the bean mash sprinkled with pistachio and rosemary.
