Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday! If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below!
Happy New Year!
My resolution this year is to eat much healthier and to add more whole foods into my diet. One food that I really love and that is yummy and super healthy are these smashed beans!
They're delicious with the tastes of Parmesan, black pepper, and garlic, but they have lots of fiber from the beans. They're great as a side dish instead of pasta!
Here's the recipe:
GARLIC SMASHED BEANS
2 tbsp olive oil
1 15-oz can white beans (or make your own)
few drops water
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the beans and cook for 1-2 minutes. Mash beans with a fork. Add water, a few drops at a time, until the beans have a mush consistency, but not too watery. Add the garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper and mix well. Place on a plate and top with more Parmesan cheese to taste.
