Another super simple recipe… Drain the white beans and pour them into a sauce pan. Warm over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and begin to smash the beans together with a large wooden spoon. Add the juice from 1 lemon as well as a the zest of 1 lemon. Flavor with salt, pepper and garlic to taste. A high protein alternative to mashed potatoes!
