mashed white beans

this is more of a method than a recipe. any type of beans and seasonings could be used here to create endless dishes. black or pinto beans could be used, in combination with cheese, cilantro, chiles, and/ or cumin to create refried beans.

mashed white beans

-3 cups cooked white beans
-1 1/4 cups of water or stock
-salt and pepper to taste
-1 teaspoon dried oregano, basil, sage or rosemary
-2 cloves garlic, minced

heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. add garlic, saute 30 seconds. add remaining ingredients and simmer until warm, about 5 minutes. using a potato masher, mash the beans in the pan. continue to simmer until mixture thickens, stirring often.
