Lemon Mashed Great Northern Beans

4 Mar

This side dish was amazingly flavorful and yummy, although not very beautiful.  It’s healthy, vegetarian, and would also make a great filling for a vegetarian burrito.  Zak and I both enjoyed it a lot and I know I’m going to be making it as a side again in the near future.  It was quick, easy, and filling.  The cilantro and lemon lent a touch of brightness to the earthy, creamy flavors of the beans.

Lemon Mashed Great Northern Beans

3 cups canned great northern beans

2 tbs. Brummel & Brown

1 small onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp. sumac

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Heat Brummel & Brown over medium heat in a small stock pot until melted.  Add onion and sauté until translucent, 6-8 minutes.  Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.  Add beans, sumac, lemon juice, kosher salt, and freshly cracked black pepper and stir to combine.

Simmer 10-15 minutes until most of liquid is absorbed, smashing with flat of spatula to create a lumpy mash.  Add cilantro and stir to combine.  Garnish with some crushed red pepper flakes.
