Better and healthier than mashed potatoes.
3 cups cooked navy beans drained well
1 clove garlic crushed
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp basil
Blend navy beans in food processor or blender.
If you don't have either, you can mash with a fork or potato masher until creamy.
If you use a blender, add beans gradually so they won't "stick" and cause the blender to stop.
Add salt, turmeric, basil (all optional).
Serve warm with butter.
Tip: If beans are a little too thick for your liking add a tablespoon of warm cream or milk and blend well.
