Spicy Bean Mash


It's seriously difficult to photograph a chunk of meat. To me anyway! I tried the top approach, the left side, right side, half dish..and it still looks..

like a chunk of meat.

How in the world did Donna Hay make a piece of meat looks so good? grrrrrrrrrrrr

I spied this Donna Hay Spicy Bean Mash with a simple pork cutlet. It looks so simple but so hearty!

It's the bean mash that won my heart in this meal though. Who would have thought? It's almost like a dip, but good enough to be served as a side.. Ahhh...


Spicy Bean Mash (Serves 4)
2 tins of Cannelloni Beans or white beans drained
1/2 lemon juiced
2-3 tsp of cumin
1/2 tsp of chili powder
1/2 tsp of paprika
1 clove of garlic minced

Microwave beans for 1 min. Add all ingredients and mash with fork. Serve as a side dish with grilled meat and beans.

Oh not too shabby for your meat photo! I'd still be happy to tuck in :) Bean mash looks yummy! I wonder if it'd work on butter beans?

That sounds wonderful! I've been trying to eat less carbs lately, and this sounds like an excellent substitute for mashed potatoes!
