Low Carb Mashed Potatoes

For an additional protein boost in your diet, as well as a way to lower carbs, adding beans is a great option. You don’t even notice them in this recipe, even though they make up about 1/3 of the ingredients. These low amine, low carb mashed potatoes are a nice treat, with a little less of the usual guilt.

1 C white beans (about 3 C cooked beans)

6 medium red potatoes

1/4 C half & half

1 Tbsp salt

2 Tbsp grapeseed oil

1 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp garlic, minced

  • Cook beans in a full pot of water on medium high for about two hours, or until they are a smooth consistency the whole way through.
  • Cut potatoes and boil for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • When both are cooked and drained, heat butter and oil in a large pot.
  • Add garlic and cook till fragrant and just starting to brown.
  • Remove from heat and add potatoes, beans, half & half, and salt.
  • Using a potato masher, mash ingredients until the desired consistency.
AMINE BREAKDOWN:
Very Low Amine: beans, potatoes, half & half, salt, grapeseed oil, butter, garlic
