High Protein Garlic Mashed Potatoes

•10-12 large organic red potatoes
•3-3.5 cups cooked navy beans (two 15-oz cans)*
•1/4 cup soy-free Earth Balance buttery spread
•2 tbsp unsweet. almond milk
•4-5 large cloves of garlic
•1 tsp sea salt
•1/4 tsp ground paprika
•Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
•other herbs and seasoning, to taste


1. Wash potatoes with a potato scrubber, chop into large chunks, and toss into a large pot. No need to peal…leave the skin on.

2. Fill pot with water until potatoes are covered. Cook on medium-high heat for about 30-35 minutes until fork tender. Drain potatoes and place in a large bowl.

3. While potatoes are cooking Drop in garlic cloves into a food processor (running) and process until finely chopped. Add drained and rinsed beans, salt, paprika, and process until mostly smooth.

3. After cooling potatoes for a few minutes, take a potato masher and mash until desired consistency is achieved. Now add your milk and Earth Balance and keep mashing.

4. Add processed bean mixture to potato mixture and mash until smooth. Sprinkle with black pepper, other herbs, and additional sea salt.

You might be skeptical of the beans in the potatoes but they add protein without changing too much taste 🙂 Delicious!
