Mashed Potatoes With White Beans
So simple and creamy, salty and yummy, mashed potatoes seem like such a heathy food. I mean they're made with a vegetable, right? Oh, but you know in your heart that beingmade with obscene amounts of butter, heavy cream, and milk, they're full of fat and calories — and you'd rather save room for the pie.
But now you can have your mashed potatoes and your pie, too. This guilt-free option tastes just as creamy and amazing, but it offers a protein and fiber punch. The secret? And no, this isn't a recipe for those fake mashed potatoes made with cauliflower — although those are delicious in their own way, they won't fool this mashed-potato-loving lady. This easy recipe is made with white beans, so each 140-calorie serving offers 4.4 grams of fiber and 6.2 grams of protein. Once you try it, you'll never make regular mashed potatoes again.
