    Okay, you blew my mind with the idea of just mashing up beans instead of peeling potatoes, which is like one of my least favorite kitchen duties ever! These sound so good! And I love beans in all forms, but especially with the lemon and thyme that you used! Yum!

      Thank you Amy, and I agree! Some nights the thought of peeling potatoes is enough to have me reaching for a takeaway menu (or maybe the box of pasta!)
      I was so happy when my boys enjoyed mashed beans!!!!

    This looks so comforting and like you say, rustic.
    After a busy day having a mash in under 10 minutes sounds perfect.
    I’m going to try this tomorrow with our chicken and gravy.

    What an amazing idea, Claire. I bet this tastes very similar to real mash, but it’s full of protein. Great for vegans and non vegans alike. I’ve tried cauliflower mash, now i need to try this too!

      Thank you Helen, it really is delicious and I love how quick and easy it is too. (Because sometimes even peeling potatoes is too much 😉 )
