Ingredients

  • 2 cans white beans (14oz/400g)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • EVOO (see notes)

Instructions

  • Drain the beans and rinse under a tap.
  • Add the olive oil to a small pan, pull the leaves from the thyme sprigs and add them to the oil.
  • Place over a low heat and gently warm the oil.
  • Once the thyme starts to smell aromatic, add in the drained beans, the zest of the lemon and the vegetable stock.
  • Stir over a medium/low heat until the beans are warmed through.
  • Use your wooden spoon (or a large fork) to squash the beans into the stock until you have a rustic mash.
  • Check your seasoning and serve drizzled with EVOO.

Notes

Here the EVOO makes so much difference to this dish, don't miss it out and use the best you can :D
