A healthy Christmas side dish recipe for Garlic and White Bean Mash
1 small head of garlic
1 tbsp. olive oil
200 ml low fat milk
2 sprigs thyme
2 tins butterbeans
Coat the garlic head with the olive oil and roast at 180°C for 40 minutes to 1 hour until the garlic is soft.
Place the milk in a pot and warm to scalding point.
Cut the head in half and squeeze the sweet garlic into the milk.
Add the beans (rinsed and drained) and the thyme, and cook the mixture on a low heat for about 10 minutes.
Remove the thyme sprigs and place the beans in a blender or blend with a hand blender to a smooth puree.
Pass the puree through a sieve to ensure that there are no lumps.
If the consistency is too thick, add a bit more milk.
Season and reheat to serve.
