Source: Slightly adapted from Elly Says Opa!
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 tsp. fresh chopped thyme or 1/2 tsp. dried
- 3/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
Heat a skillet over medium heat and then add the oil until shimmering. Saute the garlic in the oil until fragrant and lightly browned, and then stir in the cannelini beans and thyme.
Add broth to the skillet and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
Stir in the lemon juice off the heat and mash the beans with a potato masher.
