This is a quick side dish which is healthy and very inexpensive. I love it with some pork tenderloin or some grilled chicken. It is a great alternative to rice and potatoes but equally as healthy. To serve 4 I use 2 cans but very few other ingredients and a quick stir fry in some olive oil and ready to go. This lightly mashed makes a great spread on baguettes as well as an appetizer. Please always feel free to add any additional ingredients such as olives, herbs, sundried tomatoes, etc. The combinations are endless … just use your imagnation. It is the main technique which starts new and exciting recipes.
