Recipe by GiddyUpGo

This recipe is from week one of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am cooking one meal from every country in the world, starting with Abkhazia. This is an Abkhazian side dish, which is basically a bean mash flavored with cilantro and walnuts.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the kidney beans and place in a pot with a small amount of water. Warm over low heat.
  2. Chop the walnuts, onion and garlic and cook in melted butter for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the beans from the stove and pour away most of the water. Mash the beans, then add the onion mixture and the chopped cilantro. Add salt to taste.
