It was too hot to boil potatoes and I always have canned beans on hand. These have great flavor and are easy to make. I used 1 Tbsp. of olive oil instead of the butter and I left out the onions of course. I wanted them to have some texture, so I just mashed them instead of whipping them, leaving some beans whole. Thanks for the recipe.

Yummy. I found it definitely needed the salt and pepper. I also found that I could not quite get the consistency of mashed potatoes. But I used cannelini beans and there were a lot of empty "shells" in the can. I also used only 1 tbsp. of butter and I thought it was plenty. Served this with baked fish, sparkling carrots (#103134) amd Cinnamon Oranges (#50124). Yummy dinner. Thanks!
