  • 3 cups cooked cannellini beans, drained and rinsed or 2 15.5 oz BPA-free cans or Tetra Paks
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic power
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1.5 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • pinch black pepper


  • In a skillet, cook the onion with a splash of water for 7 minutes or until soft. You can keep adding water to stop the onion from burning or sticking to the pan.
  • Rinse the beans and transfer into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Use a potato masher or a fork to mash the beans until they become a paste.
  • Add spices and mix well. Then add the onion and mix again. 


These beans are great for our Easy Veggie Tacos.
