Black Soybeans Mashed with Cheddar

Doesn't taste like mashed potatoes, but is delicious and makes a tasty low carb substitute for the consistency and bulk of mashed potatoes.

makes 11.2 oz. by weight or about 1 1/4 cups
Serving size can be either 1/2 the recipe or my traditional 1/2 cup

You could use whatever kinds of beans and cheese you prefer, but the nutrition counts I listed were from the brands I used in this recipe.

Ingredients:

A 15 oz. can Eden Organic Black Soybeans, drained, reserving juice
about one tablespoon reserved juice
1/2 teaspoon Morton Lite Salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 slices (total 42g) Sargento sharp cheddar cheese


Directions:
1.Drain beans, reserving juice
2. Mash beans, about one tablespoon reserved juice, salt and onion powder until almost desired consistency.
3. Tear cheese in pieces and add to food processor. Process until combined as desired.
4. Turn into microwave safe dish and microwave until heated through.

If too thick, add a little more reserved juice. If too thin, you could add a little more cheese.

Store any leftover in fridge in covered container.
