I love refried beans but the nutritionist said they are off limits so I made my own. This recipe is simple and tasty.

Saute your shallot or onion in oil until soft. Add garlic and heat through. Add beans, pepper and parsley and using a potato masher, mash beans to the consistency of your liking. If you like them creamier, wait until the end and put in food processor. Add broth or water and cook about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese.
