Healthy Vegetarian Refried Beans

Healthy Vegetarian Refried Beans Since I live off of a mostly vegetarian diet, beans are super important to me to get that protein that my body craves! I absolutely love beans and I love refried beans, but sometimes after you eat refried beans, you feel a little fried yourself. So, I wanted to adapt some refried bean recipes I have seen, and meet my needs by creating a healthy protein packed dish. I eat this as a complete dinner with corn tortillas, even sometimes adding cheese, or, I grab some low-salt nacho chips and snack on it like a dip!

(Please note that I do not use onions in my cooking. If you would like to use onions feel free, just omit the garlic!)
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2 large garlic cloves
1/2 TBSP cumin powder
1 jalapeño chile, seeds scooped out and finely chopped
3 cans pinto beans, cooked, strained, and rinsed well
1 cup vegetable stock
1/2 tsp sea salt
