Whole 30 "Refried Beans"?

Today is day 30 of my Whole 30. I don't plan to go back to eating legumes. But my family loves mexican food. And so I'm looking for a "substitute" for "refried beans"...

I was thinking something along the lines of roasted eggplant puréed with hazelnuts, some spices like cayenne, paprika, and cumin... Or possibly some winter squash in there.

Anyone seen any good recipes out there?

eggplant could possibly work. I'm blank trying to think of other veggies that would give that creamy like texture. Your spices are a good start. When I used to make my homemade refried beans, I include that three plus some chili powder, along with onions and garlic, saute and mash them in with the eggplant.

I'd love to hear how this goes.

Ok. I did it. I made my Paleo Refried Beans.

To make these "Beans" I roasted eggplant, and butternut squash. I mashed about 1/4 cup of each and added 1 Tbsp of almond butter. I added salt, pepper, cayenne, and paprika to taste. They really tasted a lot like refried pinto beans! I was very pleased with the result!
