Smashed White Bean and Avocado Sandwich

This is a great no-cook sandwich to add to your dinner rotation.  If you can’t find sprouts, no big deal – leave them off the sandwich.  Or try this sandwich using black beans instead of white beans.  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 slices multigrain bread
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 seedless cucumber, sliced thinly
  • 4 to 5 ounces sprouts
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced

What you’ll do:

  • In a medium bowl, combine the beans, oil, salt and pepper.
  • Roughly mash with the back of a fork.
  • Divide the bean mixture equally among 4 slices of bread.
  • Top with the onion, cucumber, sprouts and avocado slices.
  • Top with the remaining bread and cut in half, if desired.
