  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: 20
  • 2 15-ounce cans white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 slices multigrain bread
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cucumber, preferably hothouse (seedless), thinly sliced (peeled, if desired)
  • 1 4- to 5-ounce container sprouts (such as alfalfa, radish, broccoli, or a combination)
  • 2 avocados, pitted and thinly sliced
  • *Hummus can be used instead of white beans to make this even quicker
  1. 1. In a medium bowl, combine the beans, oil, salt, and pepper. Roughly mash the mixture with the back of a fork.
  2. 2. Place 8 of the bread slices on a work surface. Divide the mashed beans among the slices. Top with the onion, cucumber, sprouts, and avocado.
  3. 3. Stack the open-faced sandwiches on top of one another, avocado-side up, to make 4 double-decker sandwiches. Top with the remaining 4 slices of bread. Slice each sandwich in half, if desired, and serve.
