Mashed White Bean and Avocado Sandwiches

On my never-ending quest to discover lunch items that are healthy and keep me full all afternoon, I discovered this gem of a sandwich. It is tasty, filling, inexpensive, and does the trick. It looks a lot like a tuna sandwich in the picture, but make no mistake, there is no fish involved in this sandwich.

 
I was inspired by a fellow blogger to try this out. Notice the homemade bread in the picture. I told you that it even looked like real sandwich bread!
Ingredients:
  • 140 g (dry) white beans
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • whole grain sandwich bread
  • avocado
  • cucumber
  • tomato
  • spinach
Directions:
  • Boil white beans until tender. Drain.
  • Add white beans, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to a food processor. Puree until smooth.
  • Spread white beans on one slice of sandwich bread.
  • Top with thinly sliced avocado, cucumber, tomato, spinach, and the other slice of bread.
Servings (of white bean mixture) ~ 8
