Smashed White Bean and Avocado Club

Ingredients:

  • 215-ounce cans white beans, rinsed and drained
  • tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 slices multigrain bread
  • small red onion, thinly sliced
  • cucumber, preferably hothouse (seedless), thinly sliced (peeled, if desired)
  • 14- to 5-ounce container sprouts (such as alfalfa, radish, broccoli, or a combination)
  • avocados, pitted and thinly sliced

 Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the beans, oil, salt, and pepper. Roughly mash the mixture with the back of a fork.
  2. Place 8 of the bread slices on a work surface. Divide the mashed beans among them. Top with the onion, cucumber, sprouts, and avocado.
  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.
  4. Slice each sandwich in half, if desired, and serve.
