Smashed White Bean and Avocado Club

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings


  • 2 none 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 none slices multigrain bread
  • 1 none small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 none cucumber, preferably hothouse (seedless), thinly sliced (peeled, if desired)
  • 1 none 4- to 5-ounce container sprouts (such as alfalfa, radish, broccoli, or a combination)
  • 2 none avocados, pitted and thinly sliced


In a medium bowl, combine the beans, oil, salt, and pepper. Roughly mash the mixture with the back of a fork.

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. 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.

Tip: You can make this quick sandwich even more quickly by using store-bought hummus in place of the smashed white beans.
