White beans mash seamlessly into a creamy protein-packed spread for a satisfying healthy sandwich that makes for an easy lunch or dinner. Mix it up by trying it with canned chickpeas or black beans. This vegetarian sandwich recipe is also a fiber superstar: avocado, beans, greens and whole-wheat bread team up to give it 15 grams of fiber, more than half of what most women should aim for in a day.

My husband loved this sandwich for lunch (I am allergic to avocado otherwise I would have eaten this too!). He said it was flavorful and we made it in about 10 minutes when he was home on his lunch break. Our 3 year old loved it as well so a hit all around! Read More
