Ingredients

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
4- to 5-ounce container sprouts (such as alfalfa, radish, broccoli, or a combination)
2
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.
