White Bean and Avocado Sandwich

White Bean & Avocado Sandwich

White Bean & Avocado Sandwich

A few weeks ago the unthinkable happened….. I got bored of hummus! <gasp!>  I couldn’t quite believe it myself, but even with a variety of additions (salad, harissa, avocado) I had eaten it so much I was bored of it!

So, an alternative was needed, and after a quick google I found this Smashed White Bean & avocado sandwich which saved the day 🙂  It’s one of those things that is so simple to make you feel a bit silly writing it down… but these days I need to write things down so I remember them!

To be perfectly honest, I’m not a huge fan of sandwiches – I tend to see them as a last resort, but they are just SO easy to make & convienient to eat at work, I usually have them a couple of times a week.  My current bread of choice is Warburtons Brown Thins – just enough bread to hold the filling in, but not so much that they become too heavy & stodgy (I don’t want to fall asleep at my desk!)
