Smashed White Bean and Avocado Sandwich/Dip (Vegan)

Last Updated on

This Smashed White Bean and Avocado Sandwich/Dip is incredibly easy to make, with very few ingredients! It’s similar to the egg salad sandwich, but much healthier and with so much flavor!

One of my favorite things in the world is a good sandwich. I love the fact that I can feel completely fulfilled with a meat-free sandwich, but I have to admit this wasn’t always the case. It was a long time ago, but I used to love meat just as much as the next chick, and it was a difficult transition when I had my first vegetarian sandwich. “What do you mean, no meat? How is this a sandwich!!?” It felt incomplete. Now I laugh at that thought because I have found so many ways to enjoy a vegetarian/vegan sandwich and feel completely fulfilled. When I tell people I am vegetarian, I’ve heard “Whaaat do you eat?”, like there are so little options out there. As a food blogger I can tell you- the options are limitless. It comes down to being creative and finding ways to mix and match a million different foods.

To begin making this sandwich, first, in a large bowl, combine the white beans, chickpeas and avocados. I like to mash them up with a potato masher so they are combined but still a little chunky.

Then add in the rest of the ingredients (red onion, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, pepper, mustard, salt and olive oil) and stir it up with a large spoon. Bam! Just like that you have your sandwich filling. Spread it on your favorite bread and top with tomatoes.

I call this recipe a “sandwich”, but it’s really the makings of a great filling- for a sandwich, wrap, or even as a healthy dip (with some yummy veggie chips)…

To store, make sure you pack this up in a container with as little air as possible, so the avocado doesn’t brown. Tip: you can put the mixture into a container and then cover it with parchment or wax paper. Press down on the wax paper so it’s completely covering the mix, and no air is exposing it. Then wrap a rubber band or hair tie around the container to seal. This will help it stay fresh a lot longer!

This is best served immediately, but will keep another day or two in the fridge.

  • Christin, I will be making this recipe tomorrow night For my wine tasting Party Being that is so spreadable for a dip With mild flavors, not to interrupt the bold red wines we will be serving.
    Thank you…

  • I make a version of this and use black sulfur salt. It has the taste of hard boiled eggs (my daughter and neighbor kids call it fart salt/sorry :). Also a dash of nutritional yeast makes it pop too. It so filling and nutritious we aren’t hungry for hours!
    PS. You are ADORABLE!

    • Aww thanks so much! =) Black sulfur salt, sounds interesting! I’ll have to try that. And the nutritional yeast is a great idea too!

  • Are the nutrition facts based on how one person would eat the avacado dip or on the recipe that says it serves 2.5 cups?

    • Hi Bei, the serving is for 1 serving out of 6 total servings. I guess I should have been more specific- thank you! =)
