What you will need to make a single sandwich:

Whole grain slice of bread-mine was quite long, about 7″
Balsamic vinegar
4 Tablespoons (more or less depending on the size of your bread) bean paste-Take a can of any white bean, drain, smash with fork. Can use at room temp, cold or warmed. Save the rest for more sandwiches.
Fresh, crisp, cucumber-peeled, sliced thinly. I cut my cucumber the length of my bread.
1 slice of provolone cheese
Small clump of alfalfa sprouts
1/2 half of a firm avocado
salt and pepper to taste

Sprinkle a little balsamic vinegar on your bread. Next, spread the bean paste to your liking (light or heavy). Lay down the cheese, thinly sliced cucumber, and sprouts. Now scoop out small bits of avocado and place on top of sprouts. Dust with salt and pepper to taste.

This is a nice serving of protein, veggie and grain! If my calculations are near accurate, I counted just about 425 calories for this meal. My bread and cheese were each 100 calories, half an avo is 140. Beans-about 60 calories, cucumber and sprouts about 25 calories together.

There you have it! Enjoy!
