Vegan white bean spread sandwich

This white bean spread is ready in no time. It is a great alternative to humus. It is creamy but low in calories. I love to mix it with a bit of pesto for a sandwich. But it is also great on its own.

You can of course use this spread for dipping sliced raw vegetables or as a topping for crackers.

One white bean spread sandwich delivers 20 g of protein!

You can store this spread – closed in an airtight container – in the refrigerator for about seven days.

Place all the ingredients for the white bean spread in a food processor and puree until smooth. If you prefer a coarse consistency, process very shortly. Taste. If necessary, add more salt/pepper.


To make the sandwich: smear the white bean spread on slices of bread. Add a spoonful of pesto. Top one slice with arugula, grated carrots, tomato and artichoke pieces and beans. Cover with the other slice of bread.
