This weekend I was planning to update my photos for my avocado hummus dip, and then I checked my pantry and realized there was no garbanzo beans in sight. But I did have some cannellini beans…they kinda look like chickpeas I thought. Maybe I should try substituting them. And so the recipe testing was on, and 3 batches of some green dips later, I finally got the perfect avocado white bean dip. And short moments after that, I had the perfect avocado white bean dip sandwich. The dip just belonged in a sandwich, slathered in excess because 1/6th of the recipe for the white bean dip alone is only like 100 calories. So I did what any hungry food blogger would do, I slathered it on a New York style toasted everything bagel.
That, alone, could have been a very happy ending. But then I topped it off with the colors of the rainbow: i.e. cucumbers, roasted red peppers, carrots and watercress (cuz i’m fancy like that) and it was seriously the best vegan sandwich ever!

I was going to hold off on sharing the recipe until the new year when we’re all trying to find healthy lunch ideas to take to work, but I just had to share this avocado white bean dip sandwich immediately because I like you guys that much, and I want you to make it that soon!
And if you’ve never turned cannellini beans into a dip, this is an awesome way to try. They are very low in calories and they truly make you feel full for hours…that’s always a plus if you’re trying to lose weight. But in that case, I would hold the bagel and opt for a lavash wrap instead. Yummy in every form!
