Move over avocado toast: Mashed white beans make a tasty toast topper that deserves just as much recognition as its creamy green counterpart! The hearty bean mash is mixed with scallions, garlic, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes to pack a flavorful punch that will leave you licking your fingers. A colorful pile of crisp lettuce leaves, tangy red onions, refreshing cucumbers, and juicy cherry tomatoes creates a symphony of scrumptious toppings, but feel free to mix and match any other veggies you have on hand. These satisfying white bean toasts are packed full of fiber and antioxidants to create a well-rounded, nutrient-dense meal that’s ideal for breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon snack.
