Apple Onion Salad Recipe HERE.

In a medium bowl mash beans with a fork or potato masher. Stir in half of the bread crumbs, the carrot, onion, egg, half of the parsley, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Combine remaining bread crumbs and parsley in a shallow dish.

Shape bean mixture into 4 patties (mixture will be soft). Dip both sides of patties into bread crumb mixture to coat.

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add patties. Cook for 4 minutes per side or until well browned.

Arrange spinach and patties on bread slices. Top with Easy Tomato Sauce:

  • 14 – 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper

Place tomatoes in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process to desired consistency. Pour into a bowl and stir in snipped fresh basil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Makes 4 servings.
