I just installed Gojee on my iPad and was doing a pre-lunch perusal and doing my best not to lick the screen. Those pictures are just amazing. I came across this sandwich originally posted at A Nutritionist Eats that sounded tasty so we gave it a shot. The original recipe says it’s two servings, but you can stretch it easily to four and reduce the points. I tried to use less oil than called for in the bean spread and it just didn’t work. I did adjust it slightly by adding lemon juice. This will be going into regular lunch rotation.
Weight Watchers Points Plus Value: 8

- salt & pepper
- Juice from half a lemon
- 1 – 14 oz can of artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped

White Bean Spread:
Combine beans, basil, garlic, 2 Tbsp olive oil and lemon juice in food processor and process to desired consistency.
Artichoke & Spinach:
Heat large pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp olive oil, artichokes and spinach, cooking for about 2 minutes, until spinach has just wilted.
Spread bread with white bean spread and top with artichoke and spinach mixture.
