Artichoke, Spinach and White Bean Sandwich

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.
