 Ingredients List

  • 1 pn Salt; as needed
  • 4 lb Asparagus
  • 4 c Arugula
  • 6 tb Olive oil; divided, see
  • -variation
  • 2 tb Sliced fresh garlic
  • 3 c Cooked cannellini beans
  • 2 tb Sherry vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 c Coarsely chopped Italian
  • -parsley
  • 1/2 c Very thinly sliced sweet
  • -onion
  • 2 ts Mustard seed
  • 12 sl Multi-grain bread


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Fill a
large bowl with ice water. Wash and trim asparagus; peel all but the
thinnest stalks. Drop asparagus into boiling water. Cook for 15 to 45
seconds, depending on thickness of stalks. Drain; plunge into ice water.
When cool, drain again. Wash arugula; spin dry. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a
heavy-bottomed pan. Add garlic; cook until it turns golden. Quickly add
beans, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Heat through; remove from
heat. Add parsley. Using a fork or potato masher, coarsely mash beans. If
needed, add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and keep warm. Toss blanched
asparagus with 2 tablespoons oil and salt and pepper to taste. Place on a
sheet pan; roast until lightly browned. Mustard seeds: Toast in a dry
skillet and crush. Toss arugula with onion, remaining 2 tablespoons oil,
mustard seeds and salt and pepper to taste. Toast bread in oven.

To assemble sandwiches, top 6 slices of bread with bean mixture, then
asparagus, then arugula-onion salad. Top with remaining slices of bread.

Note: For best results, use cooked dried beans rather than canned. Instead
of arugula, you can use other greens, like mache or even mesclun mix.
