Soaked and boiled beans combined with chili sauce, topped with spinach leaves and loads of fat-free shredded cheese will make your taste buds crave for more.

Healthy mini sandwiches are topped with spinach leaves but you can substitute shredded lettuce or whole lettuce leaves for spinach. Brushing bruschetta slices with green chutney made the flavor extra-spicy. No bruschetta bread on hand try it over regular burger buns – toast them and follow rest of the recipe below. As per one’s taste you can even make a small patty out of this bean spread, pan toast it and top your burgers with it.
Once burgers are on top of the griddle, cover them with a cover so that the heat is trapped inside and this will help the cheese to become all gooey and scrumptious, it will start to ooze out from the sides…YUM!! Crunchy and toasty on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside – what a flawless combination. Perfect little appetizers are always a hit at any game party!!
