    1 can (15 ounce) low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
    3/4 cup corn, thawed if frozen
    1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
    1/4 cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    3 large egg whites, lightly beaten
    1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chile in adobo
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
    8 cups baby spinach
    Pinch of nutmeg
    1/2 avocado, mashed

    1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
