Assembling the sandwich:

  1. Reheat the coconut flour bread in the oven for 2 minutes (I used 180Β°C) and cut it into half horizontally, but not cutting it all the way through, as I don’t want it to be separated into two pieces
  2. Generously smear a layer of beetroot hummus on the upper and lower half of the bread
  3. Place a handful of kale on top of the hummus
  4. Followed by the baked tempeh and avocado
