35 min preparation time

Ingredients for the sandwich:
50 g arugula
2 large tomatoes
1/3 of a big cucumber
4 big slices of bread of choice

Ingredients Orange butter:
125 g butter at room temperature
1/2 orange
salt & pepper (best freshly ground!) 

Ingredients Beetroot hummus:
1 can of chickpeas
150 g beetroot
1 clove of garlic
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tahini (sesame mushroom)
Cumin, salt & pepper 

Preparation Orange butter: 

  1. Mix the butter with the zest of half an orange and the juice from it. 
  2. Spice up with salt & pepper, put it in the fridge and let it cool. (The longer, the more aromatic the butter becomes!) 

Preparation Beetroot hummus:

  1. Drain the chickpeas in a sieve and collect the liquid (the so-called aquafaba). 
  2. Mix the chickpeas with the remaining ingredients using a hand blender until creamy. Depending on the consistency, add a little more of the aquafaba. Finally, season with salt & pepper and cumin to taste. 

Preparation for the sandwich: 

  1. Wash the arugula, tomatoes and the cucumber. Thinly slice tomatoes and cucumber.
  2. Roast the bread, cut it into slices and brush on one side the orange butter and on the other side the hummus. Finally, top with the rocket, cucumber and tomatoes and fold up. Now just enjoy!
