  • 2 hearty sandwich buns
  • ¼ to 1/3 cup pesto
  • ½ cup hummus
  • 4 slices Havarti cheese
  • 2 cups arugula microgreens
  • 1 heirloom tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled into shavings
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • a few thin slices red onion


  • Note: if you’d like to make your buns “seedy,” brush them with olive oil and sprinkle them with everything season and pepitas. Pop them in a 325 degree F oven for 10 minutes and you’re good to go!
  • To assemble the sandwiches, spread the hummus on the bottom layers of the buns and top it with the pesto. Add on the Havarti slices, then layer on the tomato, cucumber, shaved carrot and avocado with sprinkles of salt and pepper as you go. You can add a little more pesto on top if you’d like too!
    If you'd like to make sure your veggies are super thin, you can use a mandolin to slice them. It totally depends on your preference of how thick you like the vegetables. I like them very thin!
  • Serve immediately with lots of potato chips!
