For the Slaw
- 2 Tbsp Hummus (30g)
- 2 Tbsp Dairy-free Forager sour cream/plain yogurt (30 g)
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard (10 g)
- 2 Tbsp Lemon juice or balsamic vinegar (30 g)
- 4 cups Kale, FINELY chopped (150 g)
- 2 cups Shredded purple cabbage (150 g)
- 4 Green onions, chopped small (20 g)
- Salt and pepper to taste
For the Sandwich
- Crusty baguette or bolillo roll (80 g)
- 1/4 Avocado (30 g)
- 3 1/2 oz Grilled pork tenderloin (see recipe; 100 g)
- Sliced tomato (40 g)
- 1/3 cup Kale slaw (70 g)
In a large bowl, whisk together the hummus, sour cream/yogurt, dijon, and lemon juice. I love it with lemon or with a lemon infused vinegar for added sweetness.
Add your finely chopped kale, cabbage, and green onions. Add a good pinch of salt and pepper and toss well.
Slice your roll or baguette, keeping the bottom as thin as possible.
Hollow out the top bun carefully to make plenty of room for your slaw (this will also reduce carbs a bit.)
Spray with a mist of olive oil and toast face-down in a pan, or broil until toasty in your oven.
Spread avocado on the bottom bun, then layer on your slightly warmed* sliced pork tenderloin, tomato, and kale slaw.
Enjoy fresh and toasty!
Pork: To reheat the leftover pork tenderloin, just heat in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds or so, or toss in a pan or air fryer for 30-60 seconds. Don’t recook! That’s when you get the reheated meat flavor! You just want to take the cold out of it. No need for it to be piping hot.
Bread: I used a gluten free baguette by BFree which I LOVE! Perfect for hollowing out and feels like a legit long baguette. I also love a good bolillo roll if gluten is no trouble for you. To match these macros, you’ll want 80 grams of bread. Almost all normal breads, even the gluten free, will have almost the same macros per gram. This 80 gram portion comes to 206 cal, 41c, 1.7f, 3.5 p. A bolillo roll or crusty baguette at the same weight is almost identical, plus about 3 grams of protein.
GF/DF: Just make sure to use a GF bread option and the dairy-free yogurt option in the slaw!
