This is how you make it

  1. Chop the red cabbage ultrafine. You only need a little, a few tufts is enough. Finely chop the spring onion.
  2. Tear the oyster mushrooms into smaller strips.
  3. Heat the sesame oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Fry the oyster mushrooms until they turn golden brown. Halfway through, add the red cabbage, spring onion and garlic powder, with some salt and pepper if necessary.
  4. Turn down the heat when the oyster mushrooms are cooked. Add the umami sauce. Fry for another minute to allow the flavours to infuse.
  5. Spread the hummus on the protein bread.
  6. Top with the oyster mushrooms and red cabbage.
  7. Sprinkle with gomasio and some crispy onions or spring onion, if desired.
