And mix altogether in food processor to make this delicious pepper pesto! It is also low-fod map as it doesn’t have garlic or onion! So easy on the tummy and digestion! However if you wanted to add garlic, by all means feel free to add a clove.

Place the slices of Aubergine and tempeh apart, on high heat, on a pan with a drizzle of coconut oil for about 3 mins each side until golden brown.

Place some chard and spinach or any leafy salad on a plate and then place slice of aubergine at bottom followed by layer of pesto and tempeh and repeat until tower is made! I placed some fresh fennel garnish on top for added flavour! And eat! Enjoy!
