unspecified-7This is a great office lunch – all the elements can be prepared earlier and piled into a tub as you’re racing out the door to work. Check your shop-bought kimchi and make sure it’s free of sugar. You could also substitute it for sauerkraut, home-made or store-bought. The split pea hummus can go a little stiff overnight – loosen with some olive oil and lemon juice.
