During the week, our lunch routines are pretty well established. Andy has a salad sandwich, while I eat leftovers from dinner the night before. What we struggle with, though, is lunch on the weekends. I don't find salad sandwiches all that fulfilling, and after 5 days in a row Andy is ready for a change. We are usually pretty stumped about what to eat, often falling back on standards like noodles (for me) and leftovers (for Andy, usually eaten while standing over the bench top). But, sometimes we do get creative, and I want to document them, mainly as a reminder to myself about the options.
When we feel like wraps but don't have tortillas on hand, we use sheets of nori instead. This one is filled with a chickpea salad. It's harder to bite than tortilla, but full of iodine, so at least there's that.
Sometimes we creatively combine a series of leftovers - here we have leftover hummus, some puy lentil salad, and a few veggies in a tortilla.
20cent tofu makes a reasonable lunch, especially on a bun with veggies - here, with shaved sweet potato, grilled onions, cucumber and tomato.
Shaved sweet potato makes another appearance in this easy pants salad - with cucumber and sun dried tomato, and splashed with balsamic.
Andy came up with the idea for these "sushi crackers" - hummus flavoured with nori, wasabi and rice vinegar, with pickled ginger and biscuits.
Those are a few ideas, but I want MOAR. What are your favourite lunch ideas?
