Inspired by Kath Eats Real Food lately posts, I’m covering a week’s worth of lunches.
You’ll remember on Sunday we bought lots of veg after our holiday, so it was salads in my lunch box this week.
I wrote about Monday’s lunch on my WIAW post. A delicious chicken salad.
Tuesday was vegetarian day, so I had cold Tex Mex lentil and aubergine sauté with melted Babybel Light cheese served on a bed of organic spinach and romaine lettuce, topped with a hard boiled egg.
Wednesday I had cabbage wraps…filled with…
…tofu scramble, carrot, sweetcorn and avocado and sprinkled with Suma curry powder. It was a bit messy, but that’s all part of the fun.
On Thursday I made a tuna salad with romaine lettuce, cucumber, tomato and my aubergine dressing. I went to the farmer’s market at lunch and accidentally dropped a marrow on a bag of Shillingford Organics lettuce. I was asked if I was buying it out of guilt – I confessed that yes, I was but I was sure it would be lovely 🙂
As I had it I thought I would supplement my lunch.
The salad bag was amazing – and I had some to take home. I contacted them on Facebook to ask what was in the bag. They got back to me within the hour, it was:
Leaves: Lettuce, Endive, Beet leaves, Rocket, Streaky Mustard, Mizuna, New Zealand Spinach, Sorrel, Chervil, Tatsoi, Komatsuna.
Flowers: Coriander, French Marigold, Fennel, Cornflower, Brassica Flowers.
I could definitely taste the lemony sorrel, and something peppery. I knew when I ate a marigold flower.
On Friday i had a cheesy mushroom omelette made with one egg and some Two Chicks egg white. I softened some of the carrot and added it in before melting a Babybel Light. I served it cold with side salad of organic spinach leaves, cucumber and more shredded carrot.
So there you have it – my week of lunches.
Do you take a packed lunch, or do you eat at home? What was your favourite lunch this week?
