A week of…lunches

As I have mentioned, we moved house last weekend.  So I’ve had the week off work so that I can clean the flat before we hand back the keys, and we can sort out the new house.

As I’ve been at home for lunch with a full kitchen to hand, I have been able to enjoy some nice lunches – hot food, with time to prepare.  Yay!

So what have I been eating this week?

Monday – tofu & rice over lettuce with soya beans, flavoured with miso paste and topped with avocado for creaminess

Tuesday – squash and bean soup, made by sautéing some onions, adding in cooked uchicki kuri flesh and some light tahini paste. On the side I had a cottage cheese and beetroot sandwich on pumpernickel bread that I brought back from Germany, with another drizzle of tahini – about one heaped teaspoon in all.

Wednesday – Mmm…Wednesday was probably my favourite meal.  A cooked vegetarian breakfast for lunch.  I remembered Angela’s recipe for socca contained bicarbonate of soda which I forgot to put in, I tried it this time and it made it so much more light and airy.  I topped it with a poached egg and extra egg white. I had a small portion of reduced salt and sugar baked beans, grilled mushrooms and tomatoes – Ah-maze-ing!  For vegan just leave out the egg.

Thursday – I was going to do a Zen bowl on Thursday, but the idea developed more into a nicoise salad – with tinned tuna and a soft boiled egg – over lettuce,  quinoa and cucumber slices, topped with avocado.

Friday – Finally, to round of the week, I had a noochy mushroom omelette with sweet potato chips and sriracha sauce for dipping. With a side salad of lettuce, avocado, peas and cucumber.

Mmm…lots of lovely veggies.
