This mushroom soup is the perfect thing for autumn. It’s earthy and warming and super filling thanks to a secret ingredient that also gives it a creamy texture – without the cream.
Want to know the best part of this post? You can choose any one of these recipes and it can be the only thing you prep for lunch this week. Yep, just one. So clear an hour or two this weekend and get some lunch prep in and you’ll have delicious and healthy food sorted for the week ahead.
Your work lunch shouldn’t just be about a green salad and a can of tuna. Or a ham sandwich. Or two minute noodles. I mean, all these options have their benefits (maybe not the last one!) but they’re a bit boring and you deserve better. So much better.
This is a nourishing bowl of goodness. The sweet and sticky carrots, bright green peppery rocket, creamy labne, spicy za’atar mix and filling quinoa and lentils make for a delicious lunch or easy to throw together dinner. Everything can be prepped early and be waiting for you in the fridge to grab and take to work.
I love going out for brunch and one of my favourite things on any brunch menu is fritters. Especially corn ones! But so often they are deep fried and more batter than corn. These fritters are quick and easy, full of corn and gluten free. They also make a really easy to prep lunch idea.
If you don’t have a waffle maker then you are missing out on all sorts of deliciousness. These are filled with the nutrient dense sweet potato, gluten free and really yum so get involved already! Or be adventurous and try making them into pancakes.
If you put risotto in the too hard basket then this one will show you that risotto isn’t as difficult as you think it is. This risotto is amazing, it’s velvety and creamy, without the cream and full of crispy crunchy texture to boot. This recipe makes for a simple and impressive dinner, I promise it’s not just ‘wet rice’.
These are my 3 hacks (+3 delicious quick and easy recipes) for making sure lunch is always brilliant and you don’t get bored or stuck in a lunch rut. They are aimed at those who aren’t going to do a huge amount of lunch prep on the weekend and want something that can be thrown together in 15 minutes or less.
Winter means soup. Lots of root vegetables are in abundance and you pretty much want to fill your body with heat at this time of the year, and soup goes well with both those things. This soup uses sweet potato, pumpkin, fragrant spices and a little coconut to warm and nourish you from the inside out.
