I’ve been mixing up my lunches since I’ve been working from home. I usually bundle up some leftovers from whatever I made for dinner the night before, and take that into the office with me. However, we don’t have a microwave in the house which means I can’t easily re-heat things. Plus, we’re in lock-down and the way I’m keeping things interesting is through kitchen experimentation (and cutting my hair, but that’s not a discussion for today).
So today, I’m taking it back to 2016 and sharing a food recipe! I know. What a throwback.
Welcome the party, Crunchy Veg & Houmous Bagel (Vegan)!
I was never much of a Bagel Betty, but a few weeks ago when all you could get in your local big Tesco was a bag of Bombay mix and a celeriac, I spotted some sesame seed bagels in the bread aisle and thought ‘hey, I could get in on the bagel hype.’ And in the absence of 89% of my usual shopping items, I did.
And I’m glad about it, because now I have a delicious lunch option to enjoy whenever the mood takes me. It’s a great choice for your lunch for two reasons:
1). You don’t have to use this exact recipe – you can use whatever crunchy veg you have available to you. This means it’s a great one for using up the odds and ends which might otherwise have gone in the compost. Got a bit of cucumber left over? Wack it in. Got some tomatoes about to go squidy? Stick’em in. Need to use up some radish? Go right ahead.
2). Bread is tasty.
