Lunch today was rice with stir fried pak choi. Midweek, we also do the big pan of soup, usually with beans or lentils to fill it out a bit. This week's was veg with red lentils, tomato and lots of warming spices. Also as we are having lots of roast root veg or squash at the moment, I tend to do double and then we have it for lunch the next day with some feta.
I second/ third soup. My dc like a nice country veg soup- carrots, swede, parsnip, celery and potato chopped into small cubes and fried for a few mins to soften , covered in veg or chicken stock and left for twenty minutes. Blend add s and p and eat. Lovely.
I also have lots of egg based lunches. Omelette( maybe with peas and feta), scrambled with smoked salmon, a large veg frittata cut into triangles and put in the fridge for lunch for a few days.
Cous cous is very fast and easy though lots don't like it. With leftover chicken, some coriander and a squeeze of lemon I think it's lovely. Though my dc disagree and won't eat 'sand'
Yes, agree with pps that soup is a good one. We also make a chunky soupy curry type thing. Basically dice any combination of veg/ onions and sweat gently in a bit of oil and korma paste. Then add a bit if water and cook until veg is cooked and most of the water evaporated. Easy to heat up in small portions/transport.
