Sounds easy but there are a few pre-requisites that mean I'm tearing my hair out:
- No dairy, eggs, soya, tomato, chickpeas or sesame (due to DS's food allergies). - No peanuts or cashews (due to other pupils' allergies).
Also on the lookout for any homemade dips or snacky things like veg-packed 'sausage' rolls that others recommend; I try a lot of recipes from the internet but they are hit and miss and it's hard to spend time and money making something that turns out to be horrible or bland so recommendations from people who like the recipes would be welcome .
I'm not bringing DS up as a vegan but a lot of vegan recipes suit us due to the egg and dairy allergies, and I don't want to rely on meat/fish for lunch every day so wanted to get some inspiration!
With those allergies I personally would be happy planning to have some meat or fish in each lunch - sounds tricky to keep up the protein content. (but, I know I am quite meat orientated). I think you can get egg-free mayonaisse - tinned fish mashed with this should be a nice filler. Don't know whether it is soya free though
If salad type meals will work, can you do something with lentils or spinach in it?
[I have a pescetarian daughter. Luckily she is not one of the dairy allergic members of my family and has grown out of earlier egg allergy. You have my sympathies!]
Not sandwiches, but: Pesto scrolls - roll up puff pastry with Meridian dairyfree pesto (though can't remember if it is nut free) and Sainsbury's Free From cream cheese. These are also freezable. Not vegan, but my DS likes pea and bacon purée as a sandwich filling Cucumber and cream cheese (see above for non dairy/soya version of this) Nutella made with sunflower seeds
