You may have noticed Lindsay’s Lunchbox has kinda fizzled out over the past few weeks….or maybe you haven’t…..
Either way, it’s been a combination of lack of creativity, lack of time, lack of time, oh and lack of time….but today I had a stroke of genius while packing my lunch for tomorrow and it was just too good not to share.
If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen that I finally had time to do some Sunday prep work this weekend. I roasted chickpeas to snack on, hard boiled some eggs and made sweet potato hummus (very similar to my Curried Sweet Potato Dip, except I experimented with chickpeas because I was out of plain Greek yogurt).
Speaking of being out of Greek yogurt, that’s exactly what brought upon this brilliant idea. I was in the mood for some tuna salad for lunch tomorrow and was just about to get to work making some, when I remembered my yogurt conundrum. I’ve kinda given up using mayo…but I reeeeealllly wanted that tuna salad.
*Cue brilliant moment: MIX THE HUMMUS WITH TUNA instead of greek yogurt or mayo…..BRILLIANT!*
If you are sufficiently unimpressed with this idea, it’s probably because you’re already doing it yourself. And in that case I say to you, “HELLO?! Why didn’t you fill me in?!”
I took this idea a step further and spread some tuna/hummus salad on a whole wheat tortilla, added some bell peppers and a hard boiled egg and voila! Lunchtime rollups
Here’s another lovely lunch I made myself last week:
Are we noticing a trend here???
Also, I can’t get over how pretty that avocado was. So perfect.
And finally, I even have a couple reader submissions to share with you.
These both come from Meg, a friend from college and a huge Bean supporter!
She says: ” It’s my last week of school so i figured i better send you some now or never. The first one is my classic go-to lunch sandwich. As you can see, I use Annie’s Goddess dressing and cholula sauce, then a handful of spinach, chopped up bell peppers, and banana peppers on top. a lot of times i use cheese in there too. It’s an awesome veggie sandwich and I always get comments on it at school. When the tomatoes get good I put those in too.”
And then, her cinco de mayo treat! “Whole wheat tortilla with hummus, black beans, spinach, bell peppers, pico de gallo, and of course cholula sauce.”
Thanks for sharing!!! I’m loving your Cinco de Mayo treat
So tell me, are you familiar with the tuna salad with hummus idea, or are you in awe of my brilliance 😉 ?
