Alright everyone! So today is Monday! (well it was when I made this haha) and this was how I prepped my lunchbox when I woke up!
Once I get into the kitchen, I boiled some water in a pot and putmy pre-portioned, pre cut broccoli into a pot. You would notice my soup pot containing my premade carrot soup also reheating merrily away behind the broccoli. While the broccoli is boiling, I lay out a piece of parchment paper and take the rye wrap I bought the day before. (I bought a packet which had torn wraps T.T)
The broccoli would have boiled by now (3min) so I drained all the water away and chopped the broccoli smaller because not that the wraps are torn they would be too big to fit but you can skip this step if you wraps aren’t torn >:( . Leave the fire on still while draining the water and with the broccoli inside, add in some pasta sauce (alce nero is my favourite, no junk pasta brand) add in heaping spoonfuls from your veggie box, stir together, switch off fire and TADA! a super rainbow coloured nutritious lunch for later. (< 10min) (you can add in chicken breast — it keeps well in the fridge– or any kind of meat into the wrap as well)
I lay my wraps on the table and top them with mozzarella and black pepper. While they are cooling off slightly, I scoop my soup into my thermal flask.
Then I pack everything into my lunchbag and I’m good to go! All I have to wash is that one pot I used to make the broccoli.
What’s for lunch today? Mixed veg mushroom and cheese on rye wrap with comforting thick hot carrot soup. How much would it have cost at a cafe? At least $10 + . How much did it cost me? THe carrots were :1.30 a pack so I would say this whole meal was less than $4. It is almost impossible to find this kind of fibre packed nutrition at this price in Singapore!Yummy, cheap, nutritious! I LIKE and I hope you do too! 🙂
Remember to bring a large bottle of plain water as well! 🙂 What do you think of a lunch like this? 🙂
