While recipes are added to this site, many of the recipes are hosted on Tinned Tomatoes food blog. These will open in a new window.

There are just too many good recipes that need to be shared.

Scroll down for easy lunchbox recipes including sandwiches, soup, salad. pasta and pastry.


SANDWICHES

For a really good sandwich you need to start with good bread, a soft wholemeal, a seeded batch, a fluffy white bloomers or a rustic farmhouse loaf.


FILLED ROLLS


Rolls as we call them in Scotland can also be known as bread rolls, buns, baps, cob and barms.

They are basically like burger buns, but the variety is vast. I'll also include subs, filled baguettes & bagels in this section.

TOAST & TOASTIES


Vegan lunch wraps

WRAPS
Wraps are a fun option for lunch and a nice option if you want a change from sandwiches. 

Flour tortilla wraps usually come in white, wheat and white and wholemeal, but you can also buy colourful vegetable wraps flavoured and coloured with veg like beetroot and spinach.

SALADS

Salads are a great light option for lunch. 

My main tip is to wait to add wet ingredients in oil like sundried tomatoes, artichokes or a dressing until you are serving so your salad stays crisp.


vegan side salads

SIDE SALAD

These side salads can be part of a bento style lunch or served on salads or in sandwiches.

vegan pasta salad

PASTA SALAD

Pasta salad isn't just for BBQs or picnics, it makes a really filling lunch too.

My one tip is to cook the pasta until al dente. You want it to be properly cooked, but firm.

Once it's cooked, rinse it under cold water until completely cold. This will wash the starch off and leave you with firm glossy pasta which makes the best pasta salad.


SALAD DRESSING & TOPPINGS

A dressing drizzled or a crunchy topping sprinkled over a salad can really make the most plain salad something special.

NOODLES

Noodles can be cold in a salad or warm for lunch. Which ever way you choose, they are a fun lunch.

vegan soup

SOUP

There's nothing better than a bowl or cup of hot soup for lunch, especially when it's chilly outside.

It's also just the thing if you're trying to be frugal with your finances or trying watching your weight.

Broccoli Soup

Cauliflower Soup

Kale Soup

Minestrone Soup

Mushroom Soup

Parsnip Soup

vegan pastry

PASTRY

Shop bought pastry is such good quality and the ready rolled varieties make it so easy to use.

Most pastry is suitable for vegans today, just check the back of the packet and avoid any that say 'all butter'.

Vegan Savoury Bites

SAVOURY BITES

Savoury bites are great with some crunchy veg and hummus or with a salad for lunch. They also make a rather marvellous sandwich filling.
