A lunch for hot weather

It’s rediculously hot and humid in south east Queensland at the moment. Too hot to cook, to bake, to do too much in the kitchen really. We had plans for the beach that fell through so our picnic food became dinner.

Dinner leftovers went into tomorrow’s lunchbox. Easy!

We have rice paper rolls filled with crispy tofu, rice noodles, salad and satay sauce. They are so easy to make. Just line up your prepared ingredients, soak the rice papers in hot water until soft. Then wrap up and add satay sauce to each roll. Do this on a cutting board covered in moist tea towel to avoid sticking.

The lunchbox allows space for left over vegetable sticks and satay dipping sauce.

To make the satay sauce add juice of 1 lime, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter to a small bowl. Stir to combine, add extra soy sauce to taste if required, then gradually loosen with water to desired consistency.



Extras are a fruit box, muesli slice in a patty case and a brown rice and chia slice.



Happy lunching 🙂
