A lunchbox for little people

A lunchbox of pre made goodies. Super easy biscuits. Very easy to prepare and high in protein and fibre. We added vanilla bean paste and chia seeds.

The salad box has a hidden pattie under the cucumber. It’s such a simple recipe I got from a vegan site on FB.

Baked Beans Recipe
Ingredients
2 cups of dried navy beans
3 425 gm cans of diced tomatoes
3 tbsp tomato ketchup
3 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp each of dried oregano and parsley
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp Massell chicken stock powder
pepper

Optional extras
diced onion and garlic
frozen peas
frozen, chopped spinach

Method
1. prepare beans. Soak in cold water for at least 8 hours. Boil beans in large soup pot for at least one hour, until cooked and soft in the middle but still hold shape. Top up with boiling water when required.
2. Drain beans and return to large pot.Add remaining ingredients and cook for a further 30 minutes or so.
3. This makes a large amount, so I keep some in the fridge and freeze a batch.

Serving suggestions
Excellent layered with dairy free sour cream (Tofutti brand I use), avocado pieces, chopped tomato and salsa.
Wraps as shown above
On toast
Served in little lunch containers.

Freezes beautifully for batch cooking.

Enjoy 🙂
