Back to school or work is just around the corner. You don’t want to relive the “nightmare” of traditional ham or chicken-like sandwiches, also known as “pressed chicken” 🥪? Just because you’re in a hurry doesn’t mean you can’t eat well and have a different quick lunch!

Dive with us into the world of possibilities for easy-to-make lunches that everyone will love, from the youngest to the oldest 😊.

Tofu spreads

The great thing about tofu spread is that it’s quick and easy to prepare as a lunch. Moreover, you can add anything you like to season it to your taste. You can then use it in a wrap, a “classic” sandwich made with your favourite sliced bread, a bagel, or a dip to accompany crudités. Here are 3 versions that you can adapt to your taste.

Pasta salads with a variety of sauces

What may seem like the longest part of a pasta salad recipe is cooking the pasta. So, if you’re making one of our 30 must-try pasta recipes or one of the pasta recipes you can find in this other blog post (in French), cook more pasta in preparation for your weekday lunches. Macaroni, rotini, penne, fusilli, farfalle or other, let yourself be tempted 😊.
