Easy packed lunch

If I’m feeling really lazy, then I don’t even chop up the vegetables. I just get a whole cucumber…bite off the end and start dipping in houmous!
Daily DRI targets. This recipe provides 25g of fibre, which is 100% of your minimum requirements; 45% of Vitamin C and 489% of Vitamin A.
- Serves: 1
- Ready in 5 minutes or less
- 200g Tesco Reduced Fat Houmous
- 1 raw cucumber
- 1 medium carrot
- 6 cherry tomatoes
- 1 pear
Make sure you buy reduced or low fat houmous
Store bought houmous contains a surprisingly high amount of fat. They usually add in vegetable or other oils. It would be healthier to make your own, so you can control the ingredients—although I rarely make mine.
Step by Step Instructions
This is ridiculously easy. Wash the fruit and vegetables.
You can leave the carrot unpeeled if you like. Chop the cucumber and carrot into sticks.
Pack the vegetables into a lunch box. Leave the houmous unopened and chilled with a small ice pack (if there is the risk of it warming up).
