This packed lunch idea is so easy to make and is great for taking to work. If you’re out and don’t have food it’s simple to buy the ingredients from a supermarket and just start eating.

Easy packed lunch

By: George D Choy | Dec 18, 2018

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

Step 1

This is ridiculously easy. Wash the fruit and vegetables.

Step 2

You can leave the carrot unpeeled if you like. Chop the cucumber and carrot into sticks. 

Step 3

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).

Step 4

Dip away!
