Keeping it bright and fresh today with this healthy little lunchbox! Sometimes you need to take things back to basics – so here’s our take on a classic roast pumpkin salad! Sure, Amy loves all those luxurious vegan panna cottas and watermelon jellies but let’s go back to where I think a lot of us began – crunchy, golden roast vegetables over salad (bonus points for the avocado!). Like, is this the vegan meal that converts more people than any other or what! it’s simple, hearty, classic, and just really, really good! The problem, of course, is the lengthy wait, though I suppose that’s just part of the ritual. Some might even claim the suspense makes it better – you’re bound to be hungry when they’re finally ready, which will naturally add greatly to your appreciation of the end result. Good things come to those who wait was clearly written with roast pumpkin salad in mind!
In any case they make an incredible tasty and no fuss addition to any lunchbox – paired up with a fresh salad and some lighter vegetables and you have a really vibrant, nourishing meal ready to go. Cleanse that palate with some kiwi, dragonfruit and mint, and if you’re feeling really indulgent, top it all off with some sesame snaps. Sometimes keeping it simple pays off 🙂
