Anyone Can Cook Vegetarian Food: A Lunchbox Challenge!

Now that most of us are heading back to work, we are back in the land of packed lunches.  Or buying lunch, which I try not to do, but which is still occasionally irresistible.


The February 2013 theme is The vegetarian Lunchbox

(because sandwiches get very boring, very fast)


This month I’m looking for vegan and vegetarian recipes suitable for packing and taking to work or school.  I would, on the whole, prefer savoury recipes because I for one have absolutely no trouble thinking of nice little cakes and biscuits to bake and take to work, and every single one of them is vegetarian.  Possibilities might include…

  • Frittatas
  • Savoury muffins or slices
  • Soups
  • Wraps
  • Honestly, anything that looks like lunch to you.  If I had lots of ideas, I wouldn’t be running this challenge!  (Well, I might be, because I’m kindly like that, but I probably wouldn’t be running it as the second challenge ever…)
  • Sandwiches.  If you must.  But interesting sandwiches, please!
  • Salads again!  Because salads can be lunch too!

Be creative and delicious and wonderful, as you always are.

Rules of play can be found at the main challenge page.

ETA: And the most important rule (after ‘make it tasty and awesome’)  is, please link back to this post!  Reciprocity is everyone’s friend, and I’ll hold off on approving linkies until I see a link back here. 

I noticed a few of you had trouble with the linky list last time (I think perhaps some people didn’t see it?).  Please remember to click on the blue link that says ‘Click here to enter’ – this allows you to add your page to the blog hop, and to get the code so that you can add the blog hop to your own site.  If you don’t do this, but follow the rest of the rules, I’ll still get a notification that you’ve joined in, and can add your page manually, but you can only add the blog hop to your own page by entering the code yourself.

I can’t wait to see what you’re having for lunch!

      Ah, the joys of pre-posting with this sort of thing! Something always goes wrong! I’ve fixed the link now, thank you so much for letting me know.

    I think I might have just entered my link twice – sorry about that!

      Better twice than not at all!

      (it only showed up once, so I think you’re fine)

    Hi Cate, I just linked up a recipe after discovering your monthly challenges through Johanna at Green Gourmet Giraffe. My link isn’t showing above but I am hoping that’s because this is moderated…if not, I may have done something wrong 😛

      Hi Kari,

      Yes, it is moderated, but I’ve just approved it and it should be showing up now. Thank you so much for joining us!

      You’re very welcome! I usually get to these things within the day, but it just depends on whether I have a moment to look at my email at work!
