1. Sticky orange and chilli-baked chicken with bean mash
This one-pot wonder has won over many hearts and if, like us, you’re feeling lazy, you can skip the last step of blending the beans into a mash and serve everything as is. This also means you’ve basically got lunch sorted. Shred the meat and pop into a chicken mayo sarmie and, if your kids will eat them, scoop some beans out into a small container for a salad of sorts. Bulk it up with some roasted veggies or extra blanched broccoli if you want.
2. Wholewheat fusilli with green olives and herbs
Pasta will forever be the ultimate “bestover” and this punchy olive version is no different. Served warm or cold, this will hold up wonderfully in a lunchbox. If you want, add in some feta and avo to make it more of a pasta salad.
3. Pea-and-broad bean quiche with sweet potato crust
The sweet potato crust here won’t go soggy, meaning this quiche will be as good for lunch the next day. Feel free to swap out the greens for any others of your choosing.
