Earlier in the week, The Boy cashed in on a bet he won (go Sens!) and had lunch at a favourite smoked meat/BBQ place. For dinner, I made a very veggie-ful “tabouleh” to balance out his lunch. (Which worked beautifully, by the way.)
Basically this lunch was my way of not letting the “appetizer” veggies I’d set out with hummus go to waste. And it worked!
This bento was a little lighter than my usual although the tabouleh tends to be more filling than people think, and I fit a surprising amount of hummus into that teensy glass jar. I especially liked the lettuce “scoops” made from the smaller leaves of romaine heart, and despite my worries that it would make them soggy, drizzling a little of the tabouleh’s dressing on the remaining torn lettuce actually worked really nicely.
Next step: remembering not to pack myself a lunch with Garlic! as a main seasoning on days when I have afternoon meetings with folks…
