Who said eating your veggies needed to be boring! These pretty little veggie fritters are completely customisable. Using up whatever veggies are lurking in the fridge or is to hand up on the allotment. With only 3 ingredients (yes I’m counting veggies as 1!) and taking less than 10 minutes to whip up on a portable gas stove, they are a great for a quick lunch when starvation strikes up on the allotment! We keep a stock of glutenfree flour in a sealed plastic container in the shed along with a non-stick frying pan and add whatever veggies are in season!
Is it just me or do work lunches get really boring? During the holidays I have loads of time but when I am at work, I just seem to get stuck in a rut of the packing the same old things OR worse just don’t bother taking any at all. And as for breakfast… its usually a coffee in my trusty travel mug, hastily drunk cold the other end of my m27 communte!

These little Mediterranean Swirly Bread rolls, filled with garlic, tomatoes and olives, have quickly become a staple of Elodie’s Preschool lunchboxes. She especially likes them with cherry tomato pieces in them as apparently they go pop! These rolls have no salt in them, are dairyfree, eggfree & soyfree, and keep really well in a sealed container. The added bonus of making them yourself is that you can make them as big or as small as you like! These are small enough to fit inside the cups of a normal muffin tin and can be sprinkled with dairyfree cheese before baking for an extra crunchy top!
These Easy Peasy Dairyfree Pop-in Sausage Rolls with Onion Chutney are called Pop-in Sausage Rolls for two reasons, mainly because if you pop in to ours round about Christmas time you are almost guaranteed to be fed a version of these! Usually either with onion chutney, cranberry sauce or apple sauce in depending on what we have in the fridge! These are free from dairy, egg, soya, nuts & sesame and the filling is gluten free so just swap the puff pastry for a gluten free option!
