New series, I hope won’t end as my food diary. Everyday I cook lunch for both me and my husband. They have a canteen at work, but the quality and the price are not always affordable. 8€ is, in my opinion, not a good price for what you can eat there. Generally, I find it a good habit both for finance and healthy reasons.
So, what I want to share now are some of my ideas to make affordable, tasty and easy lunch, with this series ‘Quick ideas for Lunch‘.
All kind of Savoury Pies strike the point: you have carbs and you can full it just with vegetables. Another virtue: they are easy to bring in lunch box without making a mess: zero risk for leaks.
Time: 30 minutes ( follow the direction from your French-pastry package)
Ingredients: 2 portions
- 1 layer French-pastry ( you can find it in the refrigerated section of supermarket)
- 200 gr ricotta
- 2 zucchine
- 1 carrot
- 50 gr Parmesan cheese
- salt, pepper
1.Peel and wash carrots and zucchini. Put them in a mixer till you obtain a cream.
2. In a bowl mix all the ingredients: zucchini&carrots, Parmesan cheese, ricotta, pepper and good amount of salt.
3. If you, like me, cook for just 2 person, 1 layer French pastry is enough. If you cook for more portions, use two, one above and one below. Don’t forget to make small holes with a fork, otherwise the French-pastry will become super puffy. Fill the pastry with your cream.
Cook for 30 min for 180° , last ten minutes you can switch to convention-oven to obtain a nice crispy gold effect.
