Mob's Healthy Lunch Recipes
Tuscan Tomato & Bread Soup
This is a classic Tuscan dish – it's rich, warming, and unctuous but also super fresh. The perfect way to use up any stale bread you've got hanging around.
Easy Tomato, Anchovy & Olive Galette
A lovely savoury galette that's perfect for sharing on a long weekend with your mates.
Juicy Prawn Noodles With Coriander Pesto
We love jazzing up instant ramen and this fresh and flavourful recipe – packed with herbs and juicy prawns – feels just the right amount of fancy.
Chilli Herb Omelette With Salmon & Crème Fraîche
We've turned the humble omelette into a swish, finessed brunch recipe and impress someone special. Easy does it.
Charred Leeks, Butter Beans & Pickled Chilli Sauce
Comforting leeks and beans with some pickled chilli, lemon, white wine and crispy capers for a little pizzazz. This is a vegan recipe you're going to love.
Spicy Feta Dip With Crispy Herbs
This might be the easiest recipe I’ve written, just lob 5 things in a blender. You can top with fresh herbs, but frying them is a nice, and very pretty, touch.
Honey Harissa Carrots With Whipped Feta
Delicious, spicy sweet carrots on a bed of creamy whipped feta, perfect with some warm flatbreads.
Grilled Cucumber Salad with Crispy Chickpeas and Lemon Dressing
Grilling cucumber makes it smoky and juicy. A zingy preserved lemon dressing, sweet roasted peppers and some salty feta rounds it all out. Jordon x
Confit Tomato Toast
My perfect brunch recipe. Peeling the tomatoes is totally optional. I think it’s worth it, they turn into little pearls of flavour. So luxurious. B x
Zingy Lemongrass Pan Con Tomate
Pan con tomate is a summer classic, and this version is no exception. Loaded up with lemongrass and vibrant green chillies, this is a dreamy no-cook dinner.
Gazpacho has to be up there with the all-time great summer recipes. Trust me on the melon, it really, really works! B x
Shallot Tarte Tatin
This tart is covered in delicious caramelised shallots and finished with a zingy basil dressing. Serve with a green salad for a light lunch.
Spicy Roasted Cauliflower with Hummus and Pickles
Cauliflower roasted until it turns dark and golden, on a bed of creamy hummus with some zingy pickles for balance. Perfect for sharing with bread.
Kimchi Peanut Butter Toast
This is my go-to breakfast for when I want something quick, filling and super tasty. Full of gut healthy kimchi, protein and fibre packed crunchy peanut butter.
Brothy Roast Tomatoes, Fennel & Giant Couscous
This recipe doesn't require a lot of prep and it's extremely comforting. A great one to use as a blueprint for whatever you have on hand.
Green Hummus Bowl
We've made a cheat-y hummus with loads of herbs and served it up topped with sticky halloumi. Dreamy, easy, dinner.
Masala Fried Eggs & Cheese Toast
Fry your eggs into Patak's Hot Squeezy Spice Paste, throw it on some buttered bread with a load of cheddar and enjoy our take on this iconic street food.
Tofu Spinach Saag Curry
This is a vegan riff on saag paneer, an Indian dish using cheese and leafy greens. We’ve used tofu here which absorbs all the flavour from the spices perfectly and finished it off with a tarka. This one also has coconut milk, which is not traditional, but a creamy coconutty addition.
Spiced Shakshuka With Herby Green Tahini
A delicious (and verdant) shakshuka recipe that's perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Make sure to use high-quality eggs.
Jordon's Interview Salad
This salad is so good it got me a job! Creamy labneh is mixed with sweet onions, tossed with crunchy pitta, and used to dress a vibrant summer salad. Jordon
Vegan Caesar Salad
Everyone's favourite salad has had a vegan transformation. We've replicated the funk of anchovies in this plant-based dressing, and it really works.
Chicken Soba Noodle Salad
Such a fresh little salad - a great lunchtime option!
Quinoa, Prawn & Avocado Super Salad
A fresher than fresh salad. Ideal for lunches and meal prep. The dream team flavour combo.
