Seared Tuna with Shaved Vegetable Salad | "Shaving raw root veggies into a side dish salad is a fantastic idea. They’re ready in just a few minutes, their earthy flavors stay vibrant, and a simple vinaigrette tenderizes them slightly while retaining a little crunch, balancing the velvety tuna." #easy #easyrecipes #quickandeasy #easyrecipesideas #lunch #easylunch #easylunchrecipes #easylunchideas

Tuna Niçoise Whole-Grain Bowl | "We combined the classic Niçoise combo of haricots verts, potatoes, hard-cooked eggs, tuna, and olives with whole-grain rye berries, which have a nutty, faintly peppery-tangy flavor. If you can’t find them, use farro or wheat berries." #lunchrecipes #lunchinspo #lunchinspiration #lunchideas

Creamy Poblano Tacos | "This recipe may become a favorite with the crunch of corn and the spice of poblano. Roasted poblano chiles are one of the most distinctive scents and tastes of the Mexican kitchen—irresistible when combined with cream or cheese.

Smashed Chickpea Salad Toast | "A little reminiscent of both tuna salad and egg salad, this combo of coarsely mashed chickpeas, mayo, pickles, celery, and onion is all at once creamy, crunchy, and toothsome. We like serving it as an open-faced tartine or toast, but you can also sandwich it between two bread slices or serve it with whole-grain crackers." #backtoschool #backtoschoolrecipes #lunchrecipes #snackrecipes #schoolunch #lunchbox #lunchideas #lunchboxideas #lunchboxrecipes

Vegan Yellow Bell Pepper Gazpacho | "This soup screams "summer" with its bright, refreshing flavor and cool temperature. Holding out a little bit of the bell pepper and tomato for a fresh relish garnish adds textural variety—some crunch and chew to contrast the smooth soup. A high-powered blender will yield the silkiest results, but a regular blender works well, too. You can make the soup a day ahead and keep it chilled." #souprecipes #soupinspiration #soup #stew #chili #soupideas

Lemon-Garlic Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups | "These fresh lettuce wraps are a cinch to throw together thanks to a smart use of leftovers. Serve them with whatever variety of lettuce leaf you prefer—romaine, iceberg, or green leaf. If you’re packing this to take to work, wait until you’re ready to eat before filling the leaves, so the lettuce stays crisp." #dinner #chicken #chickendinner #chickenrecipes

Mini Mozzarella-and-Kale Pita Pizzas | "We split the pitas in half before toasting so that the “crust” for the pizzas can get extra crisp. They’ll also be slightly shallow rather than flat, a perfect vessel for the sauce and toppings. Baby kale is a fantastic all-purpose green: hearty yet tender, delicious fresh or sautéed. It’s a great introduction to greens other than lettuce or spinach. " #pizza #pizzarecipes #pizzainspiration #pizzaideas #recipes
