Even kids aren’t immune to the power of the internet. Ever since my daughter saw the Vegan Lunch Box blog, she’s wanted me to post a photo of her lunch. Today she took this photo of her favorite lunch-box meal, which we call Mexican Sushi (because she wishes she had a mother who would get up at 5:30 and fix her sushi!)
We warm up some fat-free refried beans, heat a fat-free tortilla, and then spread the beans all over one side of the tortilla. Then we put a strip of black olives, grape tomato halves, and lettuce down the middle and roll it up, jelly roll style. I cut it into four pieces and pack them in a cheapy plastic container (see photo). E. says that these stay nice and soft and she doesn’t need to heat them up (which she could do since she has access to a microwave).
