It’s a really great lunch to keep your taste buds alive and is full of texture and taste. I’ve doubled up on the veggies here, so there’s enough veggies here for lunch tomorrow too, to save you prep time. This is a great recipe to use up whatever vegetables you have left in the fridge.

1 small courgette, grated
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
½ yellow/orange pepper, cut into strips

Put all the vegetables into a bowl or sealed lunchbox. Before serving, top your salad with hummus, sprinkle seeds on top and drizzle with oil. Simple as that!
