Recipe: Bacon, Tomato & Spinach Pasta Salad Lunchbox
Booths has come up with this fancy idea for a lunch box treat.
2 slices cooked bacon
2 cherry tomatoes, quartered
Handful baby spinach, washed
2 medjool dates
To make raspberry coconut energy balls
1 pack raspberries
200g dessicated coconut
100g rolled oats
4 medjool dates, chopped
For bacon, tomato and spinach pasta:
Just add chopped cooked bacon, chopped cherry tomatoes and washed baby spinach to cooked, cooled pasta.
Orange, grape, blueberry and date skewers. (Just add a mix of these to the lunchbox if not using skewers.)
Yoghurt with chopped pecans on top.
Handful of strawberries.
For Raspberry Coconut Energy Balls:
Mix the raspberries, honey, oats and dates in a bowl until they form a paste (you could use a food processor for this).
Roll into balls.
Coat with the coconut.
