Vegetarian lunch ideas?  Do you give your kids Indian food for lunch?

Back in the day, if I had shown up to school with pulihaara (tamarind rice – my absolute favourite) or idli, I would have been even further ostracized from my classmates.  Times have changed and some of my kids’ classmates do in fact show up with upma and roti, but honestly, I don’t have the the time  in the morning (or live-in grandparents to help).  So what do you pack for kids with robust taste buds?  Here are some of my go-to staples:

1.  Tofu Edamame Nuggets from Trader Joes

2.  “Indian” Omelette (with diced onions, salt, grated ginger and a dash of chili powder)

3.  Pita pockets stuffed with Cilantro and Lime hummus and cheese

4.  Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche (again from Trader Joes)

5.  Spinach and cheese quesadillas (with Jalapeno and Cilantro tortillas from our local Fresh & Easy)

6.  Spanakopita triangles (a bit healthier than samosas)
