Packing a lunch for Little Nettle to eat in the forest is a careful balancing act that my sweetheart has been managing. Can she open whatever container her lunch is in? Will it stay hot enough? Will it be easy to eat sitting on a log?
Enter these stuffed mini tofu omelets, based on Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s recipe in Isa Does It, which is a variation on her classic Tofu Omelet. Filled with roasted potatoes and broccoli - and nut free - they make an easy addition to the lunchtime repertoire. They can be messily handheld, neatly tucked into a sandwich or eaten with a fork out of a thermos.
They’re super fast to make if you already have roasted vegetables lying around - I think roasted peppers would be a tasty addition. As a bonus, tiny sous chefs can help out with every step - except maybe taking in and out of the oven.
