Cool Beans Lunch

When packed well, dinner leftovers make the best lunches. Tonight, we had homemade tortillas filled with mung beans or beef braised in enchilada sauce and topped with a simple kale and apple slaw.

As I cleared away dinner, I realized all I needed was three more things to make a good lunch for tomorrow: a dash of hummus (I recommend always having this on hand), one more kale leaf, and a sprig of basil. In just a couple of minutes, I had this lunch packed and dinner leftovers put away.

That's a wrap: mung beans, hummus, shredded kale, half an apple, and homemade tortillas.

Tip: If you don’t have a container with compartments, make sure saucy ingredients are strained a little (e.g., the beans) and use folded parchment paper for separating different items.
