Falafel Work Lunch – No Excuses To Eat Crap At Work!

20 Jan 16  / Pete

I am on a mission to get people eating healthier at lunch time! With this super healthy plate, there is no cooking required, just a boiled kettle. Fancy a sorry looking pre-packed sandwich for lunch today? Seriously? This kicks it’s ass! Healthy. Yummy. Simple.


  • 1 pack of 3-minute¬†flavoured couscous – Ainsley Harriott does some yummy ones. 75p for a 2 portion pack.
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes.
  • 3-4 Falafel.
  • 2 Spring onions.
  • A handful of rocket.
  • A small strip of cress.
  • A few basil leaves.

No cooking! Holy shit balls…this is easy. Well, you need the kettle on. That is it! The rest is just a bit of chopping.


  1. Place your couscous in a bowl with some boiled water – amount indicated on the pack. Usually about 150ml or so.
  2. Cover the couscous. It should take about 3 mins – Check pack.
  3. Now just chop the rest of your ingredients! The toms, falafel if you wish to, rip the basil.
  4. Once the couscous is ready, give it a stir, get it on the plate and finally arrange everything on there in whatever fashion you want.

Get stuck in! A healthy, simple and well-priced work lunch. You have no excuses from now on!
