Poor old lunch. It gets us through the week, whether eaten hunched over our desks or grabbed on the go, only to be cast aside every weekend in favour of brunch, a younger, trendier model. Rekindle your relationship with lunch with this diverse collection of lunch ideas, from chunky sandwiches and colourful salads to soups, sushi and speedy pasta recipes.
Helen Graves' Egg mayo sandwich recipe will help you master the simple classic, or combine two lunch favourites in one with Nathan Outlaw's Ham and cheese toasties, served with a fiery watercress soup. Francesco Mazzei's easy pasta recipe is as simple as stirring juicy prawns, chilli and parsley through linguine, while Louise Robinson's stunning bento boxes with Steak teriyaki and Prawn nigiri are a little more effort but more than worth the time put in.
