Tofu, Corn, and Hemp Seed Veggie Boats

Developed for a back-to-school article, these veggie boats were created with kids in mind. Kids, we know, are budding architects, and building their own lunch keeps them interested, so keeping these unassembled let’s them have some fun with their lunch.

Tofu, Corn, and Hemp Seed Stuffed Veggie Boats

Creamy Tofu Filling:
1 (350g/12.3oz) package extra-firm tofu, squeezed of excess moisture
1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 cup fresh basil, lightly packed
2 to 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons roasted tahini
1 clove garlic
Sea or Himalayan salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste

For Assembly
Fresh tomatoes, innards removed
Mini fresh peppers, innards removed
Fresh corn, sliced right off the cob
Hemp seeds

To make the creamy tofu filling, put the tofu, nutritional yeast flakes, basil, 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice, the tahini, and garlic clove in the food processor. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste, adding lemon juice if desired.

Depending on your child’s appetite, hollow out tomatoes and peppers and put in a container. Put some of the filling in a separate container. Mix together corn and hemp seeds in a third container. Pack the ingredients in the lunch box with a small spoon for assembly.
