Dunch is about taking some of those core ingredients from your dinner and combining them with a different Sealord product for lunch!

Think Sealord Hoki Fillets with roast veggies for dinner, and then taking the extra roast veggies with a can of tuna for lunch. This way you cut down on time, food waste AND you have two different tasty meals (nobody likes endless leftovers right?).

By making small tweaks to your evening meal prep Kiwis can create an equally delicious and healthy lunch! Ready to Dunch? Try out the recipe below using two delicious Sealord products.
