Touch of Nectar

{October 21, 2011}   Simple Step by Step Bento – 15 min

First, get out your box and tools. Today I’m making onigiri and using my basic rectangular box.

Make the onigiri and place them in the box. These are filled with sauteed chanterelle mushrooms.

Next comes the side dishes and veggies. This is a small tomato stuffed with tuna and cilantro. I had mixed up the tuna to make spring rolls, but changed my mind when making lunch this morning. There is still enough mix left to make some tomorrow.

Gaps get filled in with veggies. Carrots and snowpeas here. I have a little container of green goddess salad dressing for dipping.

Then fill in the box with more veggies. Here is roasted red bell pepper (from a jar) and simmered kabocha squash.

Those onigiri look a little plain, don’t you think? How about a little furikake to dress them up? I also added a can of sparkling water and a plum for dessert.
