Bento 39 – Easy Snack

For lunch at work, we’re having vegetable fajitas. So I made a little snack bento for the evening (I have long shifts). I threw in some mixed dried fruit and nuts, baby carrots, and some leftover noodles from last night’s dinner. Then I added a piece of rice candy for a little sweetness.

Bento 35- Sick Day Bento

I recently caught a cold and wasn’t feeling too well last night when I needed to make the bento for today. So this bento is really simple, but I think it still looks nice.

It has leftover vegan mac & cheese and forbidden rice, baby carrots, and sliced apple.

Bento 31- go green

This bento is inspired by green foods. I thought it would be interesting to focus on one color with a few other colors as asides. I started out by adding a few leftover veggie sushi rolls with some wasabi and soy sauce. Then I sliced up a pear and added some edamame pods. I had a few spaces left so I added some baby carrots for an extra snack, although they aren’t green! I guess I should have put something else, but I got a huge bag of the baby carrots so I felt it would be best to eat them up.

Bento #25- Sneaky Tomato

Last night when I was making this bento, I thought some of the little homegrown tomatoes we had looked kind of like faces. So I made one into a cute little face.
This bento also has some leftovers from dinner, the au gratin potatoes, brussel sprouts, and avocado. I found out that brussel sprouts are really good with avocado. Try it out sometime! I also added a little hot sauce to the avocado to add some extra flavor for dipping the vegetables in.
I also added some green apple, strawberries, mixed nuts/dried fruit, and baby carrots and tomatoes.

Bento #2

I made this bento last night with some of the sushi leftovers from dinner. I had work today so I had to make one, since I actually needed it this time!
I just got finished eating everything and it was yummy. It was a nice little meal that turned out to be pretty filling. It’s amazing how little the bento boxes are, but how much food you can fit into them.
