More bento fun.
Again a quick lunch for the kids, this time featuring boiled and salted edamame as the main dish. Rice drizzled with a little teriyaki sauce (for moisture) then topped with furikake fills the role of starch for the meal, while octodogs provide a little extra needed protien. The small clementine and grape tomatoes add colour and a serving of fruit/vegetables. Yogurt, a small granola bar (for an after-school snack) and an apple round out the lunch.
The octodogs are probably the closest I get to a kawaii (cute) bento. I’ll post separately how to make these fun extras for a kid’s lunch in the near future.
