flowered inarizushi redux bento

7 04 2010

tomorrow’s lunch is another quick one — when will i find an apartment and stop this running around?!

this tiffin contains three inarizushi pockets filled with rice i mixed with rice wine vinegar, ume furikake, and peas, and topped with purple potato flowers and leaves (sesame seed accents).  as sides, i have some steamed broccoli, three takuwan slices, a plump strawberry, a star-cut radish, and some quick-pickled carrot shavings.  all of that sits on a bed of lettuce, underneath of which is some sliced nashi.

Looks yummy! I like when the bento comes together quickly, whether or not I have to run around looking at apartments!
The purple makes this one, for sure.
I used my tiffin today too, woo!
I think today’s the day. *crosses fingers*

This bento also makes me hungry and drooling! (I haven’t had breakfast yet).
These purple potato cutouts highlight the inari…so cool and cute!

Of course I voted for your butterfly bento just now. :D

Delicious Inari! The purple potato flowers are really nice with the sesame seeds details … match up to the background too! Megan, I wish all the best for you in the contest and vote (^.^)

Yay for the MRB! Although YOU don’t need it’s magic! ;) Gosh those purple potatoes are striking and inarizushi is hard to resist. Hope you find your dream apt. soon.

thanks debra! i feel like the MRB helps the arrangement, no matter what – i tried these inari in a rectangular box and really wasn’t feeling it.

thanks for apt. wishes too!

Sometimes I wish that I liked radishes just so I could use them in bento, lol! This is a great bento, so fresh and pretty. ^_^

thanks melanie! you don’t like them at all? i think they are so good, these little red ones crispy and refreshing and a little bit peppery. what about pickled? maybe you could wean yourself onto them that way, since the pickling adds some sweetness?

Nice color. It looks great. I like the cute flowers. :-)

thanks kathy! i love this color too, and find that it deepens if i steam the potatoes the night before and then refrigerate before bentoing.

Winning MRB and ultra violet OSP combo! I find this composition lively and soothing at the time–its just really lovely, gamene. It was so fun to vote for your bento, btw!

thanks jenn – for your compliment and for your vote! i was trying for soothing and stylish with this inarizushi box. and regarding the contest, i’d love to win, but it really is an honor to be a finalist, and the entries are all lovely, and now i have more international bento blogs on my daily read list, from contestants whose work i didn’t know about before!

I must admit, inari sushi is my favourite. Is this the sweetened kind out of a tin?

hey stu, this is one of my faves too! mine are not from a tin, but from a package in the refrigerator section of my local korean convenience store!
