egg flowers bento

20 05 2010

a quick bento tonight, with may’s BOMB theme in mind:  two flowers made from hard boiled egg slices (i topped the yolks with yellow cheese so that they would be more consistent-looking), with sesame seed eyes, nori mouths, and gochujang cheeks.  i used edamame for leaves, and the flowers are on top of rice mixed with ume powder, which is layered over kidney beans for extra protein.

behind the lettuce baran is a steamed broccoli floret, a vegetarian meatball in a paper food cup, two pea pods, a tomato and some takuwan slices, and some kiwi slices with a blackberry and a raspberry.

have you entered your flower-themed bentos in the BOMB?  and have you entered my new apartment giveaway?  i’m loving all of the links and ideas people have shared with me so far!

I guess it’s FLower Bento day (just got back from Susan’s blog, which posted simultaneously)! Your egg flowers are so cute! Awesome looking meatball too; yum! A cheerful way to end the week!

thanks sheri – i think the theme synch is because of BOMB – debra is so clever in putting these fun things together for everyone!

and can you believe that meatball is meatless?! was so excited to find🙂

While your flowers are cute, the part of your bento that I like the most is the way you cut your kiwi. I’ve never thought to cut them that way, in slices.😀

thanks pikko! i had no choice because one side of the kiwi was completely mushed so it wouldn’t make nice rounds… a happy accident :o)

I looooove the flowers! Such a simple idea, yet effective. Kidney beans is a great idea to pack under rice – I had previously used leftover veg cutouts, frozen peas, celery slices ect, but beans sounds tastier. Will need to try that out.

thanks mils, hope you try it! if you’re feeling spunky throw some hot sauce in there too!
