bibimbap onigiri bento

8 11 2010

tomorrow’s lunch is leftovers from tonight’s dinner, slightly rearranged:  instead of just packing the leftover black-and-brown rice into the tiffin (or a section thereof), i shaped it into two triangular onigiri, which i then partly coated in sesame seeds, and partly wrapped in sesame leaves.

i put a little bit of each of the namul (radish, carrot, mushrooms and pickled cucumber, plus some sprouts, ferns and sesame spinach buried underneath), and then fried up a few little quail eggs instead of one the big hen’s egg we used for each bowl at dinner.  finally, i packed some gochujang in a tiny mayo container, and added a vine-ripe tomato for color.

rearranging normal, eat-at-home dinners (whether using mini-versions of ingredients, or mini-portions) is one of my favorite bento past-times!

Yummy! I love me some Korean bento food. At first I thought the onigiri were skunks or hedgehogs, heh. I’ll bet you can’t wait to dig into this one!

Yum. New combos of leftovers or ingredients used in a different way is a lot of the fun for me too – that and playing with the colors. Yours has both 🙂

It’s beautiful! I love the effect of the pale sesame seeds on the dark rice.

Lovely! I think that your onigiri look more heart shaped than triangular and I like the way you coated them with sesame seeds!

Love the onigiri, so pretty and unusual, I’ve never seen something like this before. At first glance I thought chocolate / coconut treats. It all looks delish!
