strawberry onigiri bento

1 05 2011

tomorrow’s lunch was fairly quick and easy to pack using leftovers from tonight’s dinner: two round onigiri made from rice mixed with sauteed broccolini stems and garlic (which is how i served it the first time, not mixed especially for the onigiri), plus a few small pieces of pan-seared salmon filet.  i topped the onigiri with “strawberries” made from fish sausage, sesame seeds, and snow pea tops, using another great idea from akinoichigo’s blog.

the rest of the bento has one of the brightest red strawberries i’ve ever come across in my market, a little bit of tomato, some snow peas, broccolini tops, a takuwan rosette, and a few slices each of mini-cucumber and tangerine to fill empty spaces.  i’m looking forward to this relatively light and healthy lunch.

i hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  i have another busy work week ahead, but can’t wait to catch up on my favorite blogs and twitter feeds when i get some down time…

How sweet! I like the strawberries; both real and faux. Can’t beat salmon & rice either. And all packed in the bean magewappa? Just perfect 🙂

Adorable and cheerful! Love the fresh sliced tomato peeking out–so cute! I’ve been thinking about making a strawberry themed bento all weekend (whole foods had a nice sale on organic ones), delightful inspiration here megan!

This looks amazingly delicious! I’ve been craving onigiri lately and these look fabulous! What is the paper that you use? Just newspaper?
