bento #17

I think this is my most authentic Japanese bento yet!  It was super yummy, tasty, and filling... all the flavors worked together very well.

- chili sauce tofu (I used Ohayo Bento's wing sauce) minus the coconut milk
- brown rice with soy sauce
- carrot kinpira (from Just Bento)... super good, a little spicy
- tamagoyaki... my first try at this as well.  It was too thick, I think.  (Just Bento again... although I only added soy sauce to mine)
- raw green pepper
- a mushroom cooked in sesame oil

I think this is my favorite bento yet, and it's vegetarian!  This was also the most cooking I've done for a bento... used one small pan for the sauce, cooked the kinpira and tofu one after another, and one for tamagoyaki, then mushroom.  Yikes, messy kitchen!


  1. Ooh, that does look yummy all around. And it's vegetarian, so win!

    I think you mentioned a while back that you had a ton of recipes to share. I look forward to that list. I'll definitely try the carrot kinpira... as soon as I restock on carrots. I just used the last of my carrots today. :(

    Awesome job on going right for the good recipes from the get-go!

  2. I've been planning to put up the list when I don't have a bento to post... so, that hasn't happened yet. ;)

  3. Looks delicious!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed that sauce ^_^ I;m going to have to try the carrot kinpira, it looks so good! Can't wait to see your recipes!!!!
