bento #23

Another vegetarian bento.  I wanted comfort food as I wasn't hungry and didn't want to cook, so I went with risotto-- plus, I had some mushrooms to use up.  This was the first time I'd made risotto with brown rice, and it took FOREVER, definitely over an hour.

Packed in my Miffy bentos from Bento & Co:
- risotto with fresh button and dried shiitake mushrooms
- orange slices and grapes
- romaine and spinach salad; Italian dressing in the blue strawberry
- rice crackers and agar agar jelly

I should have put the salad in the largest container, but green on green?  Sometimes visual aesthetics are more important than nutrition.  ;)

  1. I agree with the visual > nutrition, even though it shouldn't...
