    bento goodies

    Good things to put in my bento lunch box mmmmm! I keep this for goodies and snackables. I tend to fill it with leftovers from the night before for the main part of the meal. See my other cookbooks for some more inspiration. Other things I put in include babybel cheese, boiled eggs, nuts and rice crackers

    These eggs are really different from your standard hard boiled eggs and my kids love to have the in their bentos. The trick is to only medium boil the eggs initially and then crack or peel them and finish them off in the soy sauce broth. I use the smallest eggs I can find to do these, so that my kids can have two eggs and I don't have to feel guilty. The eggs aren't supposed to be overwhelmingly seasoned, but if that's what you're looking for, leave them in the broth for a longer period after boiling. I routinely double the recipe by increasing the number of eggs, but leave the amount of the broth ingredients the same.

    Recipe #188795

    This recipe originally came from the tv programme "Daily cooks" It's very versatile, the first time I made these I used Leerdammer cheese diced and sweetcorn instead of the broad beans and it was delicious! As written the recipe serves 6 but I like to make it in a muffin tin and get 12 muffins to go in my lunchbox (not all at once though ;))

    basic onigiri (riceball) recipe. Add any filling you want I particularly like Egg scrambled with some soy sauce (dark) and toasted (brush with a little miso mixed with sake and grill) Onigiri can be very hard to handmake. Moulds are available but difficult to get in the UK without paying high prices, small jelly mould or egg cups work really well.

    Recipe #178565

    This dishes colourful name comes from how I was feeling when I made it! I decided I needed to get in shape. I dug the bike out of the shed I decided to ride to work. Sixteen miles and one sore bum later I arrived home after a day at work. Despite having received a package from the Japan centre full of goodies I just couldn't be bothered and made a cheese sandwich. This posed a dilemma, what to put in my lunchbox the next day - usually it is the leftovers from the night before. After rummaging the (empty) fridge and cupboards this is what i came up with.
