I made my first Bento lunch today. And yes, Virginia there is a learning curve. I didn't want to look at any photos of the glorious boxes I've seen, so I just used good healthy food I had in the house and composed it. (It's best to click on the photo to really see it.)
The box on the left contains mushroom caps stuffed with sauteed broccoli and garlic with fresh oregano on top. It sits on a bed of field greens and grape tomatoes with balsamic vinegar.
The second, smaller box has brown rice surrounded by whole almonds and topped with sundried tomato slivers and a sprig of rosemary.
For dessert I had 3 amazing fresh strawberries and a few tangerine wedges. After the photograph, I ate it all. It was a small lunch, but I really was satisfied, although my dog was perplexed during the photography.
