Everyday meals
Here are recipes and photos of my everyday bentos. I aim towards healthy portion-controlled and varied meals. I do not stick on a particular cuisine: every cuisine has some spice to add to our everyday life!
My recipes tend, as much as possible, to be completely homemade.

Hope to see you there!

Hey, and by the way, I've decided to offer a french translation of my posts...maybe you'd be interested.

Bento content
-Kiwi 2
-Apple quarter
-Vegan chocolate muffin
-Onigri with nutritional yeast
-Cabbage yoghurt
-Celery salad and vinaigrette
-Carrot sticks

The sun is out, shining right through our windows. It is the best moment of the year to have a bento for lunch. The best thing is that we can now just walk a little and sit under the shade of a tree in Lacienki park. Yes, I have the chance to work nearby. I believe that every Warsaw inhabitant is proud of this famous park. They can be! It's a real joy to sit under a tree on a bench and forget for one hour the stress and the work enjoying my lunch.
Bear doesn't have the same chance, but as he is mostly on the road lately he happens to eat his bentos in much fancier places than I do: Augustow, Kielce, Wroclaw, Krakow, Zakopane,...

Bento content
-Vegetarian pesto tod in a pot
-Cabbage salad with yoghurt
-Lettuce
-Raw cauliflower, carrot sticks,
-Sandwich with vegetarian pâté and brown seedy bread (only Bf)
-Little seitan crackers thick like dried meat, but much tastier!
-Quinoa with lens (soya sauce)

I am jaleous. Yes, I believe this was the feeling I had when viewing the nice tod in pots in bentos lately.
I just wanted to have some in my bento too! But a vegetarian tasty version. What I remember from the meaty version is quite heavy to digest. I wanted a light and spicy version. Result: Bear is totally fond of them. And they were great even cold in our lunch bento.
I didn't have much time this evening and not much in the fridge either. So I completed this bento with a simple seedy brown sandwich which is maybe this seed gratin Cicerolle was speaking of :). I redid some of these little seitan crakers that I had to bread with nuts and walnut as I had finished most of my dried okara. You should definitely taste them!
With some fresh carrot sticks and cauliflower trees to complete the bento, I was rewarded with a great hug for this lunch!

Bento content
-Sandwich (spinach, vegetarian pâté, cucumber)
-Courgette cupcake (vegan, bread based)
-Banana-coco cupcake (vegan) or sweet courgette cupcakes
-Mandarin slices
-Kiwi slices
-Carrot salad
-Vegan tsatsiki
-Japanese style vinaigrette

I just can't read. I mean at least a recipe! I was catching up some recipes in Oceane's blog when I fell on this cupcake recipe with Tastsiki. The recipe seemed tempting and the idea of having it for a bento was just great. So here I go straight to the shop to get what I was missing in my fridge. I don't know how in my twisted mind I thought I needed courgette to do her cupcakes. Please don't ask. I felt so stupid back home in front of my computer, ready to try her recipe...and seeing that my memories of the ingredients were really fantaisist! And I had promised Bear some fantastic courgette cupcakes...So this is how I ended up with some courgette cupcakes with Tsatsiki. A good bento item, it was a real joy to gobble up my lunch today! And, because I really bought too much courgette I did some sweet courgette cupcakes for desert. Can you see any difference between the two?
The other bento has banana-coco flavoured cupcakes.

Bento content
-Falafel
-Lettuce
-Cabbage yoghurt salad
-Sandwich 1: vegan pâté [base mung beans], cheese, lettuce, mayonnaise
-Sandwich 2: aubergine caviar, seitan breaded with okara and miso spices, lettuce.

As usual, I'm in a hurry, trying to get everything done and still to eat properly so I went for sandwiches today. I saw on a few forums that people don't imagine sandwiches to be vegetarian.
I think this is truly amazing! Hey wake up guys, there are thousands of incredible variations of vegetarian/vegan pâtés. This decided me to show you this really simple but tasty bento. Maybe sandwiches would be a little more vegetarian among non-vegetarian eaters! ;)
(The box is my little Totoro box which got damaged during my last trip. It's last time, before ending in the museum of broken bento boxes...I hate these low cost flights!).
