Naturally green colored rice
rice with cabbage and courgette, pickles, lump-fish egg, broccoli, egg, nori, carrot, pasta.
As usual there are carrots and cabbage hidden underneath the nice broccoli trees. This bento came out naturally without any previous thought. Somehow it was a good surprise the way it came out! It was a pleasure to see the bento slowly create this picture. The previous ones were drawn or thought at least before I started cooking.
I'll give you the recipe of my green coloured rice (it was much more green than on the photo). You can find other ways to naturally colour rice on Maki's blog entry
Green coloured rice:
5cm of courgette, 2 leaves of green cabbage, 1 cup of rice, 2 cups of water, half of a stock cube.
Mince the vegetables (I use a sharp knife, but if you have a blender...). Then, cook all the ingredients all together over high heat until it the water boils. Then cover the pan with a lid and put over low heat until all the water is absorbed.
Hihi, I really enjoyed this bento it was really tasty.
