No smileys, flowers, and cute things adorn today’s bento. Instead, it’s all about taste as this extremely flavorful bento promised to make my lunch break a happy one. Aside from being delicious, the other nice thing about this bento is that it was quick to prepare. I had it cooked and good to go in under half an hour–and everything was made from scratch.
â€¢ Beef Stroganoff on Couscous. Excellent pairing, the couscous sopped up the sauce without drying it. Good pairing for speed really, I think this can be done in 15 minutes, tops. Recipes? Both of them are products of my personal experiments. Here’s the Beef Stroganoff and here’s the Beefy Couscous. Honk beef-beef if you like it! (Feel free to roll your eyes at the lame joke.)
â€¢ Orange slices. Half an orange really.
From our Tip Jars:
Preparing a bento for one? Cling wrap / Press and Seal to the rescue! Slice your fruit (oranges, apples, etc) in two, then wrap the rest in cling wrap, then refrigerate. Add to the next day’s bento. No wastage!
â€¢ Tomato wedges
â€¢ Cucumber slices
â€¢ Lychee Jelly Cup
