Quinoa Bento (29)

12 Apr

I finally made another bento. It seems like it’s been so long since my last one.

Quinoa bento

Quinoa with crimson raisins and toasted walnuts. It would be vegetarian except that it’s cooked in chicken stock. Sweet pepper strips, cucumbers and strawberries round up the box. I think there’s too much green in this box, some darker green lining would have worked better. Or a different item instead of cucumbers. Yummy meal but it wasn’t filling enough. I should of added protein even though the quinoa has protein, it wasn’t enough.

Bento challenge wise: I don’t seem to be able to make cute bento boxes often. Sure I can make them appealing looking but I can’t seem to be bothered with adding in a cute cheese cutout on top of that quinoa. It takes too much time to think of a theme and then draw it and cut it out. Otherwise, good day today.

    I think it’s cute just fine! Love the quinoa dish. I want to do something different, but with a different fruit. I wonder what I could substitute for the raisins…hmmm….

      Thanks! Cranberries are an option. The toasted walnuts are great with quinoa.

    Don’t worry, your bento lookks and sounds geat as it is!
    Too much decoration is a minus. A good balance in coloursand ingedients is the best!

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.

    Any tips?

    Cooking gqmes is a subject which moet ladies
    need to examine. I enjoy cooking, but along with everyone I find
    fitting it in to the busy scedule off our family can often be a challenge.
    So freeze inn single laqyers and do not overlap food if
    you cann help it.
