Tuna and egg bento

The bare tuna-paste bento was a great success, but with the arrival of my new bento container, I was left with some extra unused space. I decided to fill the space with easy to make and very tasty iri tamago, which is basically a Japanese kind of scrambled eggs! You can definitely use iri tamago in onigiri, or as a small side dish.

Whole grain wheat bread

There's something really personal about making bread — you cannot make it well, unless you care deeply and commit lots of attention. While white breads are all the rage, from time to time it's nice to enjoy a more substantial, heavier bread and this whole grain wheat bread recipe delivers beautiful, soft and moist bread ideal both for sweet toppings (I personally like strawberry or plum jam) and salty ones (cheese, ricotta or cottage cheese). It's also packing quite a lot of fiber, which is healthy and will keep you full for longer time with less of the bread itself!

Fancy tamagoyaki bento

Oh my, this one is both a looker and tastes amazingly! :-) This bento idea is based on the basic tamagoyaki recipe, so feel free to use your favorite ingredients: champignons or chanterelle mushroom, herbs, different kinds of onion, bacon bits, ham shavings etc. Go crazy! :-) It's also a very good side dish!

Marinated beef and pasta bento

Bento is not only rice, but also other ingredients, like... pasta. This recipe came to life when I had some uncooked beef left-overs and just wondered what to do with them. Cooking them as a part of bento was a great idea!

Quick teriyaki beef donburi

You can buy thin beaf slices in some grocery shops or butchers. They may be called minute steaks or quick steaks and are a great ingredient that you can use to make a quick donburi (a rice bowl with meat and vegetable toppings). It's so fast to prepare, that you can do everything in the time it takes to cook the rice!
