5 Appetizer, Bento, Cakes, Side dish, and Snack recipes with Arugula, Dried onion, Mirin, Sausages, and Smoked salmon for No eggs diet

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!

Deluxe bento idea

This idea mixes the basic sausage bento idea with previously mentioned teriyaki smoked salmon don for a more premium feel of the bento, without adding any more trouble while making the bento.

Teriyaki Smoked Salmon Don

There is literally no easier recipe in the world, that tastes so good and takes only few minutes to cook, including rice cooking time! I always do it during hot summer days, because it's a no-brainer.

You can serve it as a main dish with more fancy toppings, or as a side dish, but also it's a great addition to bento or a small snack!

Teriyaki sausages and rice bento

Sausages are a huge part of my bento making — they are easy to prepare, ridiculously delicious and so straightforward to store that I just like to toss some of them into any of my bento!

This particular recipe has a teriyaki twist, thanks to cooking the sausages in water with teriyaki sauce. Yum!

Sausage salad bento idea

Bento is not only rice, and you can eat a delicious meal with other ingredients like potatoes, green beans and... cornichons! This is my bento idea for days when I literally cannot look at rice, e.g. the day after sushi day. And, because most of the ingredients are pre-made in jars, you can quickly assemble this set when you're short on time. What's not to love about this bento idea?!
