10 Bento, Side dish, and Snack recipes with Brown sugar, Canned tuna, Cocoa powder, Gelatin, Pork loin, Rapeseed oil, Smoked salmon, Sweet pepper powder, and Yogurt for No eggs and No soy diet

Yogurt drink

Drinking yogurt is a terrific drink for autumn — it tastes fresh, contains probiotic bacteria and makes a great dessert or a quick snack, not only during autumn. But during this time of the year it is especially important to keep the natural defense high against viruses and bacteria, and yoghurt is a superb ally in that! Did I mention it tastes great? ;-)

This recipe came to life when I was left with no fresh milk after a short travel — I had only one mini-bottle of a drinkable probiotic yogurt and some condensed milk for coffee (sic!). But against all odds, it worked out!

Tuna paste bento

Tuna paste is ridiculously easy to prepare and makes a great no cooking bento, cutting the preparation time to less than 20 minutes, including rice cooking time! Now, that's what I would call cooking on the go! You can also use the tuna paste for a great tasting onigiri or sushi.

Teriyaki pork strips with shallots bento

This simple recipe requires only 3 ingredients: sliced pork loin (already mentioned minute steaks or easy steaks), shallots and teriyaki sauce. It's also one of the lazy recipes — part of it you can prepare evening before, and finish it quickly before serving or packing your bento box. Plus, marinating for a long time allows increased flavors to transfer easily across the meat!

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!
