Tofu Patty Bento
紫蘇豆腐ハンバーグ弁当

I continue to make bento for lunch on the weekend. The star of this bento was shiso (Japanese basil) tofu patties. It’s not that hard to make these, but they taste so good! You can certainly use these to make tofu burgers too, if you want. But this time they were served in this bento […]

Asian Sweet Potato Bento
さつまいもの炊いたん弁当

It’s typically a bit expensive but I can get it for a pretty good price at the local Asian grocery store. […]

The veggie sushi rolls were placed along with BBQ onion Kabocha, pickled ginger slices, and edamame. The biggest hit was the BBQ onion pumpkin. The BBQ onion made with store-bought fried onion was […]
