Quad-Color Bento


Yes, it’s okay to make your bento pretty.

To make a bento like this you place rice at the bottom and add different colored food on top.

This is a popular way to make a bento in Japan.

It’s typically called a tri-color bento because you usually have three different colors, but then I realized that mine had four colors!


For this bento I had shiso tofu, yuzu radish, sugar snap peas, and sesame carrots.


Making this bento feels like painting a picture.

I really enjoy this process.


Pretty, healthy, and tasty.


If you don’t have a bento box, you can still enjoy this meal in a bowl like this.



I usually make some extra.

These come in handy for the rest of the week, as they can be used for a lot of different things like salad, stir-fry, soup, fried rice, etc.
