Just one!

Today I only had to make a bento for myself, while i enjoy making bento for others it can be quite a struggle to think of what to pack as well as taking a little extra time to prepare.

So it was quite nice to be able to wake up later and only have to throw together a fast and tasty lunch.

This lunch took about 15 minutes in total to make, pack and photograph.

This lunch contains:

  • Mixed salad
  • Cherry tomatoes and
  • Egg coated noodles ( I think they need a name.. maybe Ramago? a mix of Tamago (egg) and Ramen (Noodles)

<u>To make the “Ramago”</u> (This is for one serving using a packet ramen)

  • Put 100ml of water in a pan and bring to boil.
  • Add noodles and any spices and stir to break up.
  • Keep stirring until all of the water has evaporated and then turn off heat.
  • Break an egg into a measuring jug and mix.
  • Put the noodles into the egg and stir to coat.
  • Add noodles and eggs back to the pan and cook fully over low heat.
  • Once the egg is fully cooked, turn of heat and serve as desired.

My entry into the #5forfriday bento task!

20120810-195714.jpg

As part of the #bentofamily on twitter as well as swapping pics of our bento achievements and recipes etc we sometimes like to give each other a challenge, thus #5forfriday was born!

The task: create a delicious and healthy bento with only 5 ingredients!

This may sound easy but it’s not, you never realise how many different elements make up a bento!

So mine consists of rice flavoured with chip spice ( we were allowed a spice without counting as an ingredient),
Tamagoyaki, sweetcorn, peppers and carrots cut into Sakura and ume shapes.

I hope you like it 🙂
