Bento 173

I did my homework last night and so this morning's bento was a breeze! I boiled a packet of dry Udon and set aside what I needed into the fridge and put the rest into the freezer. The vegetables were also cut last night and I just blanched them in salted hot water this morning.

All I did was assemble everything together and it took me less than 10 minutes to get 2 bentos ready.

#2's bento consisted of some cherry tomatoes, Udon in garlic oil and shoyu and some vinegared root vegetables and abura-age.

In the other box is some blanched cauliflower and broccoli topped with sesame seed dressing and a small box of dried cranberries.

My bento consisted of mostly the same items except that I added some Kimchi. #2 cannot take spicy food and so I didn't pack this for her.

Hi, may i know where did you buy the garlic oil and sesame seed dressing?

Anon: It's home made garlic oil. Just fry some chopped garlic in oil and when it gets brown, sieve the oil - cool it and keep in a clean bottle for use.

Sesame seed dressing, you can buy at any Jusco store.
