Eat Your Veggies Bento

I got a chance to enjoy cooking a meal again! I made two of these and ate one for dinner last night, and I think it was scrumptious.

I had boiled potatoes last week because there was a gnat problem all over the house and I wanted to get the potatoes out of the open and into the fridge, so naturally these became mashed potatoes. I cooked the Morningstar Farms chick’n strips and all the produce the same way. I just used a wee bit of of Earth Balance but when that wasn’t giving me the golden color I wanted on a lot of the food, I added a bit of water to get things going. It didn’t go exactly according to plan but I love how the brussel sprouts turned out aesthetically. The other veggies I’d cooked up were eggplant, mini sweet peppers, sauteed onions, and lima beans, all from the local farmer’s market. I am not looking forward to winter when market closes up because that means I’m stuck with sub-par produce from the grocery store.
