Eat Your Greens

This was the bento I made for the earlier half of the week. Granted, I should have taken the photo Sunday as opposed to Wednesday, because it would have looked way fresher and yummier, but here we are with my procrastinating and meal-planning self. I even have to leave for work in 3 minutes. *yanks curtain back into place*

This bento features Morningstar’s vegan chick’n strips with sauteed lima beans and brussel sprouts from the farmer’s market.

Top 5 Vegan Bento of the Week

It was a light week this time around, but I was pleasantly surprised with the high quality of all the bento in the tag.

Top 5 Vegan Bento of the Week

I had a hard time with picking out some of these. A lot of the best looking ones are veterans in the bento making game but after looking at my blog this week, I became nostalgic; one of these bento is totally how I was when I was new to the art form. I wasn’t great at cooking(still need to grow a lot) presentation of the food itself, let alone at taking photographs. I am excited to see this person grow at food prep, I think they show promise.

Chickpeas and Rice and Daiya

This bento is almost exactly like Monday’s, but this time has Daiya!

Ok, and there’s no furikake in this one. But anyway, the Daiya is the Gouda kind, which was phenomenal. I was even eating chunks of that stuff plain, it has no right to be that tasty!

I’m pleased with how this bento turned out. I seasoned the chickpeas with a mixture of cayenne pepper and Old Bay, the rice with a vegan friendly beefsteak-plant furikake, and added in some home made pickles and cherry tomatoes. Simple but yummy!

Pickles and Seitan

This bento has been hiding in my photos for a while now. It’s a pretty simple one, just some home made seitan, basil, pickles, cherry tomatoes, and couscous with Earth Balance.

Nothing special, but it was a decent tasting lunch.

Top 5 Vegan Bento of the Week

This week I’ve been trying to polish off all of my produce before it went bad, which has been fun, but these bento are way cuter. A few of the Instagrammers made insanely cute, yet simple, character bento!

Got myself a new bento box with turquoise color. Filled it up with kidney beans with home made hummus, pan seared cajun tofu strips, brown rice, spinach bed and pan roasted veggies (local squash, bell pepper strips, and asragus), mustard mapple dressings, and grapes for lunch today. What a big lunch!!! 😜 Vegan and it's clean: no canned kidney beans, no store bought hummus, no no-no's. All are self-made (or processed) 🙏 . . . . xoxo, Kika #tokyovegan #vegantokyo #feedfeed #feedfeedvegan #vegan #plantbased #plantpowered #healthyfood #veganfoodshare #veganfood #veganrecipe #veganlife #veganism #veganfoodporn #vegansofig #veganfoodie #vegandish #bestofvegan #worldwideveganfood #letscookvegan #ahealthynut @a.healthy.nut #lunch #healthylunch #veganlunch #cleaneating #japanesebento #bentobox #bento #flyingtiger #veganbento
