Carrot and onion rice

This recipe is a pretty good ‘un, in my opinion (I know, I know, who asked me?). Not only does it taste good, but it’s got veggies in it and it’s a way of naturally colouring your food without using chemicals. Now, there’s no way anyone could suggest I’m not up for dying food whenever I get the opportunity, but somehow it seems wrong to dye savoury food. Don’t know why! When you introduce sugar, all the bets are off…

Also, once you’ve softened your veggies, you bung the whole lot into rice cooker and let it cook. Easy! Obviously, you don’t have to eat this in a bento – it makes a great addition to a hot meal, too.

I really like this bento box – I have a thing for single tiered boxes. I also love Animal Crossing. I don’t know if the box is still available, but I bought it from J-List. (If you click that link, you’ll be taken to the J-List site, so if you buy anything, it earns me pennies to buy new bento stuff! Thank you!)

    I am a big fan of single tiered boxes as well. It’s always a challenge to find ones large enough to satisfy my kidlet’s needs. We do pack american style foods, and it takes a 450ml box to fill him up (and he is only 5!). The 650ml box I have is plenty for me, even without compact riceballs and egg omelets and such.

    I am so in love with this photo, it’s a work of art, makes me want to taste everything it’s so beautifully presented. I can see I will be totally sucked into the work of Bento boxes and my boys would love to eat this way. Bethx
