Yasai Tenpura aka Fried Fish & Veggie Cake (69)

Bottom Tier: Yasai Tenpura chicks, Roasted Lotus Root, Peppers, Yam, Brussel Sprout.Top Tier: Clementine, Babybel Cheese, Green & Black Olives & Cherry Pepper.

To help make bento-making quick I dice, slice, and/or chop my fresh vegetables when I get home from the market. I then freeze single layers on cookie sheets and, once frozen, pop them into freezer-safe containers. This prevents things from freezing into a clump and allows me to take out just what I need.

For today’s bento I took out red, orange, and yellow pepper slices, purple yam cubes, sliced lotus root, and brussel sprouts. These went onto a foil covered baking pan with a little olive oil, garlic, pepper, and rosemary. Popped this into the convection oven (I love that thing!) at 400 degrees until done.

This bento also has some Yakai Tenpura (fried fish and veggie cake). This is an easy source of protein and it comes in flat pieces making it easy to shape with a knife or cutters.

To finish off this ideal meal I’ve added a babybel cheese, olives, cherry pepper, and a clementine for dessert.

Overall a pretty healthy meal with lots of great colors and flavors.
