Bento # 20 : Cute Seal Bento

Bento # 20 - Cute Seal Bento

After a while I decided to invest in a real  tamagoyaki pan aka rectangular pan (all this time I’ve been using the round non sticking pan) so I bought a nice green pan last weekend and start practicing to make good egg sheet and tamagoyaki.

And the result as shown in the picture above, notice my flower from egg sheet ? Not perfect but looks good and I just love it.

What’s in the box

  • 2 steam rice balls & Nori for the seal’s eyes, mouth and whiskers
  • Few steamed edamame -> stick into spagehetti
  • 1 egg -> for the egg flower
  • 3 pcs fried middle wings
  • Few lotus root chips -> which I made on Wednesday
  • Cheery tomatoes
  • Grapes and carrots

Notes : You may notice that I have the same carrot flowers in my last few days Bento, that was because I made a bunch of carrot flowers and then froze then for later use. It is more practical than always have to stock fresh carrots , in my earlier Bento making days, I always stock fresh carrots but then I don’t use them fast enough and they get spoiled and wasted. Frozen baby carrots can last longer but since they have limitation due to its size so I copy the frozen method with regular carrots, it is very practical,  time and cost saving too.

  1. Your seal twins are soo cute!

    The egg flower looks great too, congratulations.
    After making the egg sheet how did you make it into a flower?

    Great tip for the fresh carrots, do you par boil them before you freeze them?


    • Hi Pepper,
      once you got the rectangular egg sheet, fold them into 2 and then slice/cut the folded area (upper part) at about 0.5cm width (the length is approximate 1/2 of your folded egg sheet)
      For this flower version I use the diagonal cut, then roll the flower sheet and pin them with bento pick or spaghetti. If you cut/slice them in straight line and roll them you will get a different version of flower (referring to the ham flower in my Bento #16 : Garden Bento).

      And yes, I par boil the carrots before freezes them.
