This week seems to be very slow, and today is only Tuesday. So I decided to cheer myself and give some colors to the week by making this colorful rice balls bento which by number happen to bethe lucky number #88 bento 🙂
The rice balls itself was simple, basic round shape onigiri mix with carrots, cucumber and teriyaki ground beef.
For the orange ball – cut the carrot into small pieces, then stiry fry with a little butter and salt, I add a dash of japanese togarashi for some spiciness.
For the green ball – cut japanese cucumber (kyiru) into small pieces and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
For the supposedly to be brown ball – stir fry ground beef with sesame oil, teriyaki sauce and pepper.
Mix 1.5 table spoon white rice with 1 table spoon of each ingredients and and shape them with plastic wrap to form round shape.
I add a red radish star into the box to fill in the empty space.
I happen to spot this cute radish star at one of the bento by @Ohayo bento, a friend I met from twitter, she made many cute and pretty bento, please visit her at http://ohayobento.com .
