Bento Box Lunch Wednesday

18 Apr

Sad news, guys.  Some weirdo stole my frickin’ lunch box out of the communal fridge at the law school.  Which, it’s not weird to want to possess a really cool tiny little lunch box, I guess.  But they left the containers that were inside of the lunch box – meaning they specifically opened the lunch box, removed the containers, and then took the box but not the containers.  Thus, a weirdo.  Anyway, because I still have the inner containers, bento box lunch Wednesdays live on.  Except minus the box.  The containers travel in a plastic bag now until I have emotionally recovered enough to order another lunch box.

This box is made up of leftovers from homemade General Tso’s tofu, some rice, a small and simple salad, and some shelled edamame with soy sauce.  I suggest you remove the tofu dish to the rice container and then microwave those together, leaving the edamame and salad nice and cool for munching.

Bento Box Lunch Wednesday

Bento Components:

About 1 cup jasmine rice, cooked

1 serving General Tso’s tofu

Large handful lettuce with splash of rice wine vinegar, salt, and pepper

1/4 cup shelled edamame, tossed with 1 tbs. soy sauce

¹To make rice component:

Bring 1 cup of water to a rolling boil.  Add a splash of preferred oil (I use olive oil).  Add 1/2 cup of jasmine rice.  Allow water to return to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a simmer.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until rice is soft.
