Everything You Need to Know to Make Yummy, Nutritious Bento Box Lunches
Without the Fuss and Stress.
Preparing delicious, healthy bentos doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. In The Just Bento Cookbook 2, Makiko Itoh offers tips, tricks, and strategies to help busy people everywhere. Here are 48 menus and 200 all-new recipes for make-ahead or quick-to-assemble bento dishes that also feature many vegetarian and low-carb options.
Teriyaki Meatball Bento
Meatballs are easy to make and they freeze beautifully. When cooked right, they stay tender and moist even when cold, and can be reheated too, making them ideal for bentos.
Pork and Vegetable Roll Bento
Pork is the most popular type of meat eaten in Japan. It can be used in a wide range of recipes and cooks up quite quickly, so it's perfect for bentos.
Make-Ahead Vegetables and Sides
All these recipes can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator, and most can be frozen. Try to pick at least two vegetables as sides or space fillers for every bento box. Choosing ones from different color groups not only makes your bento look more attractive, it also makes it better balanced nutritionally.
Salmon and Cream Cheese Chirashizushi
Keep a stash of precooked rice in the freezer, and you’ll have what you need to create all kinds of just-put-on-a-bed-of-rice bentos, even sushi. The type of sushi that’s easiest to make, and the most suited to bentos, is chirashizushi, which is sushi rice with various toppings.
