Bento Mania #42

Top: Sweet potatoes
Left to right: Inarizushi (sold in MarketHall), grilled shishamo and grilled salmon

The tofu skin (aburaage) is also known as brown bag sushi that has been cooked in a sweet-soy sauce based.  Since it is pre-packed, all I need to do is stuff the cooked rice in the Inarizushi. Some people may squeeze the sauce out but I prefer mine to be wet as they are able to retain moisture like a disposable diaper. Inarizushi is ready to eat and often, people like to put them in a bento box and I love them as they make great finger food during party too. Since the bags prevent the rice from drying out, it is actually even better after they have ‘rested’ for an hour or so for the flavor on the skins to penetrates into the rice.

    i love inari-s too ! This is definitely your bento , not your kids, right? got ubi kentang somemore ! feel like going out to get some ubi kentang for myself too !

    The Queen says: Yup, this is the adult’s bento. Kids had the inari only without the shishamo. And I haven’t try giving them sweet potato. Chances is they will reject it. But haven’t try, never know ya? You know how it is so difficult to introduce new food to the kids.
