Sticky Rice & Wreath Bento

Sticky Rice & Wreath Bento, originally uploaded by sherimiya ♥.
Made yummy sticky rice! Love to use sticky rice for bento. All the goodies are already in there, and the kids really like it. I added a small salad with marinated artichoke heart, carrot sticks, peapod vase with flower, and cherry tomato "wreath"! It's just a circle of tomatoes, but I'm calling it a wreath, and it's my festive Christmas detail in this bento :)
Plum and yellow carrot flowers for dessert.

Do you have any favorite "one-dish" meals you like to prepare because it's a fast and easy way to get the protein and veggies on the table all together? As you may have seen, I do... and I am always on the lookout for more!


  1. Lovely bento Sheri! Very festive ... And I will say fried rice is my favorite one-dish meals. Easy to prepare and my family love it :)

  2. Wow...your bento always looks so good. You know how to place simple ingredients to look awesome!

    I just posted my favourite one-dish meal with recipe in my blog this week:

  4. What a wonderful Bento. You are so talented!

    Fried rice is awesome I agree! And I love Wok-Noodles with veggy and protein of my choice.

  5. Hmmm, looks great, yummy and tasty ^-^
    I have a favorite oneädish meal, too.
    It's a kind of tuna salad.

    You need rice, tuna in can with vegetables, hard boiled eggs, pickles, Salt and Pepper.
    Mix all the ingredients and done ;) It's best to be eaten hot. I love this.

  6. Such a beautiful bento! My favorite one dish meal is miso ramen! We use myojo chikuzanmai miso ramen and add in our own protein and veggies.

  7. Bento Lunch Blog, Thank you! I love to wok-fry noodles too :)
