Bento no.147 had already been baptized Bow Tie Bento but when I saw all the frills I had put in I decided to add the term ‘baroque’ as well. Roccoco might have been better but I like alliteration. Have you noticed? ;)

And then there was that whole tier full of brownies that couldn’t be ignored… So today’s bento is a real tongue-twister! ;)

Baroque Bow Tie & Brownie Bento (26-07-2011)


  • fruit — classic combination of melon and red berries (with a few cherries added)
  • pasta salad with green beans, tree onions and caper berries (in fruschetta dressing) on a bed of curly red leaf lettuce
  • green olive
  • curled carrot (hehehe I bet you want to know how to do that! ;)
  • half a veggie sausage hiding underneath spring onion tassel
  • radish flowers
  • spicy roasted chickpeas (bento #145 contains link to recipe), sunflower seeds and pepitas
  • cucumber flower cup with hummus to dip
  • switchback cut gherkins
  • beach ball radish
  • golden raisins
  • mini carrots
  • not shown: tumbler of fresh orange juice

And here’s the box full of vegan brownies!

Now you didn’t think I was going to eat them all by myself, did you? I baked a whole batch for a friend’s birthday on Sunday and these leftovers are to be shared with my co-workers at coffee time. Did I mention my colleagues are always happy to see me? ;P

Last week we spent my birthday in the cinema watching Oscar nominated movies all day long. A perfect way of celebrating as far as I’m concerned, but of course it’s fun to have some family over (and get presents!) too. So I had a belated B-day party on Sunday and some leftover yumminess ended up in tomorrow’s (Tuesday) bento.

Belated B-day Bento, 08-03-2011

Right container

  • The Adirondack Chick’s ‘Unstuffed Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers‘: brown rice with tomato, green peppers and zucchini (really good recipe!)
  • marinated mushrooms (cremini & namelo)
  • radish flowers
  • parsley olives on a skewer
  • garlic olives on a skewer
  • lettuce lining
  • basil, courgette and carrot details

Front container

  • marinated grilled courgette
  • raw vegetables: orange pepper, cauliflower, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, corn salad & rocket
  • store-bought baba ganoush (really wanted to bring some of my homemade creamy hummus but ran out of it at the last minute)
  • fried tofu
  • mixed nuts

On the side

  • 1/2 apple
  • 1/2 Poire Williams

The gorgeous tulips were a present from my mother-in-law. Yep, the in-laws are awesome. :) My sister-in-law gave me my very first vegan cookbook for a present: La Dolce Vegan! by Sarah Kramer. And she didn’t even know I was looking for a cookery book to suit my new eating habits! She’s also the one who gave me the World Food Café cookbook that I recently raved about. So you may expect another review somewhere along the line. ;)

And finally — no birthday without cake! Newbie vegan or not. Here’s what I’ll be treating my colleagues to: vegan Brownies & Spicy Applesauce Cake with Lemon Frosting. YUM!
