November 1st Bento #161
Here’s the bento I had on November 1st to celebrate World Vegan Day. Apologies for the bad pic: quinoa seems to be camera shy.. ;)

Left tier
Quinoa salad with tomatoes, cucumber, spring onion, corn, bell pepper and more on a bed of lettuce. Cute red paper container with orange-basil tempeh as salad topping.

Right tier
Radish, fig, half a kiwi fruit, another kawaii container from Japan (sakura print) containg nutmix for salad (sunflower seeds, pepitas, pinenuts and pecans), apple bunny (usagi ringo) and cinnamon almonds.

The almonds had sweated and gave my apple a sweet spicy taste — nom!

Lots of proteins in quinoa, tempeh and nuts! :)

Now where did I get those nice new paper foil containers? My friend MaaikeB and her family went shopping for me in Japan! Here’s a picture of the goodies they brought back. I’m one happy grrl!

Goodies from Japan!

I present to you not only our last CSA bag of organic vegetables in 2009, but also the last one of the season! We will have to buy our own veggies again until spring :-o

A huge surprise was the kiwi fruit — a first, and so cute! Other greens: red pepper, leek, elstar apples, rosemary, red cabbage and Brussels sprouts. Yum! We were also supposed to get some corn salad but it was hidden under the snow… Clever corn salad ;)

Bento #30 came to work on Monday October 29th and was filled with leftovers from Sunday’s mahjong date (which I won btw :)

Bento #30

On the left: veggies (cauliflower florets, radishes and carrots), fresh basil leafs, laughing cow cheese wedge and hiding underneath is a container with homemade salsa picante.

Right tier: plain nacho crumbs, little plum tomatoes, mixed nuts and edamame.

On the side some pear and kiwi sprinkled with lemon.

It was very yummy ;) A pity that the weather was grey because now my picture turned out kind of bleak as well :(

Also posted in the LiveJournal Bentolunch community for details. Alongside several Halloween bento’s because of the date… That’s not a really big festivity in Holland though.

Bento #29

So here’s the bento I took yesterday on my first day back to work. I tried to extend my holiday spirit by taking tabbouleh salad, fresh mint for tea and a mix of nuts that came all the way from Cappadocia in Turkey: roasted chick peas, apricot seeds and almonds coated in honey and sesame seeds. Yummy! I also added some dried cranberries.

But I took some other stuff as well: a La vache qui rit cheese wedge, cherry tomatoes, Japanese peas and kiwi (peeled and sliced in the morning) with some lemon juice on the side.

Another way of keeping my holiday near is reading Dance with Death by Barbara Nadel. It’s a thriller set in Cappadocia and I bought it on site ;) Thankfully we didn’t find any dead bodies in the caves we visited!

Gnoe goes ExtraVeganza!
