Naturally green colored rice

Bento content:
Rice with cabbage and courgette
-Pickles, broccoli, carrot
-Lump-fish egg, egg
-Nori
-Pasta.

As usual there are carrots and cabbage hidden underneath the nice broccoli trees. This bento came out naturally without any previous thought. Somehow it was a good surprise the way it came out! It was a pleasure to see the bento slowly create this picture. The previous ones were drawn or thought at least before I started cooking
I’ll give you the recipe of my green coloured rice (it was much more green than on the photo) but you can find other ways to naturally colour rice on Maki’s blog entry.
Hihi, I really enjoyed this bento it was really tasty.

    It’s a great idea to color rice with natural ingredients. I usually use some Vahiné “colorant alimentaire” but unfortunately it only exists in yellow, red and green…any idea to get blue rice?

    If I have to use food colouring I usually buy mine in England. I know that French people are afraid of blue food colouring…and I really have no idea to obtain blue naturally. Blueberries give a purple colouring. (This was my only idea of blue food I had)
