It’s the first time I find quail eggs in the nearby shop. I couldn’t resist trying them. I had in mind a eagle’s nest made with soba noodles and some green sprinkles which should be quite flavoured to highlight a bit our cold lunch. I had prepared some flavoured greens to go with them and was trying to present it not to awfully, when Bear came with the idea of doing 4 nests and adding olives to the last nest.
The broccoli nest is laying over some sweet Japanese black beans mix. These pulses are really sweet and make a truly good bento item. The salty taste from the sprinkles contrasted really nicely with this sweetness. Bear came home really happy of this bento! I enjoyed it too by the way, but somehow when Bear enjoys it too it’s so more meaningful…
