This my yesterday bento with the blue naturally coloured rice. Conclusion it is really tasty and it has been approved by Bear. I tried to present a little baby boy wrapped in a cabbage leaf. A French joke, I believe.
It came to my mind that you might be interested to have a overview of different natural colouring I have blogged. (the link on the colour refers to the post I featured this rice colouring, the link on the vegetables refers to the recipe).
Red: Cherry, Beetroot , Tomato(updated).
Bright yellow, light orange: saffron.
Pale orange: coral lens.
Blue: Red cabbage with raising powder.
Green: Green cabbage, courgette.
Brown: soya sauce (updated).
I mostly used them here to dye rice, but you can dye eggs, cakes, icing sugar.
Dying eggs can also be done using tea or onions.
