This is an old photo from late august in Warsaw. It was one of these sunny Polish days when I had time to do pies and when I had some left-overs of crust-pastry. What can one do with it? I usually just roll it down and do some little squares, on which I sprinkle with sesame seeds, or nuts. There are really great with a little bit of jam and a Greek cafe frappe. I do long to have time again to bake and day dream.

Courgette treat

Monday isn’t my favourite day. Going back to work with a cold, being so tired and knowing that I’m late in my work, that I should have worked the week-end too, that I’ll need to hurry…I’m so happy I took time to prepare this little bento Sunday to warm my heart up with good homemade food. And this bento has a new item which is truly great eaten cold also: courgette slices seasoned with soya sauce, rice vinegar and to which I tossed in some homemade furitake. Tomorrow will be easier, it’s Tuesday.

Bento content
Sesame cookies
Banana and coco jelly (lemon for the colour)
Humous
-Cauliflower and carrot sticks
-Onigri
Thin seitan slices breaded with okara and miso
-Kiwi slices
-Lettuce

So happy, I’m back cooking again on a daily basis. Bear is too! This bento is full of little things I missed these last days: homemade cookies, jelly, houmous, rice and raw vegetables and fruits.
It’s stupid but humus isn’t something common in France. I mean you cannot go in any shop and find can of houmous. Unfortunatly. And jelly is just unavailable and I tend to avoid mousses because of gelatine.
So back at home, with very little time and just blended a banana and add coco flakes a little lemon to prevent the banana to turn brown and agar-agar. And here you are!
As I told you yesterday, I wanted a to add a little more flavour to my ham. How? Well, I played with the breading. As usual I headed towards my okara box better than bread crumbs and looked for miso and spices! The result was really great!
And today’s treat were these little cookies mostly made out of sesame and maple syrup.

Lemon jelly and potato and chick-pea roesti

Bento
Lemon jelly
Potato roesti
-Lettuce
-Carrot sliced cooked and carrot salad
Cabbage yoghurt salad

I believe you have understood that lately, I’m stressed out, and that I have really few time to prepare meal or our bento lunches. So yesterday evening I quickly prepare some lemon jelly with agar-agar. It takes something like 3 minutes to prepare and then, I just have to let it set in the fridge.
It’s the same with these potato and chick-pea roesti. Quickly made and so tasty cold thanks to the garlic.
The cooked carrot slices were just some leftovers and so was the cabbage salad.
This bento asked for less than 10 minutes to put together and was really tasty.
