My friend StL did all the travel to our place to say hello. And she even came with a present : a sandwich sealer. So I think the least I could do to thank her was to publish Bear’s bento. Thank you so much! For those of you who don’t have it one solution can be to use the flat part of the blade of knife to seal it.

A French version is available here.

Bento (Bear’s)
Olive and tomato cake
-Tup of mayonnaise
-Two steamed onigris stuffed with spread cream and sprouts (nori)
-Lentils sprouts
-Carrot sliced
-Mushroom sliced
-Quarter of apple

I don’t now how many photos I tried to take of my Mamie’s olive and tomato cake (my French Granny). So this is my last shot, it’s not good and doesn’t seems as yummy as it should. But I’m fed up of trying, I did everything I could possibly think of. So here you are with Bear’s favourite salty cake. With some little items to highlight it.

A French translation is avalaible here.

Sprouts bento

Bento content
-Vegetables dumplings
-Sandwich: lens spread, sprouts
-Pear, nectarine, oats, honey.

This bento was enjoyed even more because it was shared with non-vegetarians who were completely charmed by these different flavours. I just enjoy this lens spread. I just added some sprouts in some home-made loaf of bread.

Vegetarian sandwiches

Bento content:
-Vegetarian sandwiches: sprouts, tomatoes, hummus, green peppers, pickles,
-Pudding: oats, orange apple slices, grape and yoghurt.

Lately I had a new caprice: germinate seeds. Sprouts have so many healthly properties that I couldn’t resist a try.
But somehow I had to find some recipes to use them!
As I told you those days are quite uneasy for cooking as I don’t always have access to a proper kitchen, or do not have my own tools…
not only the fancy ones, just any tool.
So to germinate those seeds (here fenugreek, radish and lens) I’ve used a plate with a piece of material that I would water twice a day
(don’t forget that before germination these seeds need a twelve hour soaking in cool water). It takes something like four to five days, but what an enjoying
idea. When I was a kid we would only germinate watercress, and the sprouts would make hair to our head-eggshells.

For my first try, I just included them in a vegetarian sandwich. I was a bit sceptical about the vegetarian spread: hummus, but this was before I tasted it!
I’m just totally fond of these vegetarian spreads made of carrots, mushrooms, lens, onions…
So this sandwich is stuffed with hummus, tomatoes, pickles, and sprouts and roasted green peppers.

I hope I’ll be forgiven for all the trouble I’ve encountered lately for posting. Here, it’s a real fuss to upload a photo!
I hope things will get easier in a few days!
