I really admire the art of bento boxes. People make such an effort making the cutest lunches and I wish I would have such vegetable cutting skills. I bought some rice moulds in animal and other shapes, and wanted to make a nice lunch for my partner and I. This is my first attempt using the moulds, but I'm sure there will be many more as it was a lot of fun.
I served the rice onigiri with fresh vegetables and a soy-chilli-mirin-sesameseed oil sauce. It was a tasty and filling lunch and brought a smile to my face in the middle of a hectic working day.
