It was one of those days when you wake up and the only things “immediately edible” are things from the freezer. I resorted to the frozen patties I made weeks ago and the last 4 frozen shrimps left in the bag. The grapes… I stole from my roommate’s groceries. I am sure he won’t notice.
In this bento: black bean patty with cheddar cheese & ketchup over a bed of greens, sautéed shrimps, rice with nori ebi furikake, and grapes. I like the vibrant colours and the resulting contrasts this time.
I learned about the black bean patties from a fellow Bento Lunches community member. You can find the recipe here (if you haven’t noticed, I really am clueless when it comes to inventing my own recipes). The shrimps are sautéed with a tiny bit of butter and seasoned with parsley, salt, and paprika.
