Bento Honeydew Bunnies Mapo Tofu Tutorial

Yesterday, I have written a post on one of the bentos I made some time back but forgot to mention here. This is a step-by-step tutorial on how I arrange the Bento. Enjoy!

Bento Mapo Tofu with Honeydew Bunnies and Nectarine

Step 1: Mold the rice into some sort of semi-circle. I used an ordinary rice paddle here.

Step 2: Fry the tofu with Mapo paste and fry the omelette in a seperate pan if possible.

Step 3: Place the omelette around the rice and pour in the tofu mixture into the rest of the space.
Add in a few pieces of nori seaweed and viola!

Since I know that I'll be adding in the top tier of the bento box, I did an additional step. I felt as though I was a little neurotic doing it, but I guess I was just lazy and didn't want to do so much cleaning around the bottom groves of the upper tier.

This is how I made the Cat Face bento with simple ingredients like rice, tofu and omelette. Hope you like it!


Thank you for leaving me a comment. It will be appearing shortly.
