Pig Bento

Pig Bento

This is my third lunch using the CuteZcute cutter. Previously I made the Panda and Frog. Sometime in the future I will make the cat. I asked my 8 year old nephew to help me brainstorm how to make this lunch. He suggested a pig in mud (chocolate pudding). I loved the idea but decided on a savory version of mud – black beans and rice.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Vegetable: Carrots with Greek yogurt and honey

Mini Pigs: Apple cut in pig shapes with cinnamon

Pig: I used the CuteZcute cutter to cut the pig out of a tortilla. I coated it with cooking spray, sprinkled with paprika and broiled. The CuteZcute cutter is available at Bento USA by All Things For Sale and on Amazon.

Mud: Black beans and rice. I loosely followed this recipe but included a higher bean to rice ratio to make it look more like mud. I used 1 can of black beans instead of red beans, and did not include the green bell pepper, stock, and cilantro.
