Hinamatsuri Bento

Girls Day Bento

I will be in Japan for Hinamatsuri (Girl’s Day) this year. I made this in advance for my 15 year old niece. She helped place the black sesame seeds on the radish flowers and said that she prefers my more traditional bento. I enjoy making them but I need more practice. I pretty much copied this bento made by Mahiro Mama.

Container: ECO Lunchboxes

Emperor and Empress: Cooked Nishiki rice molded into shape with plastic-wrap. Hair and facial features (spinach), bodies (bell pepper), baton and fan (cheddar cheese), the empress has a crown pick in her head

Also in the box: Rice, carrot flowers, radish flowers with black sesame seeds, snow peas, strawberries, lettuce, and carrot
