Outer Space Bento Meals

I made this meal for my friend Deborah on an evening we ate dinner in her garden. When I asked for theme ideas, she said planets/space. I enjoyed using my Saturn cookie cutter for the first time.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Saturn – sweet potato cut with a cookie cutter then roasted, black beans, corn, tomato, lime vinaigrette

Top Right: Stars – radish cut with a mini cutter, olive tapenade (I didn’t use the capers and used ordinary black olives)

Bottom Right: Blackberries and pistachios

Mini Dippers: Stars – flour tortilla cut with a cookie cutter, brush tortilla stars with olive oil, place on cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp.

I made this spaceship meal for myself with the same ingredients as the planet bento for Deborah. Most of the friends I showed this photo to did not know what it is supposed to be.
