both of our bentos were packed in green boxes! purely coincidentally (it’s all that was clean heh heh). maybe it will bring us a little extra prosperity!?
steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots; pork gyoza with sauce bottle; salmon rice with nori
dessert: cherry cheesecake
clam donburi, stir fried mixed vegetables, pork gyoza with sauce
easiest gyoza sauce: 1 T soy sauce, 1 T rice vinegar, 2-3 drops of sesame oil
clam donburi is pretty easy. donburi is dishes where egg is cooked in a sweet watery sauce and served over rice. this is a variation of naomi kijima’s clam donburi. in my variation i used canned clam and green onions. she also has a bbq eel donburi that i’d love to try with bbq pork! japanese cooking is actually very affordable but you have to make substitutions for items that are cheap and readily available where you live.
salmon rice – also adapted from one of naomi kijima’s recipes (salmon cucumber rice). saute canned salmon and ginger in a frying pan, add hot cooked rice, remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. top with nori. he doesn’t like cucumber (except in cucumber salad) so i didn’t want to make the rice as per her recipe. the nori is my “green” substitution to ensure he gets his vitamins.
