Meatless Monday Bento

Posted on October 25, 2011 by Debra

Tofu again!  Hey, it’s my “go-to” protein.    Quick, easy and absorbs any flavor that you throw at it.

This time…hoisin sauce.  I found a very nice vegetarian type and tossed it with baby bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, onions, fried tofu cubes then simmered until tender.

Brown rice topped with furikake with a slice of takuan.   Takuan (takuwan), pickled daikon, is risky for the work environment.  It’s very stinky.  He hasn’t mentioned it but I’ll have to ask Saba Man if his co-workers have commented on his odorous lunches.   I’ll let you know his answer.

    I adore baby bok choy and would steal that bento in a heartbeat!
    Does Saba Man eat in a community area? At my work, in the kitchen/lunch area, anything goes.

  2. sheri says:

    I think one slice of takuan should be inoffensive enough, especially if he chews with his mouth closed!
    Looks super tasty.

  3. Looks so savory and energizing! Love the sunny slice of takuan…
