Wordless Wednesday {linky}: Family Obento Ideas - Buta Kimchi & Sekihan | Week 21



 What's in my obento this week? 
Buta Kimchi with Sekihan {赤飯, red beans rice} in a Hello Kitty lunchbox.

And yes, that's a piece of raw garlic. I like to have that with my rice.
A little stinky, but it adds some "kick'!
Raw garlic is also said to be beneficial to your health as when crushed or chopped,
it produces Allicin which is cancer-preventing.

Obento {お弁当} is a home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine and doesn't always need to be complicated or time-consuming. I hope to inspire you to create delicious, everyday obento meals for your family with these simple ideas and tools.

These photos are part of the 52 Weeks Family Obento Ideas series.

I love garlic, but never eat it raw. It tastes too bitter to me that way. I do love to mince and crush and saute it in a lot of my dishes though!

David said...

Love the container!!

Red bean rice sounds good. Load on the garlic.
