Bento Box Ideas For Lunch?

boogiebaby | Jun 21, 2007 03:00 PM

I recently discovered the fun world of bento boxes. I've purchased several for myself, hubby and my 3 year old but I'm running out of ideas on what to pack. I don't want to limit myself to Asian food all the time. We're Indian, and I cook Indian food a couple times a week, so I've tried incorporating that too. I have mini soy sauce bottles and small cups for chilli sauce and ketchup. I also have rice molds to make fun shapes with rice. I'd love to find some egg molds and those little paper cups to hold fried foods.

Some lunches I've packed recently were:
Mini samosas with mint chutney, grapes, and sweet potato "fries"
PB&J cut into shapes, grape tomatoes, Fritos, and fruit salad (3YO's lunch)
Hainanese Chicken rice with chilli sauce, sliced cucumber and melon cubes
Mini chicken burgers, carrot sticks, cucumber spears, ranch dressing, and apple slices
Potstickers with dipping sauce, edamame, asian 'slaw', and almond jelly
