Today’s Lunch Box/Bento (’11/32): Italian Sushi Roll bento!

The Missus, getting more and more used to her new kitchen (same size, but more open and practical) went into sushi mode today!
As said yesterday, nothing really complicated yet, but some of my favorites creeping back into the recipe!

I called these sushi rolls “Italian” for the simple reason that they are wrapped in Trevise!
The Missus first prepared sushi rice and added some black sesame seeds to it.
She then made the rolls with freshly chopped avocado, walnuts, and “kanikama/surimi” and finally wrapped them in Trevise cabbage leaves.
The home-made pickles are mini-melons coming from local musk melon farms to which she added her own pickled Japanese pepper/sanshyou.
The taste of the latter is very zippy!

Now, for the side dish:
My favorite, tamagoyaki/Japanese omelette containing boiled black beans!
Home-pickled cucumber and mini tomatoes salad.
Yellow kiwi fruit (dessert!).
Celeri leaves.

Once again vey nourishing and colorful!

  1. The glowing purple is almost unreal (I though at first it was decorative paper). As for the walnut in avocado rolls… Hmmm, both give me ideas. I make maki practically once a week, it’s one of my favourite meals, but they are of course not as perfect nor beautiful as the ones in your bentos! I might borrow some of your wife’s incredible ideas. (I can forget tamagoyaki though, I don’t have the special pan).
