Now, why did I call this bentoGyoza meat sauce bento”? There is no gyoza included, right?
Actually, the Missus helped herself with unused gyoza filling made the previous day!

</a

She steamed plain rice before filling the main box with it.
She then topped part of the rice with boiled carrots and green cauliflower (cauliflower, not romanesco or broccoli!).
I wonder what flag colors it would represent?

Don’t ask about the recipe, I just don’t know!
The Missus fried the gyoza filling left from overnight mixed with some tomato sauce before adding boiled taro/sato imo cut into pieces. Incidentally, the taro roots were boiled by your servant as the Missus does not care much for them! They were also leftovers!
Having fried the lot, she poured it over the rice and sprinkled it with plenty of black sesame seeds.

The side dish was both beautiful and healthy!
Boiled rape flowers/na no hana seasoned with gomadare/sesame dressing.
Lotus root slices fried with yuzu koshio. Very piquant!
Yama imo/Japanese yam pickled with amazu and red cucumber pickles.
Boiled black beans.

Very solid, healthy and yummy!
