Three Blue Birds bento

Ok, these birds don’t look very blue, as this was a batch of leftover rice that was re-steamed. This was the batch of rice I used in my Earth Day bento last week, where I used the liquid extracted from butterfly pea flowers to cook the rice. I decided to use up the rice to make these little plump birds (and clear out my fridge).

I made these birds to “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” instead of the 3 monkeys it originated from. These birds have pink wings made of kamaboko (Japanese fish cake) and I toasted some spaghetti strips as their head feathers. Their beaks are made of steamed carrots.

I was a little frustrated with this bento as I had to adjust the wings several times to get them in the right position, as a result of all the shifting the onigiri wasn’t as neat as I wanted it to be.

  1. So cute! You know one day it would be really cool if you could do a shot with all of your bento box making supplies and boxes and lids. I really need to upgrade my bento boxes as now I have hungry teenagers so need a really big one. Any suggestions on types or brands? Have a super week. Take Care, BAM

    • Most of my bento boxes are small ones to accomodate the kids, but if you need a large enough one you could take a look at Easy Lunchboxes. I don’t have any of those but I know many bloggers pack bentos for husbands in those, so it might accomodate your teens. Hope that helps 🙂

Leave a Note! I'll love to hear from you.
