It’s Tuesday and we are 40% through the work week. 🙂 Hope everyone is having a great week so far.
Here are some Totoro food art which I have made, but yet to blog about.
Firstly is Totoro soba, this is what I would call a classic piece as many bento bloggers have made this before. I love Totoro and love soba, so thought I would make one for a simple meal. Totoro’s tummy is made of white egg sheet, and I added some tsuyu for dipping, and some cherries to snack on thereafter.
I have also made Totoro soba in a jar. Chibi Totoro is cut out from a hard boiled egg, and I added some teriyaki beef meatballs for the soot spirits.
Below is a Totoro meat soboro bento, with scrambled egg whites to create Totoro’s tummy. The soot spirits are little rice balls wrapped with nori. I really love meat soboro bentos as they are so yummy!
Lastly, here is Totoro made from a meat patty. I tried to melt the cheese for his tummy by gently steaming the cheese topped patty, however I couldn’t achieve those gooey melted cheese on burgers I’ve had when we dine out. His whiskers are toasted dry spaghetti sticks. Served this with linguine for another yummy meal.
