Koi Pond Bento

yes, I know, people freak out when they see blue rice.....


Too many holiday obligations to make many bento's this month, but I've been thinking about this one for awhile.


The stones surrounding the pool are soy-braised button, bunashimeji (beech), and tiny enoki mushrooms. The Koi are kamaboko with red bell pepper and nori details. The pond is a thin layer of blue rice - underneath is plain old chicken fried rice. Not shown is a Carrot and Daikon side salad. Maybe I'll post that tomorrow :)
