After yesterday’s very labor intensive bento, I just wanted a very easy lunch that I could throw together in the morning with minimal fuss.
Therefore today baby A. got an easy sandwich bento. The sandwich is made of brioche bread, home made hummus, ham and lettuce. I used a cutter to turn into a cute little piggie. As a side I made mini sausage “octopi” and just threw some berries in the container and called it a day.
The hummus is what took the longest out of everything, and I threw that together fairly quickly the night before. I found these cute little cans of chickpeas that are perfect for making a smaller portion of hummus. I also made a very simple recipe since it was for a five year old, here it is:
– 1 8oz can of garbanzo beans
– 2 Tbsp of tahini
– 2 garlic cloves
– The juice of half a lemon
– 1 green onion
– salt and pepper
Blend all of the above in a food processor, add water until you reach the consistency you like. Store in the fridge and it will last you quite a few days.
Here is what her lunch looked like all packed up:
That was all I did for this one. Honestly I am just ready for the weekend, this whole waking with the sun thing is not for me (I might be allergic O_o).
