The past two days were soup lunches for my daughter. Yesterday, she gave me a serious look, and said, “Mama. I want beets and gohan (rice).” I replied, with an equally serious look, “OK. We’ll be back to beets and gohan then.”
Today’s lunch included:
Steamed multi-grain rice (brown rice, barley, quinoa, millet, wheat berries) with kuro-gomashio or black sesame seed and’ salt
Roasted beets in heart shapes
Baked chicken drumsticks, seasoned with salt, pepper and a little squeeze of lemon
Blanched broccoli with katsuobushi and a drop of soy sauce
In a separate tupperware container, some blackberries were included to finish off the meal. Hopefully she enjoys her routine bento again!
