Today's bento is Pikachu themed. He is made from a scrambled egg, with nori details. The rosy cheeks are ketchup. Underneath him is my first attempt at vegetable fried rice. It is fairly easy, but I find my version bland. I used pre-cooked Trader Joe's brown rice, scallions, asparagus, carrots, peppers, and soy sauce. This is also my first attempt at fresh spring rolls. I thinly sliced pepper, scallion, cucumber, carrot, and cabbage. I then rolled them in rice paper sheets. Under the dog divider is peanut dipping sauce. Edamame and tomatoes included as accents.
I think Pikachu came out fairly cute, but I wish I got the egg more scrambled because the white spots detract from the image.
