Morrocan Feast Bentos

All bentos: Couscous and morrocan veggie stew in one tier & morrocan marinated tofu triangles, morrocan spice tofu bites wrapped with carrot strings, & baby tomatoes in second tier. (except for my daughter's bento which is all in one tier)

The Morrocan stew included carrots, onions, zucchini and raisins, yum! The tofu bites were a complete spur of the moment experiment involving extra firm tofu, silken tofu, flour, water, carrots, onions & spices made into a really thick batter then rolled in Panko and shallow fried. They were excellent! All three of us liked them a whole lot, so it's a perfect score experiment :)

My daughter's bento is one that we picked up on our trip to India. I found it in a large bin at the RelianceFresh supermarket which was labeled 'lunch box' so I grabbed two. Later I realized that the bags they were wrapped in were labeled as 'pencil box', but decided to use them as bentos anyway. They work really well and my daughter loves them. Even have a perfect place for utensils or pocky on top just like many bento boxes do!

Pocky sticks on top...interesting.

Nice pencil box! Maybe the lunchbox label was correct and the packaging label was wrong. Either way it works :)
