Black sesame seed bento

Left to right: Steamed peas, hello kitty soy sauce container, cherry tomato, sesame carrots with black sesame seeds, jasmine rice with black sesame seed circle.

A very simple bento that was easy to make and took very little time. The black sesame seeds are a favorite of mine both for taste and for looks. They do really taste a lot different from white sesame seeds - I can't explain how exactly, but they do!

I haven't yet took a spoon of black sesame and taste it. I should try. I mix it with rice too.

It's fun to try old recipes using black sesame seeds instead of white. I also like to use them as a coating for cheese balls!
