Would you believe you can have a complete bento box full of snack foods and still eat healthy?
One of the harder parts of packing a bento is: how do I make my loved ones eat their veggies?
The answer: dip dip hooray! From guacamole to hummus to - in this case - peanut sauce - a tasty dip makes veggies even more attractive! I had some leftover peanut sauce in the fridge (you can find a recipe here - the surrounding text is German but the actual recipe in English - this makes a lot and I usually scale it down using a 250 g jar of organic peanut butter).
There is red bell pepper, cucumber and carrot in the box, a dollop of the peanut dip (well I admit: and a small Japanese banana-flavored candy). Plus rice crackers with seaweed, nuts, mango cubes, cherries, a French snacking salami for protein, and an (organic) apple. Napkin optional.
Prep time: 5 Mintes for cutting the vegetables into sticks, and packing.
