Tiffin Tuesday: Pita bento

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Posted by jokergirl@wererabbits

Small pitas stuffed with rucola, fried eggplant and zucchini slices, yellow bell pepper, some ajvar and an aioli-yoghurt dip.
Some more rucola, peppers and a cherry tomato for a salad with a fishy of balsamic vinegar as dressing.
The cup holds frozen raspberries and chocolate covered coffee beans.

BF gets the same, with one more pita (I was still hungry when I stuffed the boxes - I ate my fourth!).

The boxes used here are lunch boxes of the brand Curver - I always associate the brand with somewhat bigger storage containers and trash cans (!) but the boxes caught my eye at the supermarket. The lid is white with locking flaps and grey rubber inserts for isolation and leak protection. It has a microwave steam opening in the lid, protected by the same material. With its somewhat larger size of 700ml, it fits European bento-hunger rather well!
I don't usually have clear see-through boxes, but if you can't find a bento box or are afraid of the small sizes, this is a perfect box to start with. Flat for perfect food presentation, leakproof and microwaveable.

I bought it in a Japanese food store. In the US, Daiso might have one, otherwise look in places like JList or eBay for bento supplies.

i love vegetable sandwiches like these. the ajvar and aoli dip add powerful flavor to the veggies and i can really taste the aromas here.

I agree about curver i too always thought of them as bigger storage containers but I like this one. have to see if i can get one similar here.
