Sunday Kitchen #145 Hinomaru Bento
Today I made a traditional Japanese meal called Hiromaru Bento.
The Japanese flag is called Hinomaru and a bento is a packed lunch.
To make Hinomaru Bento, first you need a plastic container. Preferably one with cute cartoon characters on it. But you can substitute a plain plastic container like this in a pinch.
Fill the container with rice using an instrument called a shamoji.
In the middle of the rice, place one umeboshi.
Put the lid on the container.
And then wait until lunch time and eat it with chopsticks.
