Lentil and Buckwheat Bento Box with Vegetables Recipe
Bento Boxes are the ultimate Japanese packed lunch. Try this delicious vegan version which combines wholesome lentils and nutty buckwheat with a soy sauce and tahini dressing
Prepare the lentils and buckwheat separately according to their pack instructions. Remove the seeds and pith from the pepper, wash the pepper and the courgette, and chop both into cubes. Trim and wash the celery. Cut into slices and fry together with the pepper and courgette in hot oil for approx. 5 minutes. Season the vegetables with 2 tbsp. soy sauce and remove from the pan.
Add 100 ml water, tahini paste and the remaining soy sauce to the frying liquid and reduce slightly. Wash the mint, chop finely, add to the sauce, season with lemon juice and pepper and pour into a screw-top jar for transportation.
Arrange all the meal components in a bento box/ lunchbox sprinkle with nuts and refrigerate until you are ready to take it with you. Heat up in the microwave before eating.
