Hubby is not a vegan, or a vegetarian, but he doesn’t like dairy, so if I make him a meatless bento, by default it’s vegan. Here he has a container of chili, with a lettuce leaf to somewhat contain the sauce, brown rice, veggies, and black olives. He doesn’t like to heat up bentos (he’s one of those people who can eat leftovers right out of the fridge, too), so he’s quite content to have everything in one layer to ‘graze’ on through his workday.
It’s nice to share the occasional vegan bento for hubby, but I am comfortable in my decision to keep this blog vegetarian, so I don’t feel this desire to blog all 3 lunches for our family every day. It’s not just me who gets tasty bento lunches ’round here!
