Inarizushi Bento


Inarizushi (Cooked Fried Tofu with Sushi Rice)

I really enjoy Inarizushi (aka Yubu Chobap) in my bento. It’s very easy and quick to make if you use the store-bought vacuum-packed pouches. The pouches are stuffed with sushi rice, either plain, or mixed with other ingredients. Some of my favorite things to mix in are seasoned ground beef, burdock, and carrots. I kept the ones in this bento plain with sprinklings of black toasted sesame seeds since the bento already included savory mini sausages mixed in ketchup.

I also experimented with a technique of creating a little character out of hard boiled eggs, as seen on other bento inspirations. I used some of the leftover quail eggs from my last bento, toasted black sesame seeds, and dabs of Sriracha sauce to create several of these mini egg creatures.

I had enough quail egg creatures and mini sausages to make an extra bento for my sister:

The two bentos are shown here with matching bento bands:
