Ghost Onigiri ( rice ball) Bento

Pin It Now!
This is another Halloween bento I made for Aaron last week.

There are only 3 items in this bento. In the muffin cup are tomatoes from our back yard; the chicken drumstick is leftover from the night before; a plain rice ball. A simple lunch that contains veggie, protein and carbs!

Here is how I made the rice ball:

Put rice on a piece of food film.

Hold the rice together

Shape it

Finally, I use seaweed to decorate it into a vampire looking ghost. Pretty easy, huh!
You can also made the rice ball like this with your bare hands. Prepare a bowl of water or salt water on the side to wet your hands. This helps to keep the rice from sticking :D

  3. We are just learning how to make bento lunches, my little grandson is loving it. We really like the concept of the bento and he seems to enjoy his lunches a bit more.
    I am not sure we are up to rice yet, but I am sure it will come with time.

  4. Thank you for coming back ^,^ Packing bento is fun, don't you think? It takes time to practice though.
