- teriyaki-style chicken.
- long grain white rice.
- sliced almonds and seaweed for the eyes
- Carrots & Edamame for the veggies.
We didn;t have any teriyaki sauce so we made our own sauce using 'Grade A' maple syrup, low-sodium soy sauce and some sweet chili paste. It tastes soooo delicious. I don't think we'll every buy teriyaki sauce again!
I shaped the rice with a star shaped silicone baking mold. If you want to color the rice yellow for a more authentic Mario feel, try a yellow curry or tarragon powdered spice. I usually keep a jar of the expired stuff around (less flavor) but decided to skip this step to save on time and cleanup.

I feel so inspired to make bentos again. I suppose that means I'll have to go grocery shopping again soon. Most of the foods we've been keeping in the house lately parish too quickly for a bento-style lunch.
