Yesterday I made tabule. I had made tabouleh starting from a pre-made mix some weeks ago and was not very satisfied with the result. So this time I made it from scratch and have to say it didn’t took much longer than with the pre-made mix. Also when you do it yourself you can adjust the quantities of seasoning to fit your taste, which for me is much less parsley, somewhat more lemon.
Also I gave it a try to shape the tabule into those cue shapes you see in bento boxes and it worked quite well! As you know I went to San Francisco last week and I stopped by in Japan town, and I saw bentos and all the equipment to cut vegetables, mold rice, shape eggs and so on. And I fell in love! I have been checking out bento boxes and bento box blogs for the past 3 days and now I really want a bento box and I really want to start bento-ing…. Not sure if it will go anywhere, but right now I am kind of obsessed!
Anyone has some adventure in bento making to share or some advice to get started?
