korean chicken and soba stir fry bento

Enjoying early fall flavors with today's bento: sesame-oil tossed soba noodles with autumnal-colored veggies--purple cabbage, golden carrots and yellow pepper. Korean gochujang
  and ginger marinated chicken a delicious accompaniment. Nasturtium, society garlic blossom, Kadota fig and dahlia from our early fall garden reflect the vivid and beautiful range of nature's palette right now.

Happy Autumn!

chicken karaage bento

Simple and satisfying--Japanese-style fried chicken and potato salad for lunch. The karaage recipe, rich with ginger and soy sauce and satisfyingly crispy, came from the inspiring cookbook Tokyo Cult Recipes, a gorgeous book full of accessible, delicious recipes. Can't wait to cook my way through it! 

The purple and pale lavender larkspur photographed next to my bento are still blooming, weeks after they first started flowering.
