This bento was inspired by the beautiful lunches made by Babykins at her very fun and colorful blog, Soul, Soup, Soap. I love the cozy and inviting look of her bento meals and am excited that she has started sharing recipes for her yummy dishes. I had to try this delicious and seasonal mushroom preparation, and it was sooo good! I used Enoki, maitake, and chanterelles to make this recipe.
I've followed Babykin's soft and vibrant bento palette with fresh greens and pink crab tossed in a light ginger dressing with scallions...
Radish sprouts, mixed rice with daikon radish seeds, green peas, hard-boiled egg, and accents of avocado and decorative wheat gluten "fu" are in the bento, too. For dessert, crisp green apple, clementine and a sweet Japanese candy.

Happy cooking, friends!
