cali roll bento with mirin-roasted carrots

Hi guys! A quick and easy bento for a crazy busy day: store-bought California rolls, accented with arugula blossoms and a wasabi "leaf" and some yummy roasted baby carrots with exotic seasonings.
Roasted Carrots with Mirin, Aleppo Pepper and Shichimi Togarashi
In a foil-lined casserole, toss baby carrots with salt, Aleppo pepper, togarashi and mirin to taste.
Roast in a 400 degree oven until tender and sizzling. Enjoy--and just try to not devour them in one fell swoop!
Looking forward to the almost-arrived weekend--you too?
