heart radish bento

Hi friends! This bento, packed for Jamison, was inspired by the heart-shaped radish I picked from the garden a couple of days ago. Spanakopita, a slice of turkey filled with hummus, scallion and flowering sage, Persian cucumbers, yogurt-garlic sauce and radish fill this apple green bento box, one I have not used for a while.
Speaking of apples, our Gravenstein apple tree is covered now with tiny green apples!

korean style stuffed pepper bento

Packed this bento for hubby, a big fan of Korean flavors! The bright yellow pepper is filled with a stir fry of ground turkey, Asian mushrooms, mini zucchini, red cabbage and Korean red pepper paste. Bright pink pickled ginger is a zippy garnish. Garden-grown shiso leaves are packed as wraps along with local apricots and cherries from the farmer's market.
Happy bentoing!
