Bento #01: Lazy leftovers
So here is a typical last minute leftovers bento. I used left over pasta to make a quick improvised Mediterranean pasta salad with red and yellow cherry tomatoes, mini mozzerella, basil and fried yellow courgettes from my garden.
I just love those yellow courgettes, their bright yellow for me just epitomises summer. This summer once again I am experiencing a true courgette harvest flood. One of my favourite recipes for courgettes is to make courgette "Pfannkuchen". They are somewhat more substantial than the light French crepes using more egg but without any baking soda that American pancakes do. They look really pretty when you use lots of grated green courgette, a generous amount of herbs de Provence and some fresh basil adding it withto the dough. Next time I make them I will take a picture for you. Plus they really taste good eaten cold straight out of the bento box.
As there is no end of courgettes in sight do you have an creative idea how to use courgettes for bentos?
