beginning bento again
Top: greens version 2, tuna, cilantro hot sauce, pickles, and cold soba with ponzu.
Bottom: greens version 1, roasted veggies, and baked apples.
Greens version 1 are a more Mediterranean style with olive oil and raspberry vinegar. Greens version 2 are more Thai/Indo inspired using olive oil, fish sauce and sambal terasi. Both are pretty tasty, though version 2 would have benefited from sesame oil.
The cilantro hot sauce is a riff on the sauce recipe of approximately the same name in South American Table. I had a ton of cilantro hanging around, so I figured what the heck and made it. Pretty tasty, somewhat akin to a very cilantro-y salsa verde.
