Playful Bento Vegetables

This colourful & fun vegetable dish is an ideal accompaniment to my last Bento. Boring greens no longer have to be plain; adding colours & patterns bring life to the recipe. Kids will certainly adore this healthy dish cooked with shrimps.

Recipe Featured @ PtitChef as 'Starter of the Day!'

50g Broccoli
½ Carrot
3 slices of Ginger (optional)
Handful of Shrimps (shelled)
1 tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp minced Garlic
2 tsp Butter

  1. Wash & cut vegetables into desired shapes using cutters.
  2. Heat oil & sautéed ginger & garlic.
  3. Add butter & shrimps. Throw in vegetables, mix well & cover pan. Let food sit for about 1-2 mins & you’re ready to serve!
