Tumbler Lunch (Three-Colored Soboro Bento) - Video Recipe

Using a tumbler as a bento box is popular among young people in Japan. My darling found this trend in the newspaper and asked me to make one for him.

So, in this video I will show you some of the easy bento ideas that you might what to try in a busy morning :D

Make sure you don't pack the foods that easily spoil! And when the weather is hot, please keep it in the fridge. Do not microwave the tumbler, of course.

I hope you enjoy it!!!

Tumbler Lunch (Three-Colored Soboro Bento)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 1

((Chicken Soboro))
75g (2.5oz.) ground chicken
* 1/2 tbsp. sake
* 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
* 1/2 tsp. sugar
* 1/2 tsp. grated ginger
((Scrambled Eggs))
1 egg
* 1 tbsp. milk or soy milk
* 1/2 tsp. sugar
* salt and cracked black pepper
sesame oil
((Marinated Green Beans))
60g (2.1oz.) frozen green beans
* 1/2 tsp. soy sauce
* 1/2 tbsp. Katsuobushi (bonito flakes)
1 serving steamed white rice

((Chicken Soboro))
Mix A in ground chicken. Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium-low and add the chicken. Stir constantly with chopsticks until it is crumbled, and let simmer until the liquid is almost gone.
((Scrambled Eggs))
Mix B in egg. Heat sesame oil in the pan on medium-low heat and scramble the egg finely with chopsticks.
((Marinated Green Beans))
Cut green beans diagonally when they're about half defrosted. Then put in the pan and cook and defrost them. Turn off the heat and season with C.

Put steamed rice and side dishes alternately in a tumbler.


Use a parfait spoon to eat, if you have.
If not, you can use a regular spoon, fork, or chopsticks that can reach to the bottom of your tumbler.

I used a triple frying pan but you can use any pan (cook one by one).
I won the triple frying pan at the sweepstakes ;)
