Quick Thursday Bento

I was pressed for time this morning, so pulled together a bento using leftover stuffed mushrooms from earlier in the week, salad leaves and some of my frozen rice stash.

Halloumi-stuffed mushroom bento

It’s summer! This colourful salad is quick and easy to prepare – the little panda pot holds the salad dressing.

Halloumi-stuffed mushrooms (serves 2)

4 x large flat mushrooms

60g halloumi, diced

1 sprig parsley

1 clove garlic, crushed

Juice of half a lemon

25g breadcrumbs

salt and pepper

2 tsp olive oil

Heat your oven to 180C. Brush the mushrooms lightly with the oil and place on a baking tray. Combine the breadcrumbs, parsley, halloumi, garlic, lemon juice and seasonings in a bowl until well-combined. Use the mixture to stuff the mushrooms and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the halloumi is caramelised. Serve however you like – in this photo I have added a salad of cucumber and cherry tomatoes tossed with garlic, gem lettuce leaves and a lemon juice and parsley dressing. You could also use it for a bento with rice and stir fried veg.
