"An empty belly is the best cook."

greetings, earth!

FOOD USED:
RICE
2 QUAIL EGGS
TOFU
EGG SHEET 
MINCED MEAT
FISH TOFU SQUARES
ASPARAGUS
CARROT
SEAWEED
ASSORTED SESAME TOPPERS






This piece was inspired by one of my favourite animated movies of all time (next to Spirited Away, Despicable Me, Wreck-it Ralph, Up, Finding Nemo... wow there's actually quite a few). But, it's not often you can find a modern post-apocalyptic movie... delightful :) ...or is Warm Bodies a close one? I haven't seen it to know.

Wall-E is a simple empty robot at first glance, but fills you with wonder and love as he collects invaluable items the human world left aside, and of course, meets Eve. He's a hidden treasure! I wrapped minced meat in an egg sheet to form Wall-E's body and some remaining bits for his arms. Tofu is a different white from the rice so I shaped them into eyes and claws using a toothpick to imitate the screws in his binocular eyes. Eve's eyes were tricky because I wanted to imitate the glow using the shading of sliced asparagus - didn't have blue food material - nts. consider using food coloured tofu next time or something...

I fell in love with making bentos because it's easy to achieve a balanced meal with its small parts, and not waste meal leftovers - in fact, the more the better variety! ;)
This idea was adapted from Anna the Red :

& I made the bento my own (since I didn't have certain materials) as lunch for him :)

Toughest part? Seaweed tire treads - she shaped those tires so well!
Best part? Eve the quail egg

Bon Appetit!
