Lion Bento

I had a Grilled Chicken Italian Sausage, Corn on the Cob, and Brown Rice Couscous leftover from dinner last night, and I was pondering how I could put them into a bento and make them cute. I wanted to do something with them that I haven't done before so I was looking up different animals I could make with sausages, but I wasn't having much luck. I was thinking of maybe doing a sun because I can the bright yellow corn on the cob that I could use... but then it hit me, I could make Lions.
I could make a big mane from the sausage, and I could make a smaller made using the corn on the cob. And then I decided to make onigiri with the brown rice couscous and turn that ino a lion as well. So I made a Lion Family!
  • Brown Rice Couscous (Garlic & Herb)
  • 1/4 Corn on the Cob
  • 2 Blackberries
  • 2 Cherries
  • Green Peas
  • Grilled Italian Chicken Sausage
  • 1/2 Cherry Tomato
  • Cheese and Black Foodsafe Marker details, and two chocolate sprinkles for eyes.
 I love how this came out. I don't know why I didn't try this before. This must be the King Lion.
And here are the smaller Lions. Maybe they are the Lionesses hunting the Giraffe and the Monkey.


  1. ..............Oh. My. CUTE. X.X Faces... So... freaking... ADORABLE!! AAAAAH! This is AWESOME! I love when you make little images and stuff! X-D

    1. Thank you. I thought this was a really cute bento as well. It took me a long time to make the faces, I guess it's because I don't really have anything to make the faces with. I need to get some Nori and Nori Punches or something.

  2. OMG THAT'S SO CUTE! Lion goes raaawrrrr. EHEHEHEHEHEHHEHEHEE!!!! ^_^

  3. Love the idea for the lions! So cute. :)
