Vegetarian Chik'N Nuggets Bento

So I have another Vegetarian Bento for you today. (surprise surprise lol) This one is made with Morningstar (quickly becoming one of my favorite brands) Chik'N Nuggets. I hadn't tried these yet, but I've had their Buffalo Wings as well as their Chik Patties, and I loved both of those, so I got the Nuggets this time.
And boy was I happy, they were delicious in this bento.
This is my fiance's bento, packed in one of my 2 tiered piggy bento boxes. It also features my famous Black Bean Corn Salsa! I love making (and eating) this salsa!
  • Blue Corn Tortilla Chips
  • Black Bean Corn Salsa
  • Baby Carrots
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Celery
  • Morningstar Chik'N Nuggets
  • Small Container of Light Ranch Dressing
And here is my bento, packed in my other 2 tiered piggy bento box. This is the one that is shaped like the piggy face, but I was silly and forgot to put the covers in the pictures, so you don't actually get to see the cute piggies. But if you want to see what the containers look like check them out Here!
I have all the same things packed in my bento except I have a bit of Lettuce as well as BBQ sauce instead of ranch dressing.
Yummy! This was certainly one of my favorite bentos this year. It's funny though, I didn't like chicken nuggets too much as a kid. I loved chicken tenders (chicken fingers), but I didn't really like nuggets or patties at all. Maybe it was the texture or the fact that you couldn't tell what part of the meat was in it, but for some reason I LOVE these Vegetarian Chik'N Nuggets and patties soooo much. I love the texture and the flavor, and there is no problem with it being mystery meat.... because there is no meat at all. lol I guess I'm just silly like that.


  1. You're SUPER silly like that. And adorable. ^_^ <3!

  2. Ooo! I always wondered how those things tasted! Are they too "tofu-y?"

  3. Thanks lol!

    Alysse, They taste like chicken (literally) they have the same texture and flavor as chicken nuggets, but they don't leave you feeling greasy or sick after you eat them like real chicken nuggets do.
    Kellie (the avid meat eater) loves them, and even said she'd not have to eat meat again as long as she had food from Morningstar.

  4. I found your blog via What's for Lunch at BentoLunch.net. I just made the decision to start serving Bento lunches to my daughter and I have lots to learn. I'll be visiting lots of blogs! I thought Bentos were for kids, but I am quickly learning they are for all ages!!

  5. Welcome to the world of bentoing. Bentos can be for anyone and everyone, but I think the cute ones started out just for kids while adults had more plain looking ones (That's changed a lot though as I've seen a ton of super cute bentos for adults). I personally love bentos, and I think I'll be making them (both cute and plain) for a long time.
