Pan Fried Onigiri Bento

I had leftover rice and vegetables from my Vegetarian Bibimbap Bento, so I decided to make a bento today using the leftovers and making Onigiri.
This is pan fried onigiri, not Toasted Onigiri (Yaki Onigiri) because I took some of the leftover rice and shaped it into onigiri, then I pan fried each side with a little bit of non stick spry. (Yaki Onigiri is toasted in a hot pan and brushed with soy sauce, so I called this pan fried onigiri instead). The outside of the onigiri became toasted and crispy, while the inside became warm and fluffy. YUM! I actually made another pan friend onigiri after eating this because it was soooo good!

YUMMY!!!! I wish I could eat pan fried onigiri every day! I should really try making a pan fried onigiri with a filling inside as well.
 Here is the bottom tier of my bento:
  • Spinach
  • Bean Sprouts
  • Shredded Carrot
  • Shiitake Mushrooms
  • Zucchini
These vegetables were already sauteed, and I just had to reheat them and place them nicely into the bento box. I used chopsticks to make it look neater.
 Here is the top tier of my bento:
  • Pan Fried Onigiri
  • Small Tomato
  • Lettuce Leaf
 And I added a tiny bottle of Gluten Free Low Sodium Soy Sauce!
Here it is all packed up and ready for me to eat! And eat I did! YUM!
