Hearty Jook and Homemade Pickles Bento by Demi-Plum Hearty Jook and Homemade Pickles Bento by Demi-Plum
I have been very sick for over a week now and I decided that since I'm going to see Shen Yun tonight I need all the strength and body cleansing I can get! It doesn't hurt that it goes along with the theme either haha. Jook (Korean, congee in Chinese or rice porridge in Japanese) is a food that Asian Cultures eat for breakfast or when they are feeling ill. It's nourishing and delicious and can be eaten with a variety of condiments. I have paired my jook today with some homemade pickles. I used Harumi Kurihara's recipes. I am a big fan of Kurihara-san's and I just love her recipes. Anyway enough blabber, here is what is in this bento!:

Jook:
Boiled Red Beans
Baked Turkey
Sauteed Mushrooms
Chives
Cilantro
Sesame Seeds

*Condiment I will add is Shoyu*

Pickles (What is Pickled):
Cucumber
Ginger

I hope you all are doing better than I. I am looking forward very much to this bento! Ittadakimasu!

Haha pickles are actually very good for you. I was never very interested in pickles as a child, but I only ever really had dill and gherkins. The older I get the more I appreciate picking, but asian style pickling. I love asian pickles, they are delicious!

Thank you :huggle: I hope so too. I'm tired of being so sick!

Haha I was never a fan of those myself >w<

Yes they really are amazing! Actually you only have to pickle them for a couple of hours even which is amazing.

I never thought about shapes! Oh my gosh the possibilities!
