Hubby Bento #11 – His & Her Open Grilled Vegetables Sandwiches

His & Her  Sandwich

I fell in love with grilled vegetables sandwich recently during my no meat diet last month. They are packed with enough wonderful  flavours to excite my crazy tastebuds. (≥ω≤∴”⊃

So today I tried making them for myself and for my husband’s bento.  There are so many vegetarian ingredients to choose from to put into this sandwich, but the one single ingredient that stood out on my list is Gorgonzola cheese. I know its not a vegetable, but it goes very well with them! For this sandwich, I picked vegetables that go best with this cheese and sour dough bread:

Grill with a little salt for 4 minutes on each side and brush a little balsamic vinegar on both sides and grill for 1 minute

Portobello Mushroom
Slice and grill with a little salt, cracked pepper and balsamic vinegar until cooked.

Gorgonzola Dolce & Semi dried tomatoes
Melt the cheese and release the tomatoes flavour on the grilled zucchini slices in the oven for a minute

Sautéed onions with cherry port sauce (left-over from Hubby Bento #9)

Curly lettuce


I made some Marmite wings too for my husband because he needs MEAT in his meal. The marmite wings are pretty easy to make:

10-12 Marmite wings

Marinate Ingredients
1 knob of Grated ginger, 3 to 4 garlic grated, 2 tablespoons marmite, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 to 2 tablespoons sake, 1-2 tablespoons mirin, salt and pepper,

For Frying ingredients
Equal parts of rice flour and cake four

Marinate the wings overnight.  The next day, coat the wings lightly in the mixed flour. Heat enough oil and fry the wings until golden brown.

Here’s a little amateurish doodle of the sandwich last night for ideas. I have not drawn for more than a decade, so I borrowed my older son’s pencils to try. It was fun and meditative. (=^x^=)

Hi, I have been making bento lunch boxes for my toddler son for a year. Its a challenge everyday to think of new bento ideas to excite him. The creations are endless and took a lot of trial and errors. But most importantly, his bento lunches must deliver 3 key goals: exciting presentation (eye appeal), exciting tastes (texture & ingredients) and exciting adventures (dare to try; food play). Recently, I started making my husband lunch bentos too for work after he got envious of seeing beautiful bentos prepared by Japanese wives on Japanese TV network. I am learning and picking up skills from many talented bento makers everyday to improve myself. Here are some of my creations I would like to share with you. Apart from bentos, there some travel stories and little things i enjoy doing related to food and culture in this blog. So enjoy and share your thoughts with me.
