Lunch bento box with Gyoza, tomato, broccoli, Tamagoyaki, Chikuwa cucumber, and Furikake rice. Healthy and Yummy Japanese lunchbox! 




  1. Fill up half of bento box with Japanese rice. Let it cool so that hot/warm rice will not warm up other cool food.
  2. Pan fry leftover gyoza or bake in a toaster oven until it's warm.
  3. Pack soy sauce in a sauce container (I bought in local Daiso. Check Amazon).
  4. Wash tomatoes and lettuce, and pat dry. Place nicely in the bento box along with broccoli.
  5. Pack cooled gyoza, Tamagoyaki and Chikuwa Cucumber.
  6. Sprinkle Furikake on top of slightly cooled rice.
  7. Cool down completely before closing the bento box.

Recipe Notes

Broccoli: How to freeze food for Bento, click here.

* Cook broccoli florets in microwave: Put 1-2 broccoli florets in a small microwave-safe bowl/container. Fill with water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for a minute or so until it's a little bit soft (or you can blanch it as well). Drain well and let it cool.

If you are using a thermal bento box like Thermos, you do not need to cool down before closing lunch box.

This lunch is for my 6-year-old son.
