Flat vegetable flowers are great for dressing up your bento to finish up.
Put them on broccoli, on rice, on sandwiches, etc… anywhere you want. It adds a nice finishing touch and will definitely cutify your bento.

When I made my first Totoro bento, I used bonito flakes for his gray body color, but it didn’t look quite right. And I thought, “What food is gray?” The first food that came to my mind was konnyaku. I searched web for “Totoro made out of konnyaku”, but to my surprise I couldn’t find anyone using konnyaku for Totoro… so of course, I had to try it.
