After a few weeks of charaben, we’re back to a sensible everyday bento for this week’s Great Bento Idea. That doesn’t mean it’s not attractive and colorful though!
This is from Gnoe, a Dutch bentoist who blogs at Graasland in both English and Dutch. She’s a lacto-ovo vegetarian, and keeps detailed records of her weekly menus on her site - a great help for anyone who wants to follow her eating style. The featured bento here - a lacto-ovo-vegetarian one of course - is Middle Eastern inspired, and has plenty of color, to as Gnoe says “keep the dark November days back”. The red beet hummus looks really interesting. There’s even a cute mini-Babybel cheese character in the back! Read more about this bento on Graasland.

(If you want your idea to catch my eye by the way, the best way is to join the Just Bento or Just Bento Bento Gear groups on Flickr and post them there. Don’t forget to post a link to your blog in the description if you have one.)
