Kindergarten bento – Tofu omelet (17/Nov/16)

Menu: Tofu omelet, Tori-soboro & veggies, Steamed cabbage, Salted cucumber slices, Rice with sesame furikake

Egg is a very handy ingredient for packed lunches. I always boil it or make omelet or scrambled egg out of it. I usually improvise with whatever there is in the fridge. Today’s omelet recipe is with healthy & nutritious tofu.

An egg with a bit of mashed tofu. No need to mash it completely, just mix it with egg with chopsticks or fork.For seasoning, I used a pinch of salt and this powdered nori seaweed called “Aonori.” It gives the egg a bit of sea flavour as well as good nutrients as also indicated in the package (high in protein, calcium and iron).

Add aonori like this,Cook it on a heated pan with a bit of cooking oil (very important to heat up the pan before pouring the egg mixture),Roll, roll, roll, and voila!
