Bento #3 - Banana Sushi


So I was staring at the bananas this morning, debating how to use them up...then I remembered the flour tortillas in the pantry.

I'm a fan of peanut butter and banana sandwiches (toasted, yum!), so I figured I'd try this for a change of pace. That, and they look better than a plain ol' toasted sandwich. ^_^

I made a roll for my husband this morning for breakfast. I handed him the plate, and the first thing out of his mouth was "Banana sushi?", so I guess that's what it's called in this household now.

This is just a jiffy bento, so I have something waiting for me to eat after work. Strawberry yogurt in the top tier, banana sushi underneath. I had planned on filling in the gaps with the last of my red grapes, but unbeknownst to me, they were eaten last night. ;(

Go piggy bento, go! I really love this one, so cute! Planning on getting a grape Putifresh box from eBay this weekend (payday Thursday!), unless I can find another I'd prefer.

Your banana sushi looks so cute. How long does it take before they brown? Do you brush them wish lemon juice or anything to keep their color nice?

I made them around ~8:30 that morning, and ate it when I got home from work around ~6:30PM or so. It hadn't browned, and I didn't use lemon juice. :)

I decided I would have to try something similar. I didn't have tortillas at the time, so I let the peel serve as the wrapping. I linked my blog to this entry, since it was were I got the idea.

Thanks again for the great idea!
