Tu Be’av / Valentine’s Day Bento – rice, egg, fruit, and vegetables

Happy Tu Be’Av! The Jewish Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so to celebrate my love for my awesome daughter, I made her a loving bento.

Tu Be'av/Valentine's Day Bento

This isn’t my most beautiful bento, but I wanted to give you a bunch of ideas of what you can do, so without further ado, here are the explanations:

1) Heart-shaped egg. I used an egg mold. You can’t really tell from the angle of the photo, but its a heart.

2) Heart-shaped melon – I used a small cookie cutter

3) Heart cut out carrots and cucumbers – I used a small cookie cutter to cut a heart out of each veggie and then just switched the insides. Very simple.

4) Heart cut out apples – Same as above. I cut out small hearts from each apple wedge and then switched them out. Very easy and very cute.

5) Heart cherry tomatoes – I sliced 2 tomatoes at a 45 degree angle, flipped on side over, and then attached with a pick.

6) Pink heart-shaped rice – I used some beat juice to color the rice pink (all natural) and then an egg mold to shape it.

Here are links to buy the different accessories on eBay:
