Bento Recipes: Rice with anko


Back to the
or the


This is rice with sweet red bean paste. It's filling, desserty, and easy to make. Make some rice, and open a can of anko. When you pack the rice in your bento box, make a hole in the center and fill that with anko. How much is up to you; you may like it sweeter or less sweet, and the anko you have may be stiff or easy to mix. I use about 1/16 as much anko as rice.

If you are not going to microwave this before you eat it, you might want to mix the anko in before packing it; it's hard to stir anko evenly into cold rice.
