New Year's Bento

New Year's Bento:

In Japan, soba (buckwheat noodles) symbolize longevity and are traditionally eaten on New Year‘s eve. I’m nine days too late but I thought it was time again so I combined the soba with stir-fried gobō (burdock root.. I LOVE this vegetable!) and carrots in mirin and soy sauce and it turned out delicious.

This looks like a nice tasty bento! :3 I don't have easy access to gobo, but I can see myself making everything else here at some point. Mmm, stir-fry.

That has to be the coolest broccoli I've seen, too. I'm going to have to look that stuff up. Does it taste like regular broccoli, or is it different?

Thank you! :) It's luck that I got the gobo hehe
the romanesco broccoli's taste is a mix of cauliflower and broccoli :)

Wow, this is an absolutely gorgeous bento arrangement. I love how the contrasting colours pop against the black background of the bento box. Plus your description is making me hungry... gobō os sooo tasty! (BTW my tea-ceremony group just celebrated Hatsugama so we got to enjoy a little gobō along with all the other 'red-and-whites' :-)
