Book/Website Review: Just Bento

My Recent Creation!

Recently I bought this book and over the last few weeks I have been testing it out.  While there are several recipes that use wheat, I find that I can make easy modifications with good results.

For example: In place of regular corn flakes, I used gluten-free Corn Chex on the Chicken Nuggets.  The important thing is to make sure is is crushed up quite a bit otherwise it falls off pretty easily in the hot oil.  I also added horseradish to the Crab Meat and Cabbage Slaw.  It is important to make sure you are buying GF Soy Sauce and other products.  Please read labels carefully.  I have been surprised by rather innocent looking products.  Be on the lookout for "Textured Vegetable Protein" or "Maltodextrin."

The best recipe in my opinion is the Sweet and Sour Pork and Shrimp Balls.
