What's In My Lunch Box? Cod "Meatballs," Wild Rice, Sautéed Asparagus & Bell Peppers

A little intro to the What's In My Lunch Box series:
Bringing lunch to work/school doesn't have to be boring! By marrying the Korean & Japanese art of Doshirak/Bento to a busy North American lifestyle, we will feature delicious home-cooked, healthy, and INTERESTING brown-bag options to bring to work - a lot of flavor and fun that's light on your waistline and your wallet. Bonus: these options feature a lot of items that can be made in 45 minutes or less, or ahead of time and frozen.

In Ines' lunchbox today (lovingly packaged by her Korean mama):

  • Sautéed asparagus & red bell pepper (takes 15 mins or so)
  • Wild & brown rice as a starch (ignore the freaky purple color, it's delicious - about 30 mins in a pressure cooker)
  • Korean-style cod "meatballs," topped with a little Sriracha (actually a kind of "jeon" or egg-coated, pan-fried meat patty sort of thing - made ahead of time (~1 hr for prep) and cooked the day of - about 10 mins)
  • Not pictured: a nectarine, an orange, blackberry Greek yogurt, cucumber crudités as snacks throughout the day (almost no time to prep, just throw them in your lunch bag)
