Low-Carb Bento: Soy Sauce Duck & Creamy Rocket Salad



Another try to do a low-carb diet...;). I did try it last year but it didn't last very long, I hope this year I can be more disciplined. One reason why I want to try this diet again is because I have noticed that I have been eating too much carb lately. I crave carb and I think I am even addicted to it, which I don't think is very good. This doesn't mean that I am planning to cut out carb completely from my life, since I don't want to go to another extreme. I will still eat it, but in much smaller portions. I will still eat out from time to time and enjoy my carb during these occasions, but I will try to eat low-carb meals at home. This means you will also see more low-carb bentos in my blog, just like this bento here. I will nevertheless try to make one or two cute bentos in a month, because making pretty, cute bentos is my hobby, which I don't intend to abandon in the near future :).

Soy Sauce Duck
  • 1 duck breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • sweetener, to taste (optional)
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp chopped green onion

Pan-fry the duck for 1 minute with olive oil. Add the onion and stir until it's slightly brown. Add soy sauce, sweetener and black pepper. Cook for another minute. Garnish with green onions.

Creamy Rocket Salad

  • 50 g mixed salad greens
  • 50 g rocket
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 - 10 mini mozzarella balls
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chicken powder
  • 100 ml cream
  • 1 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1 Tbsp chopped red onion
  • 1/2 tsp sweetener (optional)
  • black pepper, to taste

Combine all the salad ingredients. Topped with the soy sauce duck and soy sauce egg for garnish.


SOMEBODY STOLE MY BLOG CONTENTS

Today, by chance I found a blog which copied and pasted my 'Bento - Charaben' section to his/her blog without my permission. I have seen my blogger friends getting furious because other people stole their blog contents. I thought that I was lucky that something like this never happened to me. Apparently this was just wishful thinking. There are so many irresponsible people out who don't even understand one of the most basic ethical codes. I have reported his/her blog to Google and I hope that this blog would be deleted soon. When you check this link out, you will notice that the rest of the blog entries are also stolen from other blogs: http://freecookingposts.blogspot.de/search/label/Bento%20-%20Charaben !!

On a lighter note, let me end this post with a HAPPY EASTER :)!

    Das mit dem Klauen ist echt übel... Ich hoffe, das klärt sich bald auf!

  2. Diet or not the recipe sounds wonderful. Be aware that there are just a few calories difference in meats/proteins and foods with carbs. Proteins take longer for the body to process.My daughter and I found we still have to consider calories. Good luck with the diet. Thanks for the sharing the recipe.
