Today I'm sharing a garden themed bento lunch with tortilla wrap spirals. We love tortilla wraps, and I frequently use them in packed lunches because they are so versatile! From quesadillas to homemade tortilla crisps to simple filled wraps and bite-sized spirals, there is so much you can do with tortillas wraps and they make a great alternative to sandwiches.
This lunch was one of those lunches that looks more complicated to make than it actually was - I packed it in a cute strawberry shaped tiered bento box and simply filled the bottom layer with the tortilla spirals and the top with neatly arranged fruits and veggies. The beauty of this kind of bento lunch is that everything is packed in quite tightly, so it doesn't move around much when being swung around en route to school. I also used bento food picks, which helped to hold things in place and also add a cute decorative touch to the lunch.
In this lunch I packed a tortilla wrap, which I filled with houmous, Italian sausage slices and lettuce, then rolled up and sliced into bite size pieces. In the second layer of the bento box I packed a chunk of cucumber, which I cut into two with a zig-zag pattern and topped with cute bee bento picks, A mandarin orange, which I peeled and gently pulled apart to form a flower, leaving the segments joined at the bottom, then topped with a strawberry and butterfly bento pick to hold it together. I also packed some more strawberry slices and filled the gaps in with blueberries. I carved a ladybird pattern into a mini Babybel cheese using a small sharp knife and circle shaped mini bento cutters, and finished the lunch off with a few ladybird bento picks to decorate the tortilla spirals.
Here's a closer look at the fruit and veggie layer, I do love packing this more traditional style bento lunch, as it takes very little effort to produce something pretty!
Small Child clearly enjoyed this bento lunch as he ate the lot!
