Done in 3 Minutes! Green Bell Peppers with Bonito Flakes

Ready in a flash! The green bell peppers are so vibrant, making this dish perfect as a bento item, too.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Green bell peppers
3
Bonito flakes
3 g (1 small packet)
Dashi soy sauce (or mentsuyu)
2 teaspoons

Steps

1. Take the seeds out of the green bell peppers and slice it into 1 cm wide strips.
2. Microwave the green bell peppers! (Adjust the microwaving time accordingly. To retain their crispiness, keep an eye on them, being careful not to overcook them.)
3. Just mix in the bonito flakes and dashi soy sauce while the green bell peppers are still piping hot!!

Story Behind this Recipe

I whip this up when I want to add a touch of green to my bento. It's also delicious if you add sesame seeds instead of bonito flakes.
