Place the the 2 mm thick slices of kamaboko so that they overlap, and roll them up from one end.
Cut a slit in the center of the white kamaboko, cutting all the way through.
Press the rolled-up, red kamaboko into the slit of the white kamaboko.
Boil briefly. Cut a green bean on a very thin diagonal and arrange the slices to look like leaves.
Story Behind this Recipe
The other day, I had an opportunity to make a bento, and I thought I'd try making these kamaboko flowers. Because these don't need to be secured with a toothpick, they are safe for children's bento boxes.
