Dinosaur Quesadillas Bento
This dinosaur-themed bento is just too cute to eat. The flower garden is made up of a leafy salad strewn with edible flowers. At the side is a dinosaur nest made up of a base of tortilla chips, mixed nuts and a boiled egg with dots

Servings: bento box

To make Chicken Cheese Filling:
Marinate the chicken fillet with the cajun spice, ground turmeric and a dash of salt. Set aside for at least 15 minutes.
Heat the cooking oil and sauté the sliced onions until translucent.
Toss in the chopped zucchini and sauté for another 4 minutes.
Add in the marinated chicken and cook for about 8 minutes until cooked through.
Taste and add more salt, only if needed.
To make Dinosaur Quesadillas:
Use a dinosaur cookie cutter and press into 6-Grain Wraps to create four pieces of dinosaur-shaped wraps.
Lightly spread softened butter on the outer side of the dinosaur-shaped wraps.
Top a shaped wrap with the Chicken Cheese Filling evenly before adding some shredded cheese.
Top with another piece of dinosaur wrap.
Heat the dinosaur quesadillas on a flat non-stick pan until the cheese melts and the wrap is a nice golden brown. Do the same with the other side of the quesadillas.
Break off triangular ends of garlic & butter chips and place them between the two wraps to make spikes for the dinosaur quesadillas.
To assemble the Dinosaur Quesadillas Bento Box:
Place the lettuce in a bento box and sprinkle the edible flowers before placing the two dinosaur quesadillas on top.
To create the dinosaur egg, use a little paintbrush to dot the hard boiled eggs with beet root juice.
Place the egg on some garlic & butter chips in a smaller container, topped with mixed nuts to create the Dinosaur Egg Nest.
Add in some grapes or your choice of fruits for a sweet dessert for your Dinosaur Quesadillas Bento.
