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. Recipe and photo courtesy of Mission Foods.

Servings: bento box
To make Chicken Cheese Filling:
  1. Marinate the chicken fillet with the cajun spice, ground turmeric and a dash of salt. Set aside for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the cooking oil and sauté the sliced onions until translucent.
  3. Toss in the chopped zucchini and sauté for another 4 minutes.
  4. Add in the marinated chicken and cook for about 8 minutes until cooked through.
  5. Taste and add more salt, only if needed.
To make Dinosaur Quesadillas:
  1. Use a dinosaur cookie cutter and press into 6-Grain Wraps to create four pieces of dinosaur-shaped wraps.
  2. Lightly spread softened butter on the outer side of the dinosaur-shaped wraps.
  3. Top a shaped wrap with the Chicken Cheese Filling evenly before adding some shredded cheese.
  4. Top with another piece of dinosaur wrap.
  5. 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.
  6. 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:
  1. Place the lettuce in a bento box and sprinkle the edible flowers before placing the two dinosaur quesadillas on top.
  2. To create the dinosaur egg, use a little paintbrush to dot the hard boiled eggs with beet root juice.
  3. Place the egg on some garlic & butter chips in a smaller container, topped with mixed nuts to create the Dinosaur Egg Nest.
  4. Add in some grapes or your choice of fruits for a sweet dessert for your Dinosaur Quesadillas Bento.
