I finally got around to actually make something in the evening that I could pack as a premade bento! But taking a photo in lamplight made the colors go all horrible ;_; I fixed it up as well as I could in photoshop (the original was MUCH darker) but it still irks me.
* Mezze Penne Tricolore (three-colored halfsize penne pasta) with fried eggplant and tomato sauce, topped with some feta cheese and basil.
Recipe: Cook pasta (no, really?).
Cut the eggplant into thin slices and then dice from there so it'll cook more evenly. Spread it out on some kitchen paper and sprinkle with salt to remove the bitterness. Leave for a few minutes, then dry with some more kitchen paper and remove the excess salt.
In a pan, heat some olive oil and finely chopped garlic. Spread it out evenly and sprinkle a cup of the diced eggplant in it. Fry until the eggplant seems cooked well. Add a cup of squished tomatoes, salt, pepper, french herbs (herbes de provence) and sugar to taste and let it cook for a while so the sauce gets a bit thicker.
Serve the eggplant sauce over the pasta with a bit of feta cheese and basil mixed in or sprinkled over the top.
* Radicchio salad in a yoghurt, balsamico and garlic dressing, carrot cutout for decoration.
Recipe: Find some radicchio salad (google images helps you if you don't know what it is. It's a somewhat bitter red salad in a tight bunch).
For the dressing, mix two tablespoons of turkish thick yoghurt with a tablespoon of balsamico vinegar and crushed garlic (use very little if you're afraid of making your workmates choke). Add salt, pepper and olive oil to taste (I usually eat my salad very sour so I leave out the olive oil).
This is a rather sour/bitter salad, so if you're not as happy with that as I am, I would suggest relieving the bitterness by putting some diced apple in it, or using (sour) cream instead of yoghurt.
