Hummus is a Great Bento Item

I like adding hummus to bento boxes because 1. protein source and 2. allows many dipping options. By dipping options, I mean carrot sticks, celery, crackers... you get the idea. Featured in these two boxes is the Red Bean Merlot grapeseed oil hummus and the Garbanzo Riesling grapeseed oil hummus. I used to daydream of making my own hummus, but after tasting these, why bother?

Other items in the large square bento box are carrots, lettuce wrapped veggie burgers, insalata caprese, haupia, strawberry and lychee medley. The small box contains yellow carrots (a dipping option), insalata caprese and some olive garnish.
