Seasoning the Rice:

When I first started making bentos I never seasoned rice, and Husband would forget his bentos, which was a polite way of saying your food isn’t tasty! So Remember to Season!

My portions are for 3 cups of uncooked rice, i use the following ratio of salt, sugar, vinegar
  • 1.5 teaspoons of salt
  • 3 teaspoons of sugar
  • 4 teaspoons of rice vinegar.
Also you can add flavour to the rice by throwing in to the pot as it cooks, nuts, beans, legumes, mushrooms, dried seafood and various other things. But practice! As some product will colour your rice. Ie Mushrooms will give your rice a brown colour… okay for Bears but not okay for Police Cars.
