After cooked, remove fish and kombu. Remove fish bones and break fish into small pieces. Return to rice cooker and mix.

*the recipe used a word translated in my dictionary as “wooden clappers,” if you’d like to do your own research, it was “hyoushigi” 「ひょうしぎ」「 拍子木」

80g fava beans

Heat vegetable oil in frying pan, add peppers and beans, cook until wilted (C). Add salt, sugar, and water. Cook until moisture is gone, then add soy sauce and remove from heat. Pile rice into bento box and top with peppers and beans.
