chickpea pie bento

Chickpea curry pie, garlic-baked broccoli, beans, Hello Panda, mandarin and hommus.

I made the pie from left over chickpea curry and some reduced-fat puff pastry I found in the freezer. It turned out very nice. ^_^

Calories: 459 (1920kj)

Time & process:
  1. Bake broccoli with sliced garlic (make pies and add them to the oven) - 20 minutes
  2. Peel mandarin and place in bento box with other snacks - 5 minutes
  3. Place cooled pie and broccoli in bento box with beans - 3 minutes


  1. I ADORE savory pies... they're adorable! Very creative of you. I'll have to see if I can find reduced-fat puff pastry dough here and do this. Great little lunch =)

  2. It's very easy, and you can put what ever you like in them.

    Brush the tops of the pies with a little milk so they brown nicely while cooking. ^_^

  3. I have never heard of a chickpea pie. So creative and makes me want to try it soon.
    btw, I am loving your bento box collection. Where do you buy most of your bento boxes?

  4. I have bought most of my bento boxes off eBay.
    Prices are usually lower there.
