Cookbook, “Modern Lunch,” by Allison Day.
Canadian food blogger Allison Day believes that “life is too short to eat a bad lunch.”
The goal of her new cookbook, “Modern Lunch,” is to offer creative ideas for delicious lunches that are budget-conscious and easy to prepare.
This flavorful recipe even includes “edible dinnerware” in the form of a vegetable wrap.
It calls for ground chicken, but you can substitute crumbled tofu if you want to make it vegetarian. It takes 20 minutes to prepare and will keep in the fridge for up to five days.

CHICKEN, EGGPLANT AND BASIL WRAPS WITH CASHEWS
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 pound ground chicken or 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts pulsed in a food processor until minced
2 Chinese eggplants, sliced into thin rounds
Heaping 1/2 cup unsalted raw or roasted cashews
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons gluten-free tamari or soy sauce
2 green onions (white and green parts), minced
2 cups coarsely torn basil leaves (use Thai basil if available)
1 head lettuce such as iceberg or Bibb, or cabbage, leaves separated
For the filling, in a large, high-sided or nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.
Add the chicken, eggplant and cashews, and sauté until the chicken is cooked through and the eggplant is tender and browned, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Stir in the vinegar and tamari or soy sauce and cook for 1 minute longer, until the liquid is absorbed.
Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the green onion and basil. Transfer the filling to a large container or bowl, cool, seal or cover, and refrigerate until you are ready to assemble the wraps.
To assemble, divide the filling between 4 bento boxes or containers. Roll the lettuce leaves and tuck them in bento boxes or containers or securely wrap and pack on the side.
Seal everything up and refrigerate until you are ready to take it with you.
